Galette des rois

My first week in Paris

Sunday I made chocolate macarons and a galette des rois(king cake) with my neighbor. Both my neighbors don’t really like to eat pastry so I was forced to bring the whole galette home. The galette is eaten at the beginning of the year until fasting. In the cake there is a hidden object. If you eat the piece with that object, you are king of the day and get to wear a crown.
