Smoking a big fat bowl before Shakespeare because the only thing we’re gonna do for two hours is watch a movie. 

I’m so okay with this. If that is all that’s required of me tonight, I will gladly go watch a movie.

How I make Cakes of Light

The Cake of Light is one of the central and historical Eucharists of Thelema (technically there are a nearly infinite number ofpossibleThelemic Eucharists, the Cake of Light though is one of the most widely used). There are about as many ways to make them as there are Thelemites who use them. I personally have gone through a number of recipes refining mine over time. The current recipe has been taken from Sisters Beth Kimbell, Cathedra, Sulis Thesmorphoros, and Aisha Qadisha.

The recipe given in the Book of the Law goes as follows:


  1. For perfume mix meal & honey & thick leavings of red wine: then oil of Abramelin and olive oil, and afterward soften & smooth down with rich fresh blood.
  2. The best blood is of the moon, monthly: then the fresh blood of a child, or dropping from the host of heaven: then of enemies; then of the priest or of the worshippers: last of some beast, no matter what.
  3. This burn: of this make cakes & eat unto me. (…)

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 Cake of Light (previously made)
1 lancet
1 censer and charcoal
Mortar and pestle
Large bowl
Measuring cup
Rolling pin
Pair of tongs
1 tsp of Cream of Tartar
½ cup of olive oil
½ cup of honey
1 cup of whole wheat flour
½ cup of Kamut flour
Several drops of Abramelin Oil

After a good banishing, prick your finger and bleed unto the previously prepared Cake of Light. Place the bloodied CoL unto the lit charcoal and take outside. Repeat the Adorations of Ra-Hoor-Khuit from Liber L, Chapter III adding your own personal adorations as the incense-cake is incinerated and offered to the Crowned and Conquering Child. Once incinerated, remove the burnt cake with the tongs and place in a mortar and pestle. Grind finely and add to the mixing bowl (it should come out to be about a teaspoon).

To the ash add the cream of tartar and mix with a fork. To this add the two types of flour and mix thoroughly and evenly (preferably sifting the mix as well).

In the measuring cup add the wet ingredients (olive and Abramelin oils and honey) stirring vigorously to mix thoroughly.

Next, gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet folding them together with a fork or spatula until all of the ingredients are mixed together. Go ahead and preheat your oven to 350’ F

Using your hands, knead the dough and remove it to a flat, even surface. With the rolling pin (I use a special wand for the purpose) even out the dough so that it is uniform in thickness. Next, cut the Cakes of Light using whatever shape you desire and place them on a cookie sheet. Once all the dough has been used, place the cookie sheet in the oven for five minutes. Remove and let cool. Remember: Once you take them out of the oven they will still be cooking so make sure not to overcook them in the oven. Once cool, place in container and keep in freezer until needed.

kushl0rd With all this discussion on offering cakes I thought it might be useful to trot this one entry out.

You dug this up just for me <3

Cakes of light fascinate me. I would love to incorporate pscilocybin mushrooms into them in some way and eat them.

Offering Wafers - Attempt, the First






Do they taste good? Although I guess if you were putting oil on them you wouldn’t be eating them after offering them…just curious

Oh .. well, they’re rather bland - Flower, Salt, and Olive Oil. But they’re not necessarily bad tasting, they’re just bland :P heh. I suppose you could make up a batch, not destine as offerings, and use them for small finger sandwiches when you didn’t want to detract from a particularly tasty spread.

Really? That’s all? Hmmm.

The picture you weren't sure was Isis or Ma'at. I'm pretty sure it's Isis because of the headdress.

Thanks greyface. That’s right! Ma’at has feathers.

Offering Wafers - Attempt, the First



A few days ago I posted about my plans to make offering wafers, as a way to incorporate offerings into my practice in a way I felt was appropriate in the Solomonic Tradition.

Here is my first attempt.

I halved the recipe for this first attempt, because if it ended up as a disaster, I would only be out half the materials :P  Even so, this ended up not too bad! I used barley flower (because, that’s what I had on hand) and opted to bake them at a lower temperature for much longer - I’m not sure why I did that, other than I thought it would yield a more even bake through each wafer, without making the edges turn color. I think I was successful.

I used a shot glass as a cutting tool to make the wafers (while giggling at the small irony in the process), and managed to get 12 wafers out of the first rolling. I didn’t re-roll the leftover dough … I was still kind of fearful this wasn’t going to work, so I just used the first rolling and tossed the scraps - I probably could have cut 3, maybe 4, if I had re-rolled :\

As this was a test run for the recipe, I don’t plan on using these as offerings - there’s more I would like to do for that: Before baking, I plan to mark each wafer with the appropriate seal first, and then immediately on taking them out of the oven, place a drop of Oil of Abramelin on each. THEN they will be ready to be used as offerings :)

As for this test batch … I’ll keep them on me for a while, and use them to feed the birds around my crossroads. Not exactly an offering, but still in reverence for the area.
