  17. Prepare a large baking sheet and place a piece of parchment paper on top. This is for placing the mooncakes after stamping with the mold..

  27. Take the mooncakes out and let them cool down for 5 mins. Keep the oven at 450°F..
  28. Add a tiny bit of dark soy sauce into the remainder of the egg wash. Use a small, clean paint brush to brush the egg wash onto the pattern of the mooncake surface. No need to brush the sides. This is to highlight the pattern for it to stand out more..
  29. Bake the mooncakes at 450°F for another 6 mins..
  30. Mix 1 tsp of honey with some hot water in a small bowl. Brush the warm mooncakes with the honey glaze..

  32. Storage: I suggest placing the mooncakes into the fridge if you can't finish them all within 3 days. For a slightly crunchy crust on following days, reheat and toast the mooncakes for a few minutes before serving..
