Cronut inventor/pastry wizard Dominque Ansel is at it again: The pastry chef revealed his latest creation, the Waffogato, via Instagram. A rep for his New York City bakery explains the dessert features vanilla ice cream with tapioca balls and "bits of Belgian waffle mixed inside" shaped as a waffle topped with a pinch of salt. A maple syrup espresso is poured on top just like a traditional affogato. The Waffogato will debut tonight at the Taste of the Nation charity fundraiser in NYC, the event for which it was specifically created. It's already made its first television appearance on the Wendy Williams Show and will be available at Ansel's bakery May 9, just in time for Mother's Day. Here's video:
