The annual mid-Autumn Festival (13 September) is just a few weeks away, bringing with it once more a slew of mooncake options that range from sweet to savoury. If you’re looking for delicious mooncakes packaged in a stylish yet functional box, The Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore’s offering ticks all the right boxes.
Great for gifting
The elegant two-tiered box makes a return, this time as a chic centrepiece, and stylish complement to any desk, even after the festivity. The top flap opens to reveal a magnetic calendar, a three-slot penholder and a miniature photo-frame. The top box and four side drawers are roomy enough to hold a variety of stationery. The boxes are available in red — for traditional baked mooncakes — and gold for the snowskin variety.
One of the two new flavours released this year is the ‘Orangetini’, which joins the lineup of assorted mini snowskin martinis. Bite into the satin-soft skin for a liqueur-laced fusion of orange zest and chocolate. The original ‘Lycheetini’ remains, with a medley of fruit liqueur and real lychee bits for tiny explosions of sweetness.
The other new flavour debuting this year is the white lotus seed paste with black sesame. The addition of black sesame lends a nutty nuance and a subtle sweetness to the traditional baked mooncake.
Classic crowd favourites
Big and bold flavour now comes in larger portions — the snowskin ‘Mao Shang Wang’ durian mooncakes are also available in four, regular-sized pieces. Cut through the delicate skin and be greeted by the heady aroma, and creamy richness of the durian filling. Timeless classics such as the mini snowskin green tea and mini snowskin white lotus seed paste with yolk are available alongside perennial favourites such as the white lotus seed paste with double yolk.
