Only in Louisiana

Only in Louisiana will you find us having Mardi Gras King Cake and a cup of Community coffee for breakfast.

Mardi Gras parades are still a few weeks away.  We didn't have the urge to deal with the chaos last year so we didn't go to a single parade. Valerie is marching in a few of them for the first time, so I'll definitely be going to one or two this year.  Then, Mardi Gras week the band is doing something really fun -- marching in Magic Kingdom at Disney World!!


  1. How fun to march at Disney World. Certainly something for the memory books! Not sure I would like the cake if it is too sweet, but would have to try at least a bite :)


  2. Do you have a place that sells really good Mardi Gras cakes online?
    I'd love to get an actual cake for our little celebration here!!!
    And DisneyWorld???

    1. Oh there are LOTS! Our absolute favorite is:

      The one pictured came from a locally owned store:

      If you want one from New Orleans, look up Haydel's Bakery, Randazzo's, or Gambino's.

    2. Thank you!!!!!!!!

  3. Yay for Disney!
    Cake for breakfast? Sign me up.

  4. I would love to have a piece of that Mardi Gras King Cake! Looks amazing!
