The Rainbow Cake

The world was like a mixing bowl before we made the cake. Empty, clean and ready  to start the cake we wished to bake. We got busy and selected our ingredients and made sure that they were the best, nothing less than new and pure would be used for this fest!

We needed a Rainbow Cake to bind us all together , we needed a Rainbow Mix to get us to meld for the better. We needed moving out of the primeval slime. What we needed were colours that would make us shine perhaps a little lemon mixed with a dash of lime.

The Rainbow Mix was not very mellow it had ridged colours red, orange,green, blue, violet, indigo and yellow. As time went on this no longer worked too many colours and textures were thrown in to bowl. Pride , joy, love,hate, vengeance, desire, not to mention a large pinch of soul. While these feelings were mixing we had to separate the tribes black white yellow brown into cups and set them by the fire. Yes there were more than just a few but they all added to the hue.

Colours of the Rainbow

We could not leave the tribes too long in the heat for they would spoil, and we could ill afford that, then, after all our toil. We whisked them thoroughly and when they started to peak  we folded them in gently with love into the Rainbow Mix. Little tasters we  would sneak.

The oven was heated and the mix was put in, we all watched in wonder, we could not believe our eyes as the layers, though very thin, began to rise.

Cut another slice.

It looked so very lovely soft and full of colour it really was a prize. When the cake was baked we put it out to cool it looked so different to what we had before , it was our shining  jewel.

We took the soft and powdery snow from off the mountain tops and mixed it with waters of the oceans blue and made a wondrous icing , Oh! yes we did it’s true. The stars and the moon looked and marvelled at our treasure and even the golden sun smiled down  on it with pleasure.

So now we had our Rainbow Cake all shiny and new all types of soul and colour here, every tint and hue. Lets not waste it’s message lets all start anew we could all happily mix together . I know we can it is true!
