Finally I have managed to find a shop that is selling wooden moulds that are used for making mooncakes, angku and other local delicacies (kuih).
The shop is located in Petaling Street area:
Note: If it is not convenient for you to visit Petaling Street in KL, I have also seen these moulds being sold by HOI (House of Ingredients) and BenMart in Kepong. Surprisingly there are a lot of choices available.
The mooncake moulds being sold are also reasonably priced (RM49.90 if not mistaken):
The shop also sell the steel that is used to make kuih ros.
Note: For ingredients to make mooncake, you can get from Chai Huat Hin (known locally as Choy Fatt Hin) which is located next door to this shop. Everything you need to make mooncake can be brought from the same street 🙂
However, as mentioned in my previous article, wooden mooncake moulds are getting extinct because this used to be the trade of the older generation. Therefore do give the shop a call first before making the trip to town to ensure there is stock available before you buy:
