Living With Cricket King Cake

Cricket King Cake

Cricket King Cake

Mardi Gras is Tuesday, February 28, 2017 and New Orleans prepared. The festival features parades with floats, music and exotic cuisine. A Mardi Gras favorite is king cake with its traditional purple, gold and green sprinkles. This year (2017) the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium of New Orleans will be serving “Cricket King Cake”, a traditional king cake decorated with non-traditional roasted crickets. Samples are free with general admission while supplies last.
