These mooncakes are best to be served 3 days after they are baked. Typically, these mooncakes are hard and dry when they are freshly baked, the aging time allows oil to seep in to soften the crust and to develop a glossy sheen effect. During this waiting time, you may also notice the colour of the mooncake turns a little darker.
