In Spain, it is not the Epiphany without The El Roscon de Los Magos, The 3 Kings Cake which is a large doughnut shaped tart glazed with glazing sugar and glazed fruits, Sultana Raisins and filled with  Candy coins, candies & figurines of the 3  Wise Men or 3 Kings.  

In France, the Gateaux des Rois, is completely different in appearance however, it is filled with a figurine and historically with beans .. 

In Italy, this holiday is called  Befana, The Good Witch, and pastries are dedicated to her, and have a similar profound historical signifcance.

Does any one here celebrate and make a special tart on this day  ?  

This year, we shall purchase a  Roscon de Reyes small tart, at our local bakery .. 

And lunch is going to be Roast Lamb, traditional  Spanish Style, and typical Spanish appetisers. 

Have a wonderful weekend.   It is back to work on the 8th here in Spain.  

*** Tas, 

Could you please bring up the Spanish  3 Kings Tart Recipe for all of us  ?

Thank you and Happy Epiphany Day ..  Have a lovely weekend.
