Aspiring bakers

I've been following Aspiring Bakers for quite a well. It's actually a monthly event and serves as a platform for bakers to share their baking recipes etc. Each month there are different themes from different hosting bakers and this month of cox it's MOONCAKE! To suit the festive! Duhh.. HAHA!

So I thought since I'm making mooncakes, why not poke my head in too! heh heh.. Though I'm no professional baker. :X Just for fun bah and the experience! :P
