January 6, 2009 |  7:28 am

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.
