Oh, Cronut. We remember when the famous dessert hybrid was but a (literal) bun in the oven. It's hard to believe that Dominique Ansel's genius creation just turned three years old! And yet people are still getting up in the wee hours of the morning to wait outside Ansel's SoHo, N.Y.C. bakery in the hopes of scoring one of those sweet, sweet croissant-doughnut confections. What 3-year-olds do you know that have a cult following?

If you haven't yet sampled the cream-filled delight, head over to the shop to try this month's flavor: a rhubarb brown sugar pastry with lemon thyme sugar. Happy birthday, indeed.
