French King Cake and its figurine « la fève »

As it’s the beginning of a new year, we are celebrating Epiphany during January. As I was reading informations on wikipedia, I’ve discovered that there are many « King cakes » around the world with all kind of shapes and ingredients ! In France and Quebec, the King cake (« galette des rois » in French) consists of flaky puff pastry layers with a dense center of frangipane (almond) or apple. A figurine (« la fève ») is hidden in the cake and the person who finds the trinket in their slice becomes king for the day and will have to offer the next cake. For my « galette des rois », the figurine is a small painting called « Pont de Moret » painted by Alfred Sisley…

The easy cooking recipe :
– cut an orange in half
– with a knife, make the holes for the eyes and the mouth
– put the room in the dark
– use a flashlight to illuminate the orange from the inside (I just put the orange slice on top of the flashlight)
– take the picture of your glowing smiling orange
– eat the orange 
– clean the mess 🙂
