‘Long as I got my plastic Jesus.

Over at Morelia’s favorite panaderia, Hornos Ortiz, The Wise Men and their entourage, made entirely of bread dough, now play a supporting role to Wednesday’s Rosca de Reyes, in which a baby Jesus will find himself nestled and lying in wait to spring himself upon whomever is destined to serve up tamales come the second day of February.

Many thanks to Lorna Dillon, who travelled all the way from Scotland to take these photos.
