Roscón de Reyes: King’s Cake.

Tradition is that today families eat the king’s cake, which has a lucky figure inside which crowns you king if you get it in your piece. Today with my French & American friends we tried both the French version, which is more like a flat almond pastry, and the Spanish version, which you see above. (Last year I brought the Mexican version for my students, who also put out their shoes for the kings to fill with gifts.)
