It's Three Kings Day, and no holiday celebration is complete without a Rosca de Reyes, the ring-shaped sweet bread decorated with candied fruit.
Meant to resemble a jeweled crown, the ring typically hides a small plastic doll (or six), symbolizing the baby Jesus.
In East Harlem, Mexican groceries sell the dessert in different sizes during the holiday season.
Not sure where to start? Swing by these two bakeries that make their own.
2129 Third Ave between E 116th and E 117th Sts
With its own branded rosca de reyes box, this bakery definitely runs a smooth operation. There are three sizes: small ($27), medium ($40) and large ($47), all available through January 14.
129 E 110th St between Park and Lexington Aves
This narrow, sweetly-scented Mexican bakery is stacked with boxes of roscas that are fresh out of the oven. Rings range from $20 to $40, and there are even individual-size versions.
