Moon Cakes

It is most certainly moon cake time in Thailand. A traditionally Chinese festival widely celebrated in Thailand. It is to celebrate the harvest time of year. Moon Cakes are little stodgy cupcakes with different flavours given to family and friends by pretty much everyone in Thailand. Every single media owner has given bags and bags of them to us at the office. Problem is, no one seems to actually like eating them. Everyone buys them and gives them to loved ones, but I have yet to meet anyone eating one. In fact, everyone at my office tried to off-load their bag of moon cakes on me thinking a foreigner might enjoy them.

They look beautiful but the taste is very strange. They are sweet, very sweet, with custard and cream and egg. Some have different innards but they are all encased in this heavy cake. They are so dense you could knock a grown man out with one.
