Dominique Ansel's bakery in Japan features a few Instagram-worthy delights such as a hotdog bun shaped like a puppy. But few only take the cake like the Zero Gravity Chiffon. It's a sweet treat that's so light (in actual weight, not calories) that it comes floating inside a balloon.

Of course, you don't believe us so you'll have to watch the post from the pastry chef himself down below.

I suppose this makes every other party treat now pretty lame. These Zero Gravity Chiffon Cakes are exclusive to the Tokyo location of Dominque's bakery. If I were you, I think I will add this spot to my next Japan trip itinerary.

Dominique Ansel is the man behind a lot of signature pastries from his famous New York city bakery such as the Kouig Amann (a caramelized croissant which was hailed as part of the 100 best dishes of 2012), Cronut, the Cookie Shot, and Frozen S'mores.
