Raffles Hotel charms this Mid Autumn with handcrafted legends!

~Sponsored Post~

In the realm of snowskin mooncakes, the classics of lotus paste and pine nuts have gone so passe, the alcoholics range are the norm. The fads are the innovative pairing of fruity and tea flavours! Raffles Hotel is back this year with a hand crafted showcase of classic and new flavours. Infact, this battle of the snowskins have gone so far back in time, I count Raffles Hotel as a family favourite every single year.


Snow-Skin Earl Grey Tea and Chocolate Pearl Truffle Mooncake ($70, 8 pieces)


New this year is the Snow-Skin Earl Grey Tea and Chocolate Pearl Truffle Mooncake. Premium Earl Grey tea is infused into a milk chocolate truffle core, speckled with dainty puff cereal pearls wrapped in dark chocolate.


The Earl Grey Tea fragrance is mild and was easily overshadowed by the chocolate pearl truffles.


Snow-Skin Champagne Truffle and Ganache Mooncake ($72, 8 pieces)


I count this as my personal favourite alongside my fellow citizens' perennial favourite snowskin.  Powder-soft and fragrant snow-skin wraps around the creamy white lotus paste, at its heart of which is the delightful Champagne truffle.

Very decadent down to the last morsel, some may find the banana essenced skin over powering but I do love a deep whiff of this before sinking my teeth into their soft mooncakes - so easy to destruct with a single nudge even. And without fail, I always save the best of the last by savouring the chocolate pearl on its own for that alcoholic rush.
