300 kg “king of moon cakes” served in SW China

A moon cake weighing 300 kg was served ahead of the Mid-Autumn Festival in Chengdu in southwest China’s Sichuan Province.
It was 1.4 meters in diameter. 12 chefs worked for a day and a half to bake it. Several types of nuts and candy were used to prepare the filling.
Making and exchanging moon cakes is a hallmark tradition of China’s Mid-Autumn Festival, which falls on the 15th day of the eighth Chinese lunar month.
