About Raffles Hotel Mooncakes
Created to honour the Moon Goddess of Immortality, Chang’e, Mooncakes are a popular food consumed at the Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Moon Festival. This festival is typically celebrated in Singapore, China, Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia.
The festival takes place on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, during the full moon. Raffles Hotel have become known for their handcrafted mooncakes made from the finest ingredients and are enjoyed by families and loved ones as they celebrate peace, harmony and prosperity during the Mid-Autumn Festival each year. Raffles Mooncakes are ideal gifts for family, friends, co-workers and even clients.
In 2018, the Raffles Hotel underwent significant renovations all the while still providing its customers with the most delicious Mooncakes. After the renovations, 2019 is set to be a big year for them and we expect some exceptional new flavours from Raffles.
The Product Selection
There are two selections of Mooncakes to choose from at Raffles, namely the Snow Skin Selection and the Traditionally Baked Classics. Both selections have become very popular in recent years.
The Snow Skin Selection
The Snow Skin Selection is comprised of a combination of favourites that have proven to be popular amongst their customers over the years. Some have even called them legendary, attesting to the taste and quality of the Raffles Mooncakes. This selection includes an Earl Grey Tea and Pearl Snow Skin Mooncake, a Cognac Truffle Snow Skin Mooncake as well as the new Signature Champagne Truffle Snow Skin Mooncake which has proven to be quite the hit!
Their Snow Skin Mooncakes can be described as luxurious, delectably smooth and irresistibly fragrant. What more could you want to enjoy with a glass of bubbly celebrating the Mid-Autumn Festival? Last year’s new addition to the selection was a much-loved Acai Berry and Chia Seeds Snow Skin Mooncake.
The Traditionally Baked Classics Selection
This more traditional selection of Mooncakes is a must-have for your Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations to bind with your loved ones. They also make great gifts, which Raffles will package up for you in a beautiful azure blue box decorated with chinoiserie floral designs.
The perfect gift to celebrate abundance while admiring the full moon. Every year, the all-time favourite Mooncake for Raffles has got to be their Double Yolk with Macadamia Nuts and White Lotus Paste Mooncake.
If you want to indulge during the Festival, their Mother-of-Pearl with Single Yolk and White Lotus Paste Mooncake is a must try. On the other hand, if you are trying to be a little more health conscious go for the Pine Nut, Macadamia Nut and White Lotus Paste Mooncake.
Variety of Products
Although the selection of mooncakes at Raffles is not that extensive, the flavours that they do offer are incredible. Each flavour profile has been specially selected to create a mooncake experience that you are sure to remember for many Mid-Autumn Festivals to come.
Every year they introduce a new, limited edition flavour to their selection to keep things interesting. Raffles Mooncakes sell out very quickly every year, so be sure to place your order in good time to avoid missing out on these decadent celebration cakes.
Raffles Hotel holds their customer service in very high regard and strive to provide the most delectable mooncakes each year for their customers. Pre-season orders open early each year to ensure that they can serve as many customers as they can for the annual festival. Look out for pre-orders opening around July!
Raffles offers a delivery service for their mooncake orders however; it is limited and books up quickly every year. It is advised that you book well in advance if you would like delivery directly from them. Otherwise, they do offer a self-collection option for you to collect directly from one of their two collection points in Singapore.
For Raffles Delectable Snow Skin Mooncakes selection, the prices range from S$ 72 to S$ 76 for a box of eight pieces. Their Treasured Baked Mooncakes are priced at S$ 72 to S$ 76 for a box of 4 pieces. There are a range of special offers available at Raffles which include unique online specials, discount for DBS, UOB and Citibank cardholders as well as corporate orders.
