I am encouraged by my few successful attempts at making jelly mooncakes. I am eager  to try more recipes as  I find these jelly mooncakes very pretty. They make great desserts and they are very tasty and refreshing. 

Honey Dew Filling

1.  In a pot, bring the first 4 ingredients to the boil. Switch off the fire and add condensed milk and colouring.
2.  Pour into tart moulds or muffin pans. 
3.  Please visit my  post  Cendol Jelly Mooncake for a step-by-step guide on making the filling.

Assembling the Mooncake

For a step-by-step guide on assembling the jelly mooncake, please visit my previous posts on Cendol Jelly Mooncake and Mango Jelly Mooncake 

The concept of assembling the jelly mooncake is the same.

  5. These are so pretty. I have not had the real mooncakes in years and these could easily bluff my palate for the real thing :-) First, I need to get the moulds...

    1. I wish you success in your mooncake making.

  6. 3 Studies SHOW How Coconut Oil Kills Waist Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually kill fat by eating Coconut Fat (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from big medicinal journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
