King Cake Gives New Meaning to "Fat" Tuesday

Happy Fat Tuesday, Chow Bella-ites! While other Mardi Gras revelers are thinking about beads, boobs and margaritas, we know those of you who are more food-centric are wondering what kind of crazy Mardi Gras concoctions you can get for the holiday. While searching the decadent blog archives at CakeSpythis popped up. 

Ok, but then you have to order, pay shipping and wait for your king cake kit to arrive via UPS. Sigh. But wait.... 

There's a local alternative! Barb's Bakery at 2929 N. 24th St. in Phoenix is taking orders for king cakes. You won't get one today, but order now and in a few days you'll have a cream cheese stuffed ring of doughy goodness, complete with sparkly topping. The best part? It's only $14.95. Definitely cause for celebration -- as if you needed an excuse.
