Ezekiel 16, Hosea 1-3

Wow, Ezekiel was a bit surprising to me. I mean here we have a woman that was left naked with her umbilical cord still attached, and God takes her in his hands and makes life better for her. But in return she became "evil." Why is this, especially after God did all these good things for her? Then everything that was known that was about her became a whore. And became whoring deeds of her. I know she was committing adultery, but why is everything being called a whore? In Hosea, the womans children are referred to as whores too! Is that just because she did commit adultery? But even so, why are the children being punished?

Also what is the significance of Raisin Cakes in Hosea 3:1? Where in the world did that come from?
