Longevity Peach Buns

The banquet will not be complete without desserts.  This banquet menu actually includes three desserts but I only feature this very special one here–“longevity peach buns“.  Inside the buns are lotus paste.  The buns are in the shape of a peach, which represents longevity.   Usually, if requested, bigger restaurants will provide this special desserts for the celebration of birthdays.  Sometimes for big celebration and for the older old, they will present a very big longevity peach bun.  This longevity peach bun is a favorite dessert of the kids although it is usually made to celebrate the birthday of the elderly.

Would you make this at home?  I doubt it.  I have not met anyone that would make this type of bun at home.  However, if you want to try, check out this post in another blog which is quite interesting.
