The Making of Moon Cakes

“When i was a child, i thought,
the moon was a banana…”

Sushil Singh, व्यस्त लोगों के लिये ध्यान


How we see the world depends on who we are, and changes as each of us shifts through life.

“When i was a child, i thought,
the moon was a banana,
the full moon was a big cake.
when i was a child,
i never saw the moon;
i only saw what i wanted to see.
and now i see the moon.
it’s only the moon.”

Here at POP-UP BEIJING, we’ve gathered a collection of hand-carved vintage Chinese moon cake and sweet moulds. Whether you envisage the possibility of a delicious moon cake, or merely see the shadow of the moon (or birds, fish and fruit!) in the wooden outline of these rustic beauties; we encourage you to enjoy them for both their decorative beauty, and their potential to shape traditional edible wonders!
