Wink in Beasts of the Southern Wild is a professional baker

Great video story in the NYT about Dwight Henry, the actor who played Wink in Beasts of the Southern Wild. He's a professional baker in New Orleans and owns a doughnut shop called the Buttermilk Drop. Very cool.

Reportedly, he's opening a second location....in Harlem.  His king cakes are tasty.  I haven't sampled any of his other items.
