      I found this upon googling...


      It appears that you have to call ahead and order it. She only makes them to order

          Just looked at the pics of a galette des-rois, and it is not the same as a king cake, the theory may be the same, but that looks like no king cake I ever had growing up.

          My guess is that outside of Louisiana, it's going to be really hard to find one after January 6. Before then, however, a lot of bakeries in Manhattan carry them.

            I tried a couple years ago and no one here knew what I was talking about. You could always order from Gambinos online (gambinos.com).

              Or Randazzos.
              I would love to find one up in the NY area, and clients did not send any up to us this year.

                they've had it at the LE PAIN QUOTIDIEN chain.
