NETFLIX’S ROSCÓN DE REYES

A special commission for Nextflix España for the Three Wise Kings Celebration Day.

At the beginning of 2021, Netflix commissioned Naolito to create a special gift to their fans: based on the celebration of the ‘Three Wise Kings’ day and its Traditional ‘Roscón’* Cake, we modeled four of the most famous characters of Netflix Series: Dustin (Stranger Things, USA, Paquita Salas (Paquita Salas, Spain), The Professor (La Casa de Papel, Spain) and Sabrina Spellman (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, USA).

Usually, these traditional figures are tiny, so we created a digital environment as a dining table, and we placed the figures on and around the cake to get some perfect shots. Also, we added a lot of magical shiny lights and warm colors, as this celebration is involved by some mysticism, and the original cake has a lot of sweet toppings.

* On January the 6th, Spaniards celebrate the Three Wise Kings day, and all the families eat the ‘Roscón de Reyes’ together, a rounded dough cake, where some small figures are hidden. If somebody finds the ‘King’ figure, it will be named as the King or Queen. However, if somebody finds a bean, he/she will be the loser and must pay for the cake.
