Last Sunday, my family and I celebrated the Epiphany. The tradition consists in eating a ‘Galette des Rois’ (King cake) in celebration of the arrival of the Wise Men.
Inside the cake there is a little porcelain figurine and whoever finds it becomes the king or queen for the day (and gets to wear a pretty gold crown).
This year I decided to make the galette – speculoos & pear frangipane – myself. I also decorated the table with gold (chocolate) coins and frankincense & myrrh scented candles (representing the gifts that the Wise Men brought with them).
