On the 15thday of the 8thlunar month, Li Jing returned triumphantly. A trader from Tibet offered some round cakes to LiShimintocongratulate him on his victory. LiShiminwas very happy to receive this gift and the round cakes became popular in the palace and among the folk. People ate the round cakes on the 15thday of the 8thlunar month and the name of the cake was changed to 'Moon Cake' during the reign of a later Tang emperor.Moon Cake is used in a Chinese custom of worshiping the moon. The Mid-Autumn moon is round and moon cakes are fragrant and sweet.
