Cakes & Wine (Blessing)
Once all the magical work has been completed, the Blessing of the Cakes / Bread & Wine will take place.
Traditionally, the leading Priestess & Leading Priest (or the Priest & Priestess who were invoked as the God & Goddess on the circle) will bless the Cakes & Wine.
In many groups (in some of ours) we also do `group blessings’ where all the members present will reach out and place one hand on the Chalice or plat of cake/ bread.. and all do a communal blessing.
Once blessed, the Chalice of Wine & plate of cakes are either taken around either by the people who blessed them… or 2 other designated people.. to the rest of the people in the circle. Each person partakes in this.. (taking a sip of the wine, and a small piece of the cake)
