Talk about having your cake and eating it too. We present to you the latest sugary treat to hit NYC. Say hello to the birthday cake croissant — AKA the best thing to happen since the cronut. The birthday cake croissant was created by chef Thiago Silva, who is famous for putting a cinnamon roll inside a donut and giving the acclaimed Dominique Ansel a run for his money.

The croissant is baked with sprinkles in the dough for a rainbow effect, and filled with a scrumptious mascarpone filling in place of buttercream. Can I get a YUM?

But per usual, the must-have treat is only available in NYC.

It’s one among several fanciful croissant varieties offered at the new bakery, one component of a gastrohall located in part of the original Barnes & Noble bookstore.

Other flavors to choose from include cookies and cream, crème brûlée, everything, green tea, ham and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, and red velvet. The bakery will also sell such baked delectables such as German pretzels and pretzel rolls.

The birthday cake croissant will soon be available at New York City’s Union Fare, and we can’t wait to try it. Now all we need is a reason to celebrate.
