In Rainbow Swirl, Raina is a young Gummy fairy who takes her duties very seriously and carefully tends the Gummy Forest. She follows the fairy guidebook rules to the letter and is getting ready for the annual candy contest at the castle. The night before the event a terrible storm hits Sugar Valley and the winds and rain swirl all the colours of the candies together. It's a huge mess! Dot, a wise Candy Castle Fairy, pairs up with Raina. They wind up creating a new rainbow hue to decorate all the candies just in time for the annual candy contest held in the Gummy Forest. While the candy is not traditional, Raina wins for originality and is proud of her work.
