Located in downtown Vancouver’s Holt Renfrew, the Colette Grand Café and Soirette have created a special pastry for this year’s celebration.

A mooncake pop-up is presenting foodies with an unconventional take on the tasty treat. Rather than a traditional egg yolk, each cake features a macaron in the centre.

Almost too pretty to eat, a set of four will cost you $68.

Soirette’s 2018 mooncake collection is nothing short of a work of art.

Each mooncake uses a unique ingredient, utilizing flavours like jackfruit and matcha; black sesame and yuzu; peanut crunch and Thai milk tea; and black tea and Kalamansi, to name a few.

The centrepiece, an extra large mooncake, is filled with a black tea centre and Kalamansi filling, wrapped in bamboo charcoal snowskin and dusted with gold powder.

A deluxe set of eight is available for $88; a smaller set of five is available for $52.
