12 Desserts By the World's Best Pastry Chef That You Can Only Find in Tokyo
Step one: Go to Japan. Step two: Get in line for these desserts.

Dominique Ansel, who was just named the world's best pastry chef, recently opened a new bakery in Tokyo's Ginza district that offers a host of brand-new pastries that you can only find in Japan.

Good luck trying to find the Zero Gravity Chiffon Cake at the original New York City location. Exclusive to the new bakery located at Mitsukoshi Ginza, this cake is so light it can be floated inside a balloon. To eat it, you have to pop the balloon and get sprinkled with confetti first, which is how I want to eat all cake from here on out.

Just watch this magic:

The new Ginza location is also the only place in the world where you can find the Square Watermelon Cake, a riff on Japan's wildly-expensive square watermelons, that's filled with pistachio and raspberry mousse, watermelon lime gelée, pistachio biscuit and pistachio feuilletine.

And that's not it. The Pull Apart Flower Cookie, Roasted Hot Dog Bun and a gorgeous marble cake filled with cherry jam, kirsch vanilla cream and dark chocolate are exclusive to the Ginza location as well.

They also serve a matcha-flavored babka there too. Drool.

Jealous, yet? Those aren't the only Dominique Ansel creations you can only find in Japan either. The bakery's other Tokyo location, which opened in 2015, serves special limited-edition Cronut flavors like violet lychee, sakura rooibos tea and rose guava.

You can also find other Japan-only treats at the original Tokyo location like the Paris-Tokyo choux pastry filled with matcha ganache and passion fruit curd and religieuse inspired by Japanese mythological creatures.

So who's flying to Tokyo soon?
