Three Kings day

In Spain, January 6th is as important as Christmas day, is the day kids receive their gifts that the three magic kings bring. It is amazing how much kids loved them, and wait for them anxiously as many of us do with Santa, but in this case, as there are three, Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar every kid has a favourite. Have you ever think of them? and even choose your favourite? I don´t but maybe I will for next year`s!!!!

What to eat to celebrate the Kings?? Rosco de Reyes, that´s the tradition, round brioche bread scented with Orange-Flower water filled with whipped cream and decorated with sugared fruit, sounds good, but the best part is the hidden secret, yes! it has inside a tiny figure resemble one of the Kings, and the person that gets it in his piece of cake is the one that has to buy the Rosco for next year`s celebration. This year I was the "lucky" one, check it out..
