Mardi Gras means a few things…beads, parades and…king cakes. From now until Mardi Gras, we’re on a mission to find the best king cake in Acadiana. So it’s time for a hunt! I’m looking for our most unique king cake. This 5-part series will take you from one side of Lafayette to another looking for the scoop on your favorite seasonal treats.

How's your new years resolution working out? Lost a few L-B's yet? If not, don't sweat it. The folks over at the Great Harvest Bread Company can help. We all know you are going to try to knock back a few chunks of king cake in the next few days preparing for Mardi Gras, so why not enjoy one that's semi-healthy?

At GHBC, they're making king cakes out of 100% whole wheat. They even have a mill in their bakery. At 4:00 a.m., YOUR king cake is in the back room, waiting to transform from wheat stalks to the oven. They're making them FRESH, everyday.
