King Cake finds its way to Portugal during the 19th century when Confeitaria Nacional opened as Portuguese monarchy’s official bakery in 1829. The cake is round with a large hole in the centre, resembling a crown covered with crystallized fruit. The characteristic of this cake is a fava bean and a small prize (usually a small metal toy). Tradition dictates that whoever finds the fava has to pay for the King cake next year.The inclusion of the prize has been discontinued under EU rules, for alleged safety reasons since mid-90s.
