Original Cookie Sticks

Marc and Tricia Castrodes have been producing classic baked
products out of their home in Marikina Valley Philippines for many
years now. In 2008, as the demand for their products grew, they
established a community-based commissary in the property next to
their home. From art cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and artisan
breads now comes a fresh take on cookie classics – Cookie Sticks.
