Surprisingly for this year, it is the black mooncakes that caught my attention. Apart from Home Favourite's black durian mooncake, BakerZin adopts the use of bamboo charcoal for its snowskin.
Although the filling is said to encases a blend of sweet lotus and black sesame paste, the overall feel is similar to eating black sesame soup (a type of Cantonese dessert, 芝麻糊). Nothing fanciful but each mouthful is filled with the goodness of the rich black sesame. Hence, fans of this Chinese dessert should not give this a miss. The overall feel is similar to black sesame paste.
