Jordan almonds sound like a great idea.

Apparently some of the bakeries put the charms in after the cake is baked. The French cakes are different - more like a croissant - so a hole wouldn't show.

Some great ideas here... I am basically opposed to putting inedible stuff in a cake but love the jordan almond idea and the dried apricot would work well.

I have a good friend who is a transplant from NOLA and made the King Cake for her but perfecting the real deal is on my bucket list. The Rhodes bread version just isn't quite right....

We sometime put coins into Christmas puddings for luck. They are usually wrapped in baking foil as for health reasons. The fact that the amount of sugar in a portion of C/pudd will probably kill you before the coin poisons you seems to be passed over
