Although we may think of king cakes as a seasonal treat, Haydel’s Bakery on Jefferson Highway has been baking up these Carnival delicacies year-round for customers worldwide. Now run by the third generation of Haydels, the bakery serves up an estimated 60,000 king cakes a year.

Fun Fact: in 2010, Haydel’s grabbed the record for world’s largest king cake with a cake measuring 5,300 feet long and weighing in at 8,688 pounds. Now that had to be a big baby! Haydelbakery.com.
