Rosca de Reyas

This important part of any Mexican Christmas celebration is egg bread made into a circular wreath and decorated with fruit and sprinkled sugar. Inside, a small ceramic doll representing the Baby Jesus is hidden and the person who finds it becomes the Godparent of Christ when it is time to celebrate the Candelaria on February 2.
