So I know I'm one week late, but since I noticed the evident lack of topics on the epiphany's goodnesses, I thought I would ask you a few questions...

Do you guys make anything special for the epiphany? At my house, we make both galette des rois and couronne briochée.

Do you have a favourite?

The galette des rois consists in a rich almond and pastry cream filling called frangipane enclosed into two sheets of puff pastry.

The couronne briochée, more popular in the south of France is more like a simple brioche, shaped into a couronne [wreath] and decorated with coarse sugar and candied fruits.
