In Dali's villages, villagers would like to make moon cakes by themselves.

Every year three or four days before the Mid-autumn festival, Dali villagers will prepare materials for making the moon cakes.

Wheat flour, brown sugar, rapeseed oil, walnut kernel, peanut kernel, these are normal original food materials that each Dali villager would like to prepare.

People, old and young, all expect to taste the first baked moon cake which is made of materials they provide.

Therefore, moon making chefs in the villages become the busiest persons who shall make cakes to satisfy all these people's needs at the time.

All moon cakes are made in a standard size, with a width of 17 cm, and a depth of 3 cm according to the tradition.
