Classic Artisanal and Assorted Premium Baked Mooncake
This year, The Westin Surabaya‘s Culinary Team presents a collection of baked mooncakes in two variants: the Classic Artisanal Baked Mooncake and the Assorted Premium Baked Mooncake. Both variants not only offer delectable mooncakes but also come in elegant packaging, making them unforgettable gifts for this special occasion.
The Classic Artisanal Baked Mooncake consists of four flavors of baked mooncakes without salted egg yolks: White Lotus, Pandan, Green Tea, and Red Bean. These mooncakes are crafted using the finest ingredients, such as White Lotus, made from lotus seed paste, melon seeds, golden syrup, and peanut oil. Under the skillful hands of The Westin Culinary Team, these ingredients transform into mooncakes with a rich, savory, and smooth taste.
The four mooncakes of the Classic Artisanal Baked Mooncake are packaged in a chic bag, a leather tote adorned with a scarf and chain embellished with the Westin logo. This logo can be customized to a personal or corporate logo, making it an elegant gift for clients, colleagues, and business partners.
The Assorted Premium Baked Mooncake, made for those who prefer a richer flavor experience, includes Bamboo Charcoal Premium White Lotus, Yam Taro Lotus, Black Sesame Filling, and Premium Mixed Treasure Nuts Filling with the addition of salted egg yolks. Apart from indulging the taste buds, these premium mooncakes also utilize ingredients with health benefits, such as Black Sesame, which is known for improving digestion, reducing stress, being rich in antioxidants, and combating early aging.
The Assorted Premium Baked Mooncake is packaged in an ornament box, adorned with majestic Chinese ornaments. In addition to the four variants of Assorted Premium Baked Mooncakes, the box comes with a limited-edition set of gold plates and chopsticks, enhancing the mooncake indulgence experience.
