SALT, FLOUR, EGGS, BAKING SODA, WATER, SUGAR, BUTTER and MOLASSES.
Those are the ingredients in the cake that Garvie made in Touching spirit bear he also made Cole sample all of the ingredients before he gave him some of the cake. In this blog I am going to explain each of those ingredients as a metaphor.
Lets start with the Salt it is a metaphor on Cole's personality how it is all Salty and awful.
Next the Flour it represents how Cole makes other people feel like if he makes them scared then he will blow them away until they feel all scattered around inside (or in Peters case outside).
Now the Eggs they represent how Peter felt when he was being beaten up by Cole all scrambled and broken (they also kinda represent Cole after he was mauled by the bear).
Now we're going to talk about the Baking Soda it represents how Cole beating up Peter just made his anger for Cole rise.
Next I will talk about the Water it represents how the last thing that Cole did to break the law (beating up Peter) washed away all of the trust that Cole's parents had in him.
Now for the Sugar it represents how Cole had to sweet talk all of the people at circle justice to get them to let him into the program.
Now i'm going to do Butter it represents how Cole thought that he could just slip out of prison after committing crimes.
And finally the Molasses it represents how after the last crime Cole committed he got caught like he was trapped in molasses.
