6th Annual APS King Cake Party @ Aux Petits Soins

To make sure everyone stays safe through the ongoing pandemic, our winter cultural celebrations will once again be held online, just like last year’s successful events. Our first one – the 6th Annual King Cake Party – will be split into two virtual events on Sunday, January 23 from 3 to 5 p.m. As always, the party will be held in French to preserve APS’s dedication to French language immersion, but has been designed so that participants of any level of familiarity with the language – including none – will feel comfortable.  

The focus of the party will be on king cakes, an important part of the traditional French Epiphanie celebration. All participants will get their own mini-king cake, giving them a chance for a year’s worth of good luck if they find a charm inside! Each event is limited to 10 families to ensure plenty of one-on-one time, and all activities have been geared to keep APS’s youngest students engaged for a full hour. 

Schedule:

All materials can be picked up the day of the event (Sunday, Jan. 23) between 10 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased online up until noon on Friday, Jan. 21. 

3-4 p.m.: Part 1 – Virtual cooking class
This event is geared toward older children and adults, as it involves working in the kitchen. Participants will need access to an oven and a small prep area where they have room to spread out and perform all the steps of building a king cake.

• Admission to party and King Cake Building Kit (includes pre-measured ingredients good for making up to four king cakes): $30
• Admission to party only (good for entire two-hour event): $10
• Pre-made king cake: $8 

4-5 p.m.: Part 2 – Craft, story time and king cake tasting
This event is geared toward younger children and families. Participants will need access to a table or open floor space where they have room to spread out and perform all the steps of building cardboard crowns. 

• Admission to party and King Cake Fun Kit (includes a set of crown-building supplies and two king cakes)
• Admission to party only (good for entire two-hour event): $10
• Additional king cake: $8
