Virtual Galette des Rois Class ✩

Galette des Rois is a special cake made in France only in January to celebrate Epiphany. You might also know it as King’s Cake! In the South of France you’ll find the brioche-style King’s Cakes with colorful icing, but elsewhere, a puff pastry and almond cream cake reign! A crispy puff pastry layer encases a divine almond and rum filling (you can nix the rum for vanilla if you want!).

We’ll make a simple version of puff pastry without all the fuss of a butter block, but with the same crisp flaky layers as the traditional version. After making a delicious almond cream filling, it’s on to assembly and decoration! There are lots of different styles for the top. I’ll send out pictures of a few so you can decide what you’d like to do in the class.

I’ll talk about the tradition of how to eat this cake, and if you want to partake, seek out a little figurine to bake inside. As whoever finds it is the King or Queen for the day!

*This class is held on Epiphany. The day when this is traditionally eaten, but nowadays the French enjoy it all month long!
