Epiphany Celebration with CakeEpiphany Celebration - cake

Everyone loves Cake! There is a wonderful Epiphany tradition that involves a “Kings Cake”. This could be a fun way to introduce Epiphany in your homes.
The special cake has a crown on top and a hidden “bean” inside. The finder of the bean gets to be King for the day, deciding the families activities.

Check out “Rhythm of the Home” for ideas, including a recipe for the Kings Cake.
