Celebrating King's Day with Rosca De Reyes

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Expect a lot of sweet treats in many homes today.

Mexican bakeries will be busy selling thousands of Latin King Cakes for Kings Day.

Rosca De Reyes or King's Ring Cake is eaten on January 6th to commemorate the arrival of the three Magi or Wise Men.

The oval shaped cake is filled with fruit and cream cheese. A figurine of baby Jesus is also hidden somewhere inside to celebrate the Epiphany.

If you find it, traditionally you are suppose to hold a dinner at your home and host friends, family and neighbors. So enjoy!
