Nian Tze’s Mooncakes and Recipes


Nian Tze was always known for her generosity back when we used to be colleagues. This time around, I could not help but thought about her mooncakes as the Mid-Autumn Festival is drawing near. I bought 2 flavours from her and she gifted me with two others and so I thought why not compile her recipes here!

I’m not sure if she is still taking orders but I’ve included the price per piece if anyone wishes to try their luck! :p
