Colourful Snowskin Mooncakes 彩色冰皮月饼

This is my 1st batch of mooncakes this year, made this for my two sons and my sister who prefer snowskin mooncake. This time, I found a very easy to handle snowskin recipe. At first, I was thinking to make 100% natural colours of mooncake, but the end, I have to replace some with food colouring to bring out the nice colour tone. Nevertheless, I was happy to see the natural nice blue from blue pea flower (bunga telang).



One tip to share, make sure you add the colouring into the water first but not add into dough later as when you work more, the dough tend to turned rough.
Like this example, I use strawberry powder for pink, so first I dissolved this powder with water first before mix with flour.
You can see the orange one is a bit rough, because I use yellow dough to add with red food colouring, work too much, it became rough!


Since I didn't prepare pandan paste, I blend 2pcs pandan leaves only and the green colour is not that strong, so I have to drop some green food colouring
I just use this type of jelly mould to imprint the rose pattern


Snowskin mooncake is very easy to prepare.
First sieve koh fun and icing sugar


Rub in the shortening 


add in coloured iced cold water

Don't worry if you see the mixture is wet, just continue to mix

It will turn to smooth but don't over work it !

Like this mini size of mooncake, handy and can choose your favourite colour ^_^
