For 10 years, Twinkle Lacsamana has handled marketing and public relations in the hotel industry, until the industry was halted when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. This prompted her to find an alternative way to get by during the lockdown period, and it soon led her to the conception of Milky Dust Donuts.
“When I decided that I’ll venture into selling food, I know that it’ll not be as easy as I think, and that there are no shortcuts,” shares Twinkle. “And as someone who’s been in marketing for over a decade now, I knew that I had to do something unique—something that will stand out from the endless waves of cakes, cookies, and sushi bakes.”
Lacsamana’s inspiration for her donuts was a video recipe of a Korean Twisted Donut or Kkwabaegi. She didn’t have any formal kitchen training nor has she handled a food business before, but she gave it her shot. She tweaked the recipe and recreated four variants: Ube Cheese, Classic Chocolate, Vanilla Milk, and Dark Mocha. All flavors are tucked with delectable filling and are coated with her signature “Milky Dust”.
- 1 tub of 8 donuts – Single Variant – P200, Assorted – P250
- “Mañanita” tub – 16 donuts, any variant P450
