Roscón bakers hide a tiny toy or trinket and a fava bean inside the roscón cake. The person who finds the toy is King or Queen of the feast. The person who gets the fava bean has to buy the Tortell de Reis cake next year.

Most shops are closed on the 6th, but some stores might be open to start the January sales early.
