Waldorf Festival- Three Kings

We made our traditional Three Kings cake (maple buttermilk cake) I hid a thick round slice of carrot in the cake to be "found". (years passed we did coins, but I always felt odd about cooking a coin in my cake!)
We sang some songs about Babushka and Three Kings (The Christmas Star by Mary T-) and we read the story of Babushka from Food, Festivals and Fun!
As it runs out, Mommy found the carrot! So, I get to chose a "fun" day for us all.

Pictures and links coming soon..sorry, still recovering from a wicked head cold and I am a bit behind  :)


  1. The carrot is a terrific idea! :) Glad you are feeling better.

  2. Go Momma! How fun and I do so hope you feel better. It's always when we're under the weather, we realize how much we appreciate our good health...so we're sending some healing vibes your way :D

  3. that cake sounds MMMMM! This is our second year sharing Three Kings Day and Epiphany in our home. We aren't exactly hitting them on the right days, though, as the things we have had going on outside our home have been taking all our time! Thank you for sharing!

  4. Og, I feel your pain with the head cold. Remember, pastry does it some good :)
    Lovely celebration that you had, great idea with the carrot. I am going to have to remember that one.
