Behold. It's the next big Instagrammable dessert.
Ice & Pan takes the traditional Japanese taiyaki — a fish-shaped cake — and turns it into a piece of art.
The eatery rolls a soft, fish-shaped cake into a makeshift waffle cone and lines it with custard or red bean paste before filling it with a swirl of soft-serve ice cream and adorning it with an array of colorful toppings such as caramel popcorn and pocky straws.
The stall opened in July inside a market at 136-37 Main St., workers said. Since then they've encouraged guests to post photos of the creative cakes to Instagram.
Each cake is first hand-baked in a special fish-shaped pan. Then, after it's cooled, it's stuffed with either custard, red bean, taro or matcha.
There are three "signature" taiyakis: uji matcha, with matcha soft-served ice cream and a strawberry; hokkaido milk, topped with mango; and charcoal sesame, made from sesame ice cream.
You can also build your own by mixing and matching stuffings, the soft-served flavor and toppings like popcorn, chocolate-covered pretzels and fruit.
They're open seven days a week from 11:30 a.m. until 10:30 p.m.
Ice & Pan, 136-37 Main St., Flushing.
