After the preparation time, enjoy a slice of Galette warm from the oven!
Each participant will take away their homemade Galette!
*Traditionnally, a trinket ("fève") is hidden in the cake. The person who finds it in their slice of Galette will get a paper crown and will be King/Queen for the day. If you want to experience Galette des Rois the traditional way, make sure that the youngest person in the assembly goes under the table to name the recipient of the slices of Galette you cut; this way, the King or Queen of the day will be picked in a random and fair way!
