Village Baking Company Offering Galette des Rois

DSC05138by Steven Doyle

Village Baking Company is making their own special version of the King Cake. This will not resemble the Gulf Coast cake that is a  ring of twisted brioche topped with purple, green, and gold colored icing. Instead the Village cake is the more traditional and less garish Galette des Rois.   

The Galette des Rois is a supple cake made with puff pastry and a frangipane (almond flavored custard) filling. Originally the cake included a hidden bean that designated the finder as king for the day. Now it is traditional to find a plastic baby, but Village makes theirs more interesting by hiding a French macaron.

You can order your King Cake or stumble into Village Baking Company in hopes of nabbing one of just a few baked each day.  Laissez les bons temps rouler!
