alphitomancy
/al’fituh.mansee/.
noun
a means of divination using special cakes that are said to have a pleasant taste only for persons with a clear conscience.
[French alphitomantie, from Greek alphitomantis a diviner who used barley meal, from Greek alphiton barley meal]

‘alphitomancy’ is the best word I know, and not just because it has something to do with cake. It is a link to a past which is filled with absurd, odd, unexpected things.

Am I an alphitomancer? No. Although sometimes my cakes don’t work out, so I might use that as an excuse and predict a terrible future for someone.

I started the shop because I like fiddling around with buttons and craft supplies, and they are mounting up around the place.
