La Galette Des Rois~
I was looking forward to making this cake..and made it the very simple way..with puff pastry and almond paste:)
I made the tiniest one..I used a 6 inch springform pan because well,we still have shortbread~Many French people eat it on the first Sunday after New Year's Day..others on the 6th..
I love the idea of hiding a pea, a bean..or a small toy in it..the one that finds it(you must warn your guests!)..is Queen or King for a day..I used the little baby:)
You place the little treasure on top of the paste..then the layer of puff pastry on top..I remember Lipton tea always had cute little ceramic treasures..they would be ideal! I saw some recently and never thought of my cake~
We never take the tree down before the Ephiphany has come and gone here ~
It's a tradition..this year we broke tradition and it all came tumbling down today..I miss the mini lights everywhere and the feeling of the season..It came..and went~
The little baby bears a striking resemblance to one of ours:)I could eat him up too!
