Dominique Ansel, the prolific cronut creator, isn't stopping at a chocolate-chip-cookie milk "shot" this spring. Tomorrow, he's rolling out a new menu featuring these eight tantalizing creations—like the adorable panda religieuse, pictured above, which is a classic French two-tiered cream puff dressed up like a panda and filled with jasmine yuzu cream. Because of course!

The madcap chef, who just took home a Time Out Food & Drink Award for his world-famous cronut, will unveil these new desserts at his Soho bakery tomorrow. Take a look at what's going to be available, and let us know which one you're most excited about.

"Lime Me Up" Tart: an interactive key lime juniper tart that comes with a mixture of Maldon sea salt and sugar for people to sprinkle into a crease in the center of the tart; squeeze a fresh lime wedge over to form a type of sauce for the tart.

"Blushing Rose" Pomegranate Tart: pomegranate gelee petals cover a soft Tahitian vanilla cream and is glazed with poppyseeds; the playful twist to this tart is that there is a crystallized rose petal on top and a dripper filled with rose water syrup; simply squeeze the syrup onto the petal until it turns from white to red and then the tart is ready to eat.

The Garden: a Valhrona milk chocolate mousse over a moist brownie base, topped with feulletine wafer "soil" and a bit of fresh mint infused gelee, with a baby mint sprig and chocolate lady bug on top.
