We should mention these aren’t just any Cronuts. To make the pastries Valentine-appropriate, Ansel covers them with cherry blossom ganache and citrus sugar, and fills them with sour cherry jam.
Ansel tells First We Feast, “We do a new flavor every month, and for February it always gets a little more sentimental and pink. I love the taste of Cherry Blossom—it’s subtle and floral, and a perfect match with the tartness and sharpness of sour Cherry.”

About the design, Ursit says,
“I remember hearing that Chef Ansel wanted to give something to his fans that would last forever. When you eat a Cronut, the moment passes. So I created a brass Cronut flake in a glass vial. I didn’t want it to look too simple. I added some Cronut texture to the top cap and I made the whole thing smaller. All of a sudden, it became this sexy little thing.”
