Momomaniacs can now go straight to the source for Christina Tosi's whimsical desserts. The pastry maven converted a former storage room of her 11,000-square-foot Williamsburg commissary into a storefront. Early-adopter types can preview products still in development, while the risk-averse can dig into the outfit's signature goodies, including Crack Pie, Compost Cookies and cake truffles.
