La Petite France in West Hartford celebrates "Galette de Rois" or "King Cake" this month, with a sampling of the dessert during the weekend of Jan. 11 and 12.
In French tradition, the galette contains a small trinket baked into it, and the person who finds the token in their piece of cake becomes "king/queen for a day." During the sampling weekend, the guest who finds the charm will win a $30 gift card to the bakery.
La Petite France offers whole galettes for sale: a 10-inch cake for $25, 12-inch cake for $32 and 14-inch cake for $39.
The bakery is at 967 Farmington Avenue. 860-231-9255, lpfcafe.com.
