Chinese baker creates incredibly elaborate dragon-shaped pastry for upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival

A Chinese baker made this elaborate dragon-shaped pastry for the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival in southern China's Foshan city on September 11.

The video shows the talented pastry maker named Zhou Litian shaping the dough to create a dragon and baking it in the oven, forming a traditional pastry known as Gong Zai Bing for the Mid-Autumn Festival.

In another clip, the completed dragon-shaped pastry, complete with tongue, talons and tail, was showed off for the camera, alongside a handmade pig-shaped pastry, a centipede, a fish, a rooster and a horse.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is a harvest festival celebrated in China and Vietnam on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar.

People usually eat mooncakes, a traditional pastry, on that day.

Zhou described his Gong Zai Bing creation as "cute" and hopes it will one day qualify for UNESCO's intangible cultural heritage status.
