How to Fake a King Cake

This was our second year of celebrating Epiphany with the kids, but we didn't really have time to make a king cake. So I improvised a bit...

I bought a cupcake for each member of the family and used a chocolate-covered gummy bear as the baby Jesus.

Kelly put the bear inside one of the cupcakes and then handed them out. For a second year in a row, I got the Jesus, making me king for the day. I chose Kelly as my queen.

Unfortunately, there was a bit of a coup and the girls wound up with the crowns.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown, Lulu. Especially when it's too way too large.
