Today is Epiphany, so when I saw these King's Cakes by the checkout at the Ecomarche this morning, I decided to treat myself to one. I think I'm supposed to wear the gold paper crown, but I was pretty sure that the dogs would laugh at me (I know Sam would!) so I decided to ring the cake with it instead. As King's Cakes go, this one was very simple....a brioche-type cake, a shiny glaze of butter and sprinkles of sugar chunks with an occasional glaced cherry. Hey, guess what....I found la feve in my piece...well, my second piece.  He looks like a little drummer boy to me. Finding him makes me King for the day! Maybe I need to re-think that paper crown?

  1. I love that tradition. I should get a King Cake for the kids this year ... we haven't done it for a while.
