Chinese Wedding Cakes 中式嫁女餅


In Chinese tradition, male has to give cakes to female has part of their engagement gifts. Female in turn distribute the cakes to her friends and relatives together with an invitation card to the wedding banquet. Hence treating friends and relatives with cakes is an official announcement of a female's wedding. So if someone ask a female 'when are you treating me cakes' implies 'when are you getting married?'

There are several manufacturers. Wing Wah is one among the famous Chinese cake shops and they have a branch at the HK Airport. I remember they have one at the IFC Mall as well; more branches in Hong Kong and Kowloon. You can check their website for more information.
