hi cindy - i just bought a mini one for myself so I am *guaranteed* to be the queen! :-)

sam

that looks so scrumptious. I wish I'd remembered to try and make one this year.
364 days until i have another excuse, huh?

I have never actually tried a Galette des Rois, but it is on my list of items to bake one day.

Thanks for sharing!

Yum, yum! I wish galette des rois was as easy to find here. I am not sure King Cake a la cajenne is quite the same thing. (We can't really get that here, either.)

To muddy the waters of the title, "Theophany" is an alternate name for the Feast of the Epiphany (and, indeed, the term the Orthodox usually use). "Epiphany" is a term for a relevation or manifestation (our church program said "The Manifestation of Christ to the Nations" ... e.g. everyone but the Jews, who got Him first), and "Theophany" specifically for a divine manifestation. I seem to recall that "Theophanie" was given occasionally as a name in the Middle Ages and later, and you can see Tiffany from there.

By most accounts the Magi took more than 12 days to arrive ... I'm sure they would have appreciated a piece of almond filled cake when they finally got there!
