Mid-Autumn Festival is rolling right around the corner – 4 October 2017, to be exact – and it wouldn’t be complete without presenting your loved ones with the traditional gift of mooncakes. This year, Fairmont Singapore has something special as well – their inaugural range of Fairmont-branded velvety snowskin mooncakes that old and young will enjoy.
Inspired by vibrant autumnal flowers, Fairmont’s snowskin mooncakes are both a visual and gastronomic treat with their delicate pastel hues and sumptuous flavours. Encased in a tiffany-blue exterior, and filled with crispy feuilletine flakes and creamy milk couverture, the brand-new Golden Caramel Crunch snowskin mooncake is a textural and decadent must-try. Snowskin signatures that we’re happy to see return this year include the aromatic Imperial Yuzu (yuzu and crunchy chocolate pearls), the liquor-laced Rum and Raisin Truffle, and our perennial favourite, the silky Champagne Truffle and Chocolate Ganache.
Still prefer the classic baked mooncake? Fairmont’s range of baked treats is just for you (and not to mention, you can’t go wrong with these for gifting clients!). Indulge in the Baked Mooncake with Double Yolk in White Lotus Paste that recalls the full moon and joyous family reunions, while the guilt-free Baked Mooncake with Five Grains in White Lotus Paste, featuring a medley of five sacred crops of ancient China (walnuts, almonds, sunflower seeds, melon seeds and white sesame), is perfect for the health-conscious and the history geek this season.
The packaging for Fairmont’s mooncakes this year is no less appealing. Enclosed in an exquisite, red leather-clad chest of drawers (see top image), each tier presents individual baked mooncakes accompanied by fragrant tea leaves encased in a modern bamboo container – an ode to the afternoon tea at Fairmont Singapore’s much loved lounge and bar Anti:dote – making it a lavish gift for your loved ones.
The icing on the (moon)cake is how easily you can order these divine morsels through Fairmont Singapore’s easy-to-navigate online system. Order online now to 17 September 2017, and enjoy the early bird privilege of 20% off with a minimum purchase of two boxes of mooncakes! Alternatively, if you’d like to try before you buy, visit their booth at Level 2 of Fairmont Singapore or their roadshow booths at Takashimaya and VivoCity from now till 4 October 2017.
