Think you have the dainty, adorable, whimsical pastry market on lock, Tokyo? Well, Dominique Ansel is about to school you on exactly how to make the cutest, most delicate, delicious baked goods around. On Saturday, June 20, the creator of the Cronut will open Dominique Ansel Bakery Tokyo—his first-ever location outside the US. The shop will offer many of Ansel’s celebrated signatures like the Cronut, the DKA and the cookie shot. But it will also feature some items exclusive to Tokyo. Here, a first look at the Tokyo-only pastries Ansel will sell at his newest shop.
