As the Mid-Autumn Festival approaches, the sale of traditional carp-shaped cakes enters a peak time in Fuzhou.

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.
