Rosca de Reyes


In my tradition, on three kings day is a special type of bread called the “Rosca de Reyes” also known as  “King cake” It’s very traditional in Spain and Mexico. It has dry fruit and also the same sugar as sugar bread. Something special about this is that here’s there’s a special item that represents the baby Jesus can be found inside the bread. Every year, my family and I enjoy this. I feel very blessed to share this tradition with my family and hopefully continue to pass it down.
