The Fullerton Hotel Singapore celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival with a line-up of classic and innovative mooncake treasures.
Elegantly encased in auspicious colours of red and gold and adorned with birds and a cherry blossom motif, the mooncake selections make perfect gifts for business associates, friends and family. All mooncakes – with the exception of The Fullerton 15 Treasures that is made in-house – are crafted from original Fullerton recipes and certified Halal.
Taking centre-stage and adding to the snow skin medley this year is the Kopi with Salted Hokkaido Milk Snow Skin Mooncake (冰皮咖啡北海道咸牛奶), which is wrapped in a velvety snow skin. Incorporating elements of the pure dairy that Hokkaido is famed for, the robust coffee paste is studded with a salted milk core, alluding to the popular Heritage Coffee served at The Courtyard of The Fullerton Hotel Singapore.
Also new is the Tangerine Lemon and Pistachio Snow Skin Mooncake (冰皮金橘柠檬开心果), which evokes nostalgic memories of the tart lemon biscuits many enjoyed from their childhood upon first bite. Translated directly from Mandarin, pistachios mean “happy fruit”, which is why Chinese Executive Chef of Jade, Leong Chee Yeng, has included slivers of nuts in the mix as he believes most meals should “end on a happy note”. An artist himself, Chef Leong personally designed the emblematic Fullerton snowskin mooncake teardrop-shaped mould, which signifies ancient Chinese belt buckles that were considered to be a product of nobility and literati.
Fall back on perennial favourites such as the White Lotus Seed Paste with Egg Yolk Snow Skin Mooncake (冰皮蛋黄白莲蓉), which features a smooth salty-sweet white lotus seed paste while the Pandan with Gula Melaka Snow Skin Mooncake (冰皮香兰椰糖), a yearly signature, is a blend of aromatic pandan and caramel-flavoured palm sugar.
For connoisseurs of the traditional mooncake, the newly introduced Pandan with Coconut Baked Mooncake (香兰椰子) is inspired by pandan chiffon, which was declared as Singapore’s National Cake this year. For those who prefer something less sweet, the Salted Taro with Peanut Butter Baked Mooncake (咸芋泥花生) is a prime choice for its predominantly savoury notes.
Complementing the new varieties is a range of classics such as White Lotus Seed Paste with Single / Double Yolk Baked Mooncake (单黄白莲蓉 / 双黄白莲蓉). Back by popular demand is the signature favourite, The Fullerton Golden Custard Mini Mooncake (富丽敦奶黄金), a combination of savoury salted egg yolk and sweet custard encased in a light butter pastry.
Making a unique gift is The Fullerton 15 Treasures Premium Gift Set (富丽敦黄金十五月), available in limited quantities. Symbolising the full moon on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month is a single baked mooncake with eight egg yolks encased in a white lotus seed paste. Encircling it are 14 assorted baked mooncake flavours in alternating shapes of a celestial hare, cloud and graceful butterfly; which signify vivacity, prosperity and bliss.
