Galette des Rois

A Galette des Rois is the traditional dessert for the Feast of the Epiphany. According to tradition, a porcelain figurine is hidden in the cake. The person who finds the figurine in their serving of dessert is declared king for the day. In the U.S., this tradition is more closely associated with Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans.

This beautiful Galette des Rois was made by Vanille, an authentic French patisserie in Chicago.
