Overall, i think these mooncakes taste good but i got a little disappointed that it doesnt look as great as i was expecting. It's not brown enough and one mistake that i did was i applied too much egg wash on the mooncakes surface which distorted the patterns on the surface..therefore the prints looked rather blur. So i shall remember this point the next time i make mooncakes..next year.
