Gold Fish Crystal Mooncake..~ 金鱼水晶月饼...^0^

A fb friend (KYC) is using a very nice and cute jelly mould to make her crystal mooncake. When I saw that jelly mould I love it very much. Soooo...I start searching for them. Guess what??? I found them in a shop, left 3 pieces and in quite bad condition. I pick the two best ones and get home. Can't wait to give it a try. When I wash them I found that one of the piece of mould it leaking... :( I bring it back to the shop and hope the other one is good but it is not good. No choice I pick the other pattern for a change. Still very excited because the least I still get one. I tried it...this is the result...ta..tat...tata...

~This is the jelly mould I am using, I divide into 4 parts to assemble the mooncake skin; that is the fish eyes, fish body, weed grass and the outer skin~

To assemble the mooncake:
1) Take 2 tbsp of skin jelly mixture and add in a drop of black colour.(I used a chopstick to dip in the black colouring and then dip into the prepared 2 tbsp jelly mixture) Use a teaspoon to pour the black jelly mixture into the eye part of the gold fish mould, allow to set a while.
2) Take 10 tbsp of the mixture and add a drop of bright red colouring. Use a tablespoon to pour this mixture to the body part of the gold fish mould, allow to set.
3) Take 6 tbsp of the mixture and add a drop of green colouring. Use a teaspoon to pour this mixture to the weed grass part of the gold fish mould, allow to set.
4) Pour the plain jelly mixture into the jelly mould, about 1/2cm thick, allow it to half set.
5) Put in the filling, and cover with plain jelly mixture till fill up. Allow to set before unmould and serve.
