1  Teaspoon of Lion pride

2  Pages of poetry (self-written is best)

½ Teaspoon of Kalahari dust

5cm Zebra stripe (black or white)

120g Bhoomie sparkle

and 1 almighty roar!


Carefully transfer the Bhoomie sparkle into a large bowl, make sure you don’t spill any, otherwise your kitchen will start dancing (if you feel like boogying though then spill a little). Make a little hollow in the middle of the sparkle. Scrunch up the pages of poetry and tie them with the Zebra stripe. Place the tied poetry into the hollow.

Sprinkle the Kalahari dust (first) and the Lion pride (second) gently over the top of the sparkle and poetry. Stand back and give your most almighty roar, then be very quiet.

You’ll hear some crackling sounds – this is normal as the pride mixes with the sparkle. If the crackle turns to soft sponge then you’re on to a winner and you can call Miss Tea-Time to bring over her best brew. But, if you hear something that sounds more like a boom, then it means you didn’t sprinkle gently enough and that, unfortunately, there will be…Safari cake for none.

“Whoa! What an experience. I am not exactly what you would call talented in the kitchen and I did have 3 “Safari-Cake-For-None” experiences. Once I got the hang of it I noticed that if you tweak little things here and there, every cake turns out differently. This one here was one of my favourites. Watermelon on a hot African Day + Some leopard patterns + When the African Sky is heavy with rain and just starting to let go + The African Night Sky – even the Southern Cross. The cupcake holder – an African Sunset.” – Lie-Lie
