This year Judith Norell, an owner of Silver Moon Bakery on the Upper West Side, has added a new twist, raspberry preserves, to her galette des rois, or king cake, the confection served for Epiphany on Jan. 6. It’s usually fashioned from puff pastry and filled with marzipan, with a good luck token hidden inside. Her slightly nubbly homemade marzipan interior now has the added richness of raspberry and includes a tiny ceramic figurine embedded in it. She noted that some people serve the cake for New Year’s Eve.
Galette des Rois, eight-inch, $42; 10-inch, $47; 12-inch, $56; Silver Moon Bakery, 2740 Broadway (105th Street), 212-866-4717, silvermoonbakery.com.
