Dominique Ansel Bakery’s new desserts are travel-themed – Time Out

Although travel is once again more common than it was two years ago, it’s complicated. Tickets are expensive, hubs are chaotic and the stakes fly much higher than airplane food jokes ever did. So, even if you can book a trip on a whim, pleasure can feel like business. One sweet solution is to take an adventure through the wonderful world of baked goods instead. 

Today, Friday, June 3, NYC’s famed Dominique Ansel Bakery, known all over the globe for its trompe-l’œil desserts, releases its “Around the World” pastry collection, created to evoke destinations near and far. 

We’ve all missed traveling over the past two years and are excited the world’s opening up again, so we wanted to pay tribute to some of our favorite food destinations worldwide,” a press release reads. 

The new line includes six realistic interpretations of foods inspired by varied locales rendered in all manner of magnificent ingredients. The collection is only available at Dominique Ansel Bakery in Soho until July 21. See the full list of goodies below.
