Get incredibly drunk because that's the only way this cake makes sense.(If you have been blessed with having never seen this infamous video, here is the cake in question.) 2. Get a Kwanzaa menorah for your candle lighting ceremony. (Also learn that the Kwanzaa menorah is actually called a "kinara" so you should probably stop calling it that.) Sylvie Rosokoff 3. Decorate however you see fit. The more "African prints" the better tbh. Sylvie Rosokoff 4. You can wear whatever you want! A cute holiday dress or your finest dashiki – all are welcome!
