King or Queen for a day!
The Three Kings are said to have presented their gifts to Jesus in January, on the Epiphany. In celebration of this since the Middle Ages, French people have made Galettes des Rois or King's Cake. In the north of France it's a round cake with an almond/butter filling called frangipane. Hidden inside the King's Cake is a small trinket called a fève. Whoever finds the fève is given a crown and gets to be king or queen for the day! At Tall Grass we bake a single cooked bean into the cake. Find the bean and you can wear the golden paper crown, which is included with each cake. The Tall Grass King's Cakes are available until the end of January.
Seasonal baking continues in January
Orthodox Christmas, as determined by the Julian calendar, ensures that celebrations continue into January. We can still help you with that your festive celebrations with family and friends whether you would like to add to your table, or give a sweet treat as a gift. Below is just a partial list of this year's offerings.
And remember to drop by our Wolseley and Forks bakery locations as well as our sister company, Grass Roots Prairie Kitchen, to see what's cooking, as we often come up with something new.
And should you be stumped with all of the choices, we also have gift certificates.
Continue to enjoy the baking of the season!
