End the Christmas season on a sweet note! Epiphany Eve, also known as Twelfth Night or Three Kings' Day, is a feast day in January steeped in history and celebrated in many cultures. Part of this holiday's tradition is the making of an "Epiphany Cake." In France, it's also called a "galette des Rois," or Kings' Cake. In the layers of puff pastry is hidden a bean. Whoever finds the bean in his piece of cake is crowned King for the day! As part of those royal "duties" he, or she, can be the one to give out the presents or party favors to all the kids, choose music or the games to be played, or simply wear his crown with pride. Some traditions grant the king one wish. This fun baking (and eating!) activity will get your child into the spirit of this holiday.
