Homemade Lotus Mooncake

I request my aunt to teach me how to make Mooncake.My mom told me that my aunty make good and delicious mooncake.She sell some of her own mooncake during Mooncake festival.Due to time limit,my aunty use ready make lotus paste in package but she gave me her own make filling paste recipe.Said her own make filling paste is not too sweet compare with the ready made paste.
How it's look??.The shape is not really good and prettyI don't know how to control the balance of mold yet!.I request my aunt to get me a mooncake mold and some doll biscuit mold from Kedah.

Butterfly Doll Biscuit
Oinky Doll Biscuit
Waiting conventional oven in preheat period..I don't know how to use conventional oven to set the temperature and function mode.....I keep thinking that oven is microwave!!lol!!
There is two type of mold,plastic and wooden.It's only come with two as well,round and square.I choose the square mold with wood material
A pack of lotus paste is good for 8 pieces of mooncake.I wonder...eeerrhh... do US asian store sell any lotus paste like this?.Actually the ready pack lotus paste is not really too sweet,semi sweet which I like.
I weight each paste for each moon cake..I copy down all the recipes,the dough,filling and method but don't have the time yet to arrange in proper order.I will post again the proper recipe once I go back to NY.....Stay tune for more local delicatessen photo!!

When I learned making mooncakes in the 80's we have to make our own Lotus paste and tau sar and really 'ma fun' now is so easy as you can just buy it from the cake supply shop. I don't think you can buy the lotus paste here but you can buy 'tau sar'

WoW! your mooncake looks FAB! Could you please share the lotus paste recipe? I'm really craving for that and I cant find any shop which sells them! I think it needs alkaline water, does your recipe needs that? As alkaline water is not avaliable in Australia could i subsitute with any other stuff??
