let them eat cake

We've been having the perfect excuse lately to eat cake!
In France around Epiphany, from the beginning of January in every boulangerie, you'll find Galettes des Rois. They come in 2 kinds.
The first is a brioche ring with glaced fruit and sugar on top and the second is a frangipane (an almond like paste) tarte.

Each cake has a lucky charm (une fève) inside. The person who finds the charm gets to wear a golden crown and choose their king or queen!
