Midnight by BakerZin

Mooncakes have become more exotic over the years and it is no surprise that dessert chain, BakerZin presents a series of contemporary feel to its mooncakes. Black is a classic colour but has never been a lucky colour for the Chinese neither are black food tempting.

Sesame Truffle Mini Snowskin

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.

Sesame Truffle Mini Snowskin
$36 nett for a box of 8

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.

Yup, something different...

I tried the Pink Champagne too... Love the strawberry flavoured skin... but the core is disappointing... Ganache is rough with no champagne at all..

Thank you for your compliment. It was Yuan's idea to use weiqi as props...
