Our list takes into consideration not only the appearance of the mooncakes, but also the beautiful boxes that safeguard them
Pardon us as we go against the proverb of judging a book by its cover when mooncakes are involved. Likening to precious gems in treasure troves, the presentation of mooncakes is something not to be taken lightly of when the Mid-Autumn festivities come around. From the intricate etchings on their snow-skin facades to the elaborate vessels that host them, these mooncakes have commanded our attention with their gorgeous appearances alone.

3. Awfully Chocolate Mooncake Collection ($88 per box of four)
While the ubiquitous Chinese cabinet-style mooncake box easily pleases the eye, Awfully Chocolate has won us over with its choice of using handsome bamboo chests to house their mooncakes. Even sporting a delightful clasp detail, these solid boxes are vessels for the brand’s first-ever namesake Mooncake Collection, featuring the traditionally baked variants of white lotus paste with salted egg yolk and white lotus paste with macadamia nuts, alongside modern iterations namely, chocolate brownie with melon seed and chocolate lotus paste with hazelnuts.
Available at all Awfully Chocolate outlets
