Interestingly enough I got the idea from Dora. Yes, Dora, as in Dora the Explorer. Today is Three Kings Day and go figure I didn’t really know what it was, I guessed it was about the Epiphany, so I googled. Earlier this week I posted that my kids and I were doing a special project with each other, boy and I are making a field journal of plants and animals; girl and I are cooking. We decided one project per week, so today girl and I made Rosca de Reyes or Three Kings Cake. I hope you like pictures!! We took a ton, and even though I am a bit of a perfectionist, I think i did a good job letting her do most of the work and showing her how to bake some bread, yes I said bread, I know it’s a Three Kings Cake, however it is a bread recipe of sorts. After deciding on the project while she was in school, I needed to find a recipe. I posted a cry for help on Facebook because apparently google didn’t like my recipe search for Roscas de Reyes at all. Thanks @Sue for the help!! 🙂
I went with this recipe mainly because it looked much simpler for girl to follow; she is only 6 you know. We did omit the anise and candied fruits and such, my munchkins won’t eat them, instead we frosted the cake with some cream cheese frosting and munchkins topped it with some very festive sprinkles. I know, it’s not totally traditional, but hey I can claim my Mexican heritage now and again and daggone it, that’s how we make our Rosca de Reyes in this house. On to the pictures!
