Mooncake (Quarter) v1

(Traditionally eaten during the Mid-Autumn Festival)

DesignedMay 2020
Crease PatternYes

This mooncake is supposed to be white lotus paste with double yolk flavor, hence the single round disc on one side. The outer curves, top, and bottom hold together well enough when folded from kami paper, but the yolk portion can pop out - glue or stiffer paper remedies this.

I started designing this quarter of a mooncake by taking a fourth of the crease pattern of my whole mooncake model and grafting enough paper to cover the now open sides. The hardest part of the design process was figuring out how to smoothly transition from the partial bottom twist fold to the flat sides. The current design manages to do so cleanly.
