Celebrating Dia de Los Reyes

Celebrating Dia de Los Reyes

January 6th is a special day in the Hispanic culture. On that day, Hispanics celebrate Dia de Los Reyes, or the Epiphany. This day represents the day that the Three Wise Men came bearing gift to the baby Jesus.

Why is this important in the bakery business? Well, because along with this celebration, Hispanic families serve Rosca de Reyes, or King’s Cake. King’s Cake is well known in the United States as part of the Mardi Gras celebration. For those celebrating Dia de Los Reyes, it doesn’t wait until then to make its appearance. It is an important element to the family celebration. This is what brings everyone together in remembrance of the true meaning of Christmas.

Dia de Los Reyes Traditions

The celebration of the Epiphany, or Dia de Los Reyes, is extremely important in Hispanic culture. Part of the celebration includes the Rosca de Reyes, a celebration of the Three Wise Men and also the baby Jesus. Rosca means “wreath” and Reyes means “kings”. The shape of the cake is symbolic of a crown, as it is shaped like an oval. The plastic baby inside the cake represents the baby Jesus, and whoever is served the piece of cake containing the baby must host a party in February to celebrate Dia de la Candelaria. This day brings the official close to the holiday season.

BakeMark Celebrates Day of the Dead

Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday celebrated annually in the Mexican culture. This day is not to mourn over the dead, but rather to celebrate those people who have passed on. What better way to celebrate than with food which is a large part of this yearly celebration.

Day of the Dead baking traditions

One of the most widely known symbols of Dia de los Muertos is the sugar skull, a candy shared in celebration of the holiday. Another tradition for this celebration is Pan de Muerto, otherwise known as the Bread of the Dead. Traditionally, Pan de Muerto is decorated with bone like dough pieces on top. This is a sweet bread with many varieties using different colors and designs. But whatever twist you decide to put on it, the traditional bread is one that certainly appeals to the masses.  

With the help of BakeMark’s Trigal Dorado line, we’ll have you baking up Pan de Muerto in no time. You’ll be helping your customers celebrate this special and traditional holiday in no time! It’s as easy as adding water, yeast and margarine to the mixes and popping them into the oven. With the demand you will have, this time saving mix will deliver consistent, quality, authentic Pan de Muerto.

We have an array of traditional Hispanic bread mixes to choose from. From bizcocho to mantecadas, all of these delicious treats will have your customers smiling with delight. They can now purchase any traditional holiday baked goods directly from you.
