Nian Gao Mold- Goldfish Shaped, Round Prosperity

Nian Gao, or Chinese New Year cake, is made from glutinous rice flour.  It is now enjoyed year round but is traditionally popular during Chinese New Year.  You will hear nian gao sometimes called “rice cakes.”  It is considered good luck to eat Nian Gao during Chinese New Year because “nian gao” is a homonym for a “higher year.”  It carries the symbolism of rising higher in the coming year. 

This plastic mold will help you make auspicious and delicious nian gao with a goldfish carp embedded in the middle.  Make extras and give them away to your friends and family to wish them good luck in the coming Lunar New Year.

The molds are made with polypropylene plastic and can be used to steam nian gao.  Alternatively, it can also be used to make a large tray of jello with a pretty Asian motif.  The molds can be refrigerated.

Measures 6 inches (inner diameter) X 1.5 inches in height.

Reusable, not dishwasher safe, hand washing recommended.
