The Frightened Cake
The Frightened Cake :
Once, there was a mother who was always baking cakes for her children. One day she prepared a cake with so much love that when she took it out of the oven, even her spoilt children's mouths watered.
'Dear mothers, kind mother,’ her greedy and impatient children begged her, ‘hurry up and give us a slice. '
'Wait until it cools down and you can eat it all,' was the reply.
But when the cake heard the fate that was in store for it, it was terrified. The cake jumped out of the dish, rolled off like a wheel, out of the door and then disappeared down the road.
