The more egg yolks in the moon cake, the more expensive it is and more prestigious when present them as presents to relatives.

Since mooncakes are usually bought as gifts.

You'll also notice that over the years, most of them are being sold in more and more fancy boxes with colorful and sometimes really extravagant packaging.

The problem with this is that the production costs will be higher.
