Mid-Autumn Traditional Wooden motif mooncake mould 3-in-1
This a stunning hand crafted mould with 3 cavities (leaf & floral motifs). Great for glutinous rice flour cake, mooncake or other oriental pastries.
Mould is made from dense quality wood. It has tight grain surfaces making it easy to dry after washing and won't harbor bacteria like porous wood moulds and utensils. They don't stain or retain as much odors like softer wooden tools.

2. Dust mold heavily with flour before the first use; dust lightly before each molding. Shake off excess flour.
