    Roscon de Reyes (King’s Ring) is a sweetened brioche style dough, decorated with glazed fruits and typically served on the 6th of January, when Spain celebrates el Dia de los Reyes (King’s Day).El Dia de los Reyes is also the day when children in Spain receive their Christmas presents, following the tradition of the Epiphany, a religious day in Christianity that celebrates the arrival of the three wise men to witness the birth of baby Jesus. Traditionally, a small figurine of the baby Jesus is hidden in the Roscon to represent Jesus fleeing King Herod’s evil plan to kill all babies that could be the messiah. Nowadays, a dry broad bean is also added alongside the figurine. The tradition says that whoever finds the baby Jesus is crowned the ‘king’ or ‘queen’ of the banquet, whereas whoever finds the broad bean will need to buy the following year’s Roscon de Reyes.
