Casca, the traditional sweet of three kings day of the Valencian Community

La Casca is the traditional sweet of kings that almost disappeared when the Roscón arrived
The Christmas tradition in Valencian lands ordered the godparents to give their nephews a casca on January 6. In some families the carriers were the Three Wise Men and it was placed next to the toys that the boys and girls had on Christmas Day.
They were carefully presented in hand-illustrated cardboard boxes that were never thrown away; they were a legacy passed down from generation to generation. They were decorated with floral motifs, Christmas, with mosaics, prints or even reproductions of paintings. Inside the box, the casca was accompanied by dragees, chocolates, candied fruit and all kinds of sweets.
