A lovely scent wafts into the kitchen as the oven door opens and trays of brown mooncakes, perfectly formed, emerge.
The flavours are unique and delicate: White Lotus Melon Seeds, Lychee Raspberry, Yuzu with Melon Seeds and Pandan with Melon Seeds.
Chye Hui Fun, 45, trainer at Metta Cafe, was responsible for coming up with some of the creative mooncakes flavours. “I’ve always loved experimenting with new flavours. Yuzu gives off a refreshing taste while pandan is a local favourite and that’s how we decided to present our new flavours.”
This year’s Mid-Autumn Festival offerings produced to raise funds for Enabling Village are the handiwork of bakers with disabilities from Metta Cafe and MINDS.
Cher Wei Jie, 28, and fellow baker Shirley Heng, 32, are both from Metta Cafe are making mooncakes for the first time.
