Classic cooking: How to make Crowley’s traditional ‘cakes of light’
Aleister Crowley, the wizard, invented his own equivalent to the wine and wafers of Catholicism. He proposed that his peculiar mixture could be used as a perfume (see Lady Gaga), or as a ‘cake’ to be eaten during ceremony.
‘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.
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 worshipers: last of some beast, no matter what.
This burn: of this make cakes & eat unto me. This hath also another use; let it be laid before me, and kept thick with perfumes of your orison: it shall become full of beetles as it were and creeping things sacred unto me.’
note: The menstrual blood may be substituted for semen.
