This year, I decided to add one more fun tradition and celebrate the Epiphany with a "king cake."
By this time, we are feeling a little void of all of the Christmas excitement.
The decorations are put away.
It feels a little empty, even though Jan. 6th is officially the end of the 12 days of Christmas.
This was a nice way to bring a beautiful season to a close.
According to Wikipedia,
"The "king cake" takes its name from the biblical three kings. Catholic tradition states that their journey to Bethlehem took five days (the Twelve Days of Christmas), and that they arrived to honor the Christ Child on Epiphany. The season for king cake extends from the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas (Twelfth Night and Epiphany Day), through to Mardi Gras day.
If you would like to make one, my recipe is from HERE.
There are many different recipes for the cake!
My friend Anne-Marie was planning on making a beautiful French version with a lovely puff pastry crust:).
Hope you all have a fantastic and restful weekend!
