In France it’s a tradition to eat a Galette des Rois on January 6th. I bought one yesterday at Ladurée, because I know they make one of the best ones ;-)
Last night my landlord had some friends over for dinner so we had my galette des rois as dessert and I got the porcelain figure, see the photo below! Cute, no?
The cake is pretty simple, it’s made by puff pastry and almond cream and there is a fèvre (usually a figure made in porcelain) hidden in the cake. Due to the tradition one person has to go under the table and the person that cuts the cake has to ask the person under the table who shall get the piece of cake until everyone has got a piece. And the one that gets the porceain figure will be the king or queen of the day :-)
