Item details

Epiphany Charm's, Feves, French Vintage, Christmas cake Charms.

Please use the red more button for the full description.

23 miniature French cake charms as shown. Made of porcelain. These are tiny approx 1 inch tall or wide.

All of these charming cake charms are fairly roughly made.

They are collected here in France and websites sell them to help collectors complete their collections, as I guess one can only eat so many cakes.

Fèves are tiny porcelain or ceramic charms or figurines which are made to put inside an Epiphany Cake called a Gallette du Roi, or in English a king cake.,

This long standing tradition here in France is for the cake to be served during the Christmas Epiphany holiday which in France called La fête de l'épiphanie ou fête des rois and is celebrated on January 6th.

Here is a recipe for making your own and a little history of this French tradition.

http://www.davidlebovitz.com/galette-des-rois-kings-cake-recipe/

Tradition states that this is the day the three wise men came to Bethlehem to honour the baby Jesus.

Prior to the introduction of porcelain feves a bean was used as people were poor.Feve is a word in France for type of bean.

Great for replacing the traditional silver sixpence in English Christmas puddings.

What is the point of all this you may well ask? well if you are lucky enough to get the feve in your slice of cake, you get to be king for the day and do absolutely nothing all day. The box containing the cake also contains a gold paper crown for the lucky person to wear.
