Mexicans enjoy the bread of kings -- with cream

Pasteleria Suiza in the trendy Condesa neighborhood in Mexico City put its own spin on the traditional rosca de reyes, the "bread of kings.''

The bakery stuffs the oval-shaped cake, eaten by Mexicans on Jan. 6 to remember the Three Wise Men, with a delicious, sweet cream.

Hundreds of Mexicans flock to the shop to buy the roscas, which are then taken home to be shared with family and friends. Watch the video for more.
