The cakes are made of flour, sugar, bean paste as well as other materials and shaped like carp fish.
The carp-shaped cake originates from Fuzdhou, East China's Fujian Province, so it is called "local mooncake" in Fuzhou.
According to local customs, the elders, especially grandparents, will send carp-shaped cakes, which symbolize blessings and expectations from the elders, to their grandsons and granddaughters during Mid-Autumn Festival.
