We are very pleased to serve HCMC Consulate General of France. Your compliment has added a great motivation for us to continue to bring more and more products with authentic French flavor to customers in Vietnam.
This delicious almond filled pastry is eaten on January 6th in honor of Epiphany (Twelfth Night) which marks the arrival of the three wise men (kings) in Bethlehem to deliver gifts to the baby Jesus. The lucky charm hidden inside king cakes today is a nod to this story.
The family tradition is to have the youngest in the family placed under the table to name the recipient of the next slice to ensure fairness. Whoever finds the lucky charm becomes King or Queen for the evening and gets to choose his/her Queen or King and they both get to wear a crown.
King Cake is available at Annam Gourmet with tempting flavor such as almond, banana coconut and apple.
