Oatcakes are a part of the Beltane ceremony. The roundness is symbolic of the life-giving sun. During Beltane a bonfire is kept going all night long. Pieces of the cake are thrown into the fire as an offering. Begin by blessing these cakes in a prayer of gratitude, giving thanks to the Goddess and God for their abundance. Say: We are each a part of the joyous circle of love. As we cast the bread into the fire We fuse together into the One Being, That always was and always will be.
