Roscón de Reyes

Breakfast is a special occasion on the Three Kings day,  January 6th with the Three Kings’ Cake ( Roscón de Reyes) the centre of attention. This is a sweet bread that is adorned with dried fruits and sugar. Inside, bakers have hidden a small prize wrapped in paper as well as a bean. The one who finds the lucky prize is supposed to be King or Queen for the day (a gold paper crown is often provided with the cake) while he who ends up with the unlucky bean is expected to pay for next years Kings’ Cake – and considering that some of these cakes go for about 20 times the price of a loaf of regular, unsweetened bread (if you buy at a bakery instead of the supermarket), that could be an unhappy lot. Sharing is caring and the Three Kings’ Cake ( Roscón de Reyes) brings a lot of joy to families and friends all over Spain.
