Dating back to medieval times, the Twelfth Cake was an important element in the celebrations for the feast of the Epiphany. It was the custom for each guest at a Twelfth Day entertainment to take on the role of a particular character for the whole evening, which included a King and Queen who led the revels. The evening ended with the finale of cutting the elegantly iced Twelfth Cake, which was often decorated with characters from the revels.
