Roscon de Reyes

Roscon de Reyes

Today the three kings visit babay Jesus and bring presents for all good children (and coal for the naughty ones). There’s also a tradition of eating a ring-shaped cake called roscon</

There’s a Canarian version, something like a light fruitcake, but this year we tried the one from mainland Spain with a custardy filling. They come with two srprises, rather like the charms in an English Christmas pudding. My husband got the little ceramic king, which means he was King for what was left of the day – the box comes with a convinient crown in gold cardboard. And I got the bean, which means I’m supposed to pay for it.
