To celebrate Epiphany, which fell on the 6th of January, we purchased a galette des Rois (Kings’ cake) from Morange, a bakery in our neighborhood.
The cake, which cost 8€, measured about 6” in diameter and had crispy puff-pastry layers filled with dense, semi-sweet frangipane.
The surprise came when I found a fève (a porcelain charm in the shape of a duck) hidden in my portion of the cake. According to tradition, the person whose slice contains the fève is King for the day. I briefly wore the paper crown, whose circumference, however, was not large enough to fit my big head!
