Rosca de Reyes ~ Melanie Navarro

In some Spanish cultures it is tradition to make a "Rosca de Reyes" or (king's cake) for the holiday season. It is traditionally eaten on January 6, during the celebration of the "Día de Reyes" (Wise Men Day). In most of Spain, Mexico, and sometimes Hispanic communities in the United States, this is the day when children get presents from the Three Wise Men (not from Santa). They leave a shoe outside, filled with hay or dried grass for the animals the Kings ride, before they go to bed along with a note. The Mexican “Rosca de Reyes” has an oval shape. For decoration, Mexican people use dried and candied fruits like figs, quinces or cherries to decorate it.
