Ang Ku Kueh Necklace

Ang Ku Kueh Necklace

Ang Ku Kueh (aka red tortoise cakes) is a small round or oval shaped Chinese pastry with soft sticky glutinous rice flour skin wrapped around a sweet filling in the centre. It is molded to resemble a tortoise shell

In the Chinese culture, the color red is traditionally used as a symbol of joy and happiness whereas the tortoise symbolizes longevity, power and tenacity. As such, Ang Ku Kuehs are of a high cultural significance and value amongst the Chinese people.

They are typically associated with auspicious occasions and are especially prepared during birthdays and religious festivals to symbolize blessings and good fortune.

Every piece is artisanally crafted.
