Tsum Tsum Snow Skin Mooncakes: Pooh & Friends

September 13, 2015

Have you ever played the game, Tsum Tsum? I am far from being a gamer, and rarely even play games on my phone; But I was hooked the moment I scrolled pass Tsum Tsum on the app store and have not stopped playing since then. I must confess that my main reason for loving the game is extremely superficial - the truth is because the characters are SO CUTE. They look like potato versions of their characters. How does Disney manage to make their characters appear even cuter than they originally were?! And why am I always so susceptible to such cute marketing gimmicks? I even purchased a Mickey Tsum Tsum soft toy for my bedroom. 

I guess by now you can comprehend the full magnitude of my obsession with Tsum Tsum. And with Mooncake festival around the corner, I was inspired to make snowskin Tsum Tsums! I prefer snowskin mooncakes over the traditional baked mooncakes because of its chewy exterior. You can purchase instant snowskin mix from your local baking supplies store. I purchased mine from Phoon Huat. They also sell instant lotus paste for the mooncake filling. If you prefer less sweetened desserts, go for the white lotus paste as there's less sugar added. 

If you prefer the traditional mooncake look, you can always purchase the mooncake moulds. However, if you want something unique that no one else is selling in the market, then definitely try to make these Tsum Tsum mooncakes! They are sure to impress your relatives, friends or colleagues. The difficulty is in cutting them open to eat them cause they are so darn cute.
