Mascot moon cake gallery

Mascot moon cakes are always fun to explore because unlike moon cakes, they are not constrain by their shapes.

This freedom and the less formal nature of mascot moon cakes gives room for many forms of expressions.

So here we list some of the common and classical ones and some quite unique ones!

Being a seasonal product, it makes collecting them more of a challenge. Have to be at the right place at the right time. Nevertheless, here is our mascot moon cake gallery.
