Mooncake is a traditional Chinese cake. Mooncake is a Chinese bakery product traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The festival is for lunar worship and moon watching, when mooncakes are regarded as an indispensable delicacy. Not just on Mid-Autumn Festival, this cake can be eaten when Chinese New Year’s too. Mooncakes are offered between friends or on family gatherings while celebrating the festival.
