King Cake Out of Season?

Do any bakeries have king cakes outside of Mardi Gras season? Even once in a while? In their freezers?

      I did a search and there were several sites that advertised year round king cakes. Although by now the baby might be an adolescent.

        WalMart sometimes trots out king cakes for holidays like 4th of July and Memorial Day. But why a nekkid baby Jesus still appears in those cakes is beyond me...

            I've said it before and I'll say it again, king cakes should only be sold from Jan 6th until Mardi Gras. Is nothing sacred anymore?????? lol
