The bicycle in the boulangerie
Yes, that really is a bicycle in the boulangerie's window. This boulangerie is in Gavray and, along with another fellow baker, they are promoting the Tour de France. Both boulangeries are selling galettes des rois which are puff pastry cakes eaten throughout January. Each cake has a ceramic surprise hidden in it and the person who gets the slice with the surprise in it is crowned king. The theme this year is the Tour de France as the first three stages will take place in La Manche region of Normandy from 2 – 4 July.
