Would you like a cup of tea to go with that?



Yes, it's a mooncake. This 13 ton cake is over 8 metres wide and on display in a market in Shenyang, Liaoning Province, China, as part of the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations.

Workers are currently working on the other 3 mooncakes and a giant metal tin. Ironically, the miniature plastic knife that comes with the cake will actually be 10ft long. :)

The '15th day of the 8th month', as we say in Chinese, falls on September 25th this year.

Mmm. Red bean flavour for me. I like the traditional sort too (but not the yolk) :)
