The Golden Donut is filled with an ube mousse and a Cristal gelée, covered in a Cristal icing, dusted with 24-carat gold dust and hand-gilded with 24K gold leaf.
Each donut is handmade by Bjorn DelaCruz, Manila Social Club's executive chef. They will also offer a donut bar of ube, gin-calamansi and buko pandan donuts.
A limited number of Golden Cristal Donuts can be pre-ordered and picked up at the festival.
