His ability turned into a mission, by re-using the kitchen scraps, and became a very noble one: Toni wanted to help the hungry by handing out his leftover creations to the poor and the homeless. Word of Toni’s generosity spread, and every day, lines of beggars formed at the back door of the castle’s huge kitchen, spilling into the surrounding streets and alleys.
On the day of the year’s most anticipated culinary event — the Duke’s annual Christmas Luncheon — an accident caused irreparable damage to the cake destined to crown the holiday feast. In a rush, and suddenly remembering Toni’s charitable mission, the chefs and pastry cooks scrambled to inspect the back rooms to see whether Toni had prepared something for his needy followers that was suitable for their liege and his guests. There, they discovered one single item that—apart from tasting delicious—was also perfectly presentable in The Duke’s dining room: a tall, fluffy loaf of sweet bread shaped like a Sultan’s crown.
