Thousands Layer Yam Pastry Mooncake (Baked)

This kind of pastry is also called as 'Teochew Mooncake' or 'Thousands Layer Pastry'. As you can clearly see from this picture layer by layer the pastry are formed, such a fantastic artwork in bakery. And that is how the name 'Thousands Layer Pastry' was formed! Believe it or not? I'm made all these....ho ho ho.....Jolly good!

50gm shortening
100gm water
1/2 tbsp sugar

Yeap, I'm made these! All of them! I have yam paste in the purple colour pastry and pandan lotus paste in the green colour pastry.

Now, this is my piece of artwork that I'm going to frame up....ha ha! Of coz, it's not as beautiful as Mona lisa! ha ha ha...... But it's MINE for sure!
