“All three of us like chocolate cake for breakfast. Mom had never allowed it with ham and eggs, but Darry let Soda and me talk him into it. We really didn’t have to twist his arm; Darry loves chocolate cake as much as we do. Sodapop always makes sure there’s some in the icebox every night and if there isn’t he cooks one up real quick. I like Darry’s cakes better; Sodapop always puts too much sugar in the icing” (Hinton 104-105).
Remember what symbolism is? A symbol is something that stands for something you can’t see. The American flag is a symbol of freedom, patriotism, liberty, etc. A heart is associated with love.
