This year's mooncake box



This year marks the second year in a row that we have a really scaled-down sale of mooncakes for the Mid-Autumn Festival because of the ongoing pandemic. Prices are higher and you have to pay extra for the fancy boxes with the drawers/ unique box designs. Plus you are not allowed to sample the products. So the safest bet is to go with the mooncakes from a 5 star hotel that has a reputable Chinese restaurant.

Meet the Yam family's first box of mooncakes for 2021! 


The round tin box has cut-out windows with some lovely bird and bloom designs. And the 4 mooncakes sit on a 2 -tier tray. The mooncakes are individually wrapped for freshness. Yep...you get 4 mooncakes for US$45. The only upside is that each is so rich and decadent that the whole family shares 1 mooncake...and that is enough. *LOL*


And here is the matching paper bag for the box of mooncakes.  The paper bags for mooncakes are specially designed with wide bottoms to fit the box snugly so the box stays put during transportation. 

The paper bag is so pretty! I'm going to fussy-cut the images and use it on a layout. :)

As for the tin box...I was thinking of making it a lantern. How fun! *winks*
 

P/s: My wrist is much much better...I'll play catchup on your blogs this week.  Meanwhile, have a great week ahead!

Oooh, such a pretty container! I really want to try a quality mooncake someday (without spending $45 to do so).

That is a gorgeous presentation but I would have a hard time eating $45 mooncakes. I won't complain about the price of our local treats.
