The newest Dominique Ansel Bakery location in Japan serves a range of spectacular treats, including floating cakes that are served in quite a theatrical manner.
The Zero Gravity Chiffon Cake is so light, it is served inside of balloons that remain upright in the air. To access one of the featherlight bakery treats, consumers are given a pin to pop the balloon and release the cake, which is protected by a plastic sheath. Because the cake's protective cover is attached to the string of the balloon, it does not go flying once popped, and remains securely in one's hand.
After opening his first bakery store in the Omotesando district of Tokyo, Japan, Dominique Ansel recently opened the doors to his second store in Japan in Ginza, where this showpiece dessert is served.
