Rosca de Reyes

Rosca de Reyes, The Celebratory Pastry in January!

The Holiday Season is about family and food. Beginning on Thanksgiving Thursday and one might think ending New Year’s Day, but there is more. Three Kings Day is January 6th. This might also be known to some as Epiphany. It is a Hispanic tradition to celebrate this occasion with a Rosca de Reyes. Which if translated to English would be “Kings’ Wreath”. Based on the shape the the vibrant colors, this all but makes sense. These festivities also have a fun surprise that goes along with eating of the Rosca. A small figurine of a baby is baked inside, and as the wreath is cut, the individual who finds the plastic baby, bring tamales at the next gathering. YES! another holiday that extends the season, which is in February, when people gather for Día de Candelaria.
