I showed you the fruit and nut version of mooncakes last year. This year my oldest uncle's family gave me the lotus and taro paste versions with egg yolk inside. The white "snowskin" mooncake was made by my oldest uncle's wife. The little taro bun was bakery-bought. It's actually quite pretty but I'm saving close-ups for a separate post.
The fillings. I was positively famished that day. Ate half the taro paste snowskin mooncake before I even thought to take a photo. And as you can see, a very lazy photo at that. Sorry! Hunger trumps pictures. :P
One of my students also gave me these two buns. The one on the left had black sesame paste and the one on the right had a big egg yolk.
Daphne of More Than Words made snowskin mooncakes if you'd like a recipe.
