The Twelth Day of ChristmasSunday, January 06, 2013
This afternoon we had a Galette du Rois (King Cake) to celebrate the arrival of the three kings. E hand crafted a crown for the occasion, complete with stickers. I had been aspiring to try the recipe for years. In the absence of a silver charm, a plum stone was hidden in the pie, waiting for the day's king to find it. While the kid's weren't too fussed about the almond filling, they were delighted when Granddad found the stone and was presented with the crown.
the story about a Utah school and a "controversial" Elvis version of The Twelfth Night.
* I've used the Nigella Lawson recipe from "How to be a Domestic Goddess". Of course it was a little over the top in the sweetness department and with the filling bubbling over the tin. Next time I will halve the filling.
