Aspiring Bakers #11: Mid-Autumn Treats (September 2011) - Round Up

To all Aspiring Bakers, thank you for your fantastic and wonderful support for the Aspiring Bakers #11: Mid-Autumn Treats (September 2011). Special thanks to Small Small Baker, my fellow blogger pal all these years, for giving me the honour to host this blog event.

For the past 30 days, I have so much fun going through each entry. I am so inspired by the beautiful, handmade creations submitted by all the talented bakers out there. With their selfless sharing of recipes and useful tips, I hope this time next year, we aspiring bakers are able to bring our mooncake-making skills to greater heights. I believe the true spirit of such baking events is to learn and share our experiences with one another, don't you think so?

We received a total of 129 entries for the September event! I have grouped them into 5 different categories, according to the type of mooncakes. I am sure you will have a mouth watering time going through the list below :D

  4. Great compilation! Wow! I never knew there were so many types of mooncakes. With all these links, I now have all the help and advice I need to improve. Thanks for accepting my very amateur attempt too :D Never mind that the festival is over, I'm going to make some of those ice cream ones soon! Yum!

  5. HHB, this is a big compilation. You have done a great job. A pity my one and only creation ( meant to support you ) went very wrong and I ended having to consume all by myself. The list here sort of encouraged me to give it another try.

  14. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you prevent it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any assistance is very much appreciated.

  16. Trey, I don't have much problem with spam comments, maybe because my blog doesn't drive much traffic.
