Mooncakes! The season is around the corner, and I spent a morning with a dear friend Rina, helping to photograph her homemade mooncakes for her new bake shop, Oven Bakes. A much older relative has been selling mooncakes from her home for nearly three decades to a small but loyal customer following. Rina is now taking over the business, serving their long-time and mostly older folk customers, and hoping to reach out to a younger customer base as well.
Oven Bakes also offers durian mooncakes, and even some mooncakes with macadamia nuts! Although I consider myself to be rather traditional in my taste for mooncakes, preferring the regular baked mooncakes with lotus paste, melon seeds and egg yolks, I must say that the macadamia nuts ones are oh-so-good.
Oven Bakes offers free delivery to one local address for orders of at least 12 boxes. You can find the Order Information and Price List on their Facebook Page, and they can be contacted at email@example.com.
Oven Bakes will be offering other baked goods for sale in the near future. Like the Facebook Page for updates, or if not, I'll be sure to tell you about it here!
