Today is Épiphanie, a Christian feast, we celebrated this in our lab in a traditional French way.... It goes like this, there is a special type of a cake called "gâteau des Rois" its made of almond paste ( very very delicious) and this cake have two small toys inside. The youngest of the group cuts the cake and then goes down the table and distributes the pieces randomly to the group, the person who gets this small toy(you can see one in Marc's hand) are crowned as the king and the queen.
Here are some pictures, that's Marc, the youngest under the table distributing the cake. Sneaky Marc..got the crown too..that's Marc and Agnes crowned as the King and the Queen. Festivals are always fun, its nice to see the lighter side of the serious scientists...
