Fungi Highly Flammable Fungi!

UK Safari Tip:
Kids - Don't do this unless there's an adult supervising.

The insides of King Alfred's cakes are tinder dry, and only need a tiny spark to ignite them.

It's not recommended, but once they are lit, you can cup them in the palm of your hands and use them as a natural hand warmer.
