What is Cakes and Ale, a Communal Meal

Updated on:


Written by: Morningbird & MS Team

In the magical community, cakes and ale refer to a communal meal that takes place as part of a magical ritual or a Pagan religious ceremony. This sharing symbolizes and celebrates abundance and our gratitude for it and often serves as a grounding activity.

The meal is usually symbolic, a bite or two and a sip and often accompanied with the wish that those partaking may “never hunger” and “never thirst”. Although it may be referred to as cakes and ale, the food and drink vary. It is often a baked good and an alcoholic beverage, but fruit, juice, milk or water may also be used.

In the English vernacular, the term Cakes and Ale is a metaphorical phrase meaning “lively enjoyment” or “fun”, “the pleasurable things in life”.
