Mother Nature Defends Earth From Devastation and Us

Earth Day Cake


This Terrific Earth Day Cake was made by Daniela Cabrera Godinex  located in Guanajuato, Mexico.

This Cake is part of the United Nations of Sugar Art (UNSA) Earth Day Collaboration: Acts of Green.  This event focuses on the beauty of our planet, its animals, and its people.  It will touch on the damage that is being done to our environment and how that damage is affecting humans and animals alike. 

Here’s Adela’s bio:

My name is Daniela Cabrera Godinez. The youngest of seven siblings, I was born in San Francisco del Rincon, Guanajuato, Mexico. I come from a family of merchants. My dad, passionate about his business, tireless, responsible and charismatic worker, taught me by example to appreciate and value the people, regardless of class or social status. From him I learned to respect, help, share, and always give the best of me. My mother, a great cook and baker, dedicated to her family, always surprised us with new and delicious flavors. Since childhood I was allowed to explore the world of the arts, I spent hours drawing, painting and modeling clay figurines, mud and any other material that came into my hands. My desire to learn prompted me to continue creating, even without academic studies or career, my thirst for knowledge was becoming greater. I am very visual, I see something I like and do not rest until reproducing what I see. I consider myself an example of the saying “love is power.” And I really think our best tool, are our hands.
For 16 years I was assistant to my sister who is a chef by profession. I was specializing in cake decorating and later in modeling figures in fondant.
In 2007 my husband and I started our family business called Danny’s Cake Factory. It is named in honor of our only daughter, Daniela.
At the end of 2012 I dabbled in the world of teaching. I decided to share what I’ve learned from professional manner and face, feeling the contact with real people, in real space.
Danny’s Cake Factory has taught workshops in pastry, cake decorating and modeling figures in fondant, creating a unique technique, fusion of different arts in almost all Mexico, Costa Rica and Spain. Soon we will be offering courses in other countries.
I participated as a speaker and lecturer representing Mexico on Expos, fairs and gastronomic scale international congresses. It is a great honor to represent proudly Mexican talent.
Currently two Mexican companies, Ma Baker and Chef and Cherry and Cake are official sponsors of my courses.

 Mi nombre es Daniela Cabrera Godínez. La menor de 7 hermanos, nací en San Francisco del Rincón, Guanajuato, México. Provengo de una familia de comerciantes. Mi papá, apasionado de su negocio, trabajador incansable, responsable y carismático, me enseñó con su ejemplo a apreciar y valorar a la gente, sin distinción de clases ni estatus sociales. De él aprendí a respetar, ayudar, compartir y dar siempre lo mejor de mí. Mi madre, gran cocinera y repostera, dedicada a su familia, siempre nos sorprendía con nuevos y exquisitos sabores. Desde muy pequeña se me permitió explorar el mundo de las artes plásticas, pasaba horas dibujando, pintando y modelando figuritas de plastilina, lodo y cualquier otro material que llegara a mis manos. Mi deseo de aprender me impulsó a seguir creando, aún sin tener estudios académicos, o una carrera profesional, mi sed de conocimiento cada vez era mayor, fue así como me formé de manera autodidácta.  Soy muy visual, observo algo que me gusta y no descanso hasta lograr reproducir lo que veo. Me considero un ejemplo más del dicho “querer es poder”.  Y creo realmente que nuestra mejor herramienta, son nuestras manos.Desde los 16 años fui asistente de mi hermana, chef de profesión. Especializándome en decoración de pasteles y posteriormente en modelado de figuras en fondant. En 2007  mi esposo y yo fundamos nuestro negocio familiar abriendo sus puertas al público Danny’s Cake Factory, nombrado en honor a nuestra única hija, Daniela.  A finales de 2012 incursioné en el mundo de la docencia, decidí compartir lo que he aprendido de manera profesional y  presencial, sintiendo el contacto con gente real, en un espacio real.Danny´s Cake Factory Workshops ha impartido cursos de repostería, decoración de pasteles y Modelado de figuras en fondant, creando una técnica propia, fusión de diferentes artes plásticas en casi toda la República Mexicana,  Costa Rica y España. Próximamente estaremos impartiendo cursos en otros países.He participado como expositora y conferencista representando a México en Expos, ferias de magnitud internacional y Congresos gastronómicos. Un gran honor representar con orgullo el talento mexicano.Actualmente dos empresas mexicanas, Ma Baker and Chef y Cherry and Cake son patrocinadores oficiales de mis cursos. 

Here’s a description of the cake:

A blue fairy sits at the north pole at the top of the cake. She is looking down, watching ice caps melt slowly. On the left side of the cake, Mr. Pollution is invading and destroying. In the center, Mother Nature is begging mankind to STOP the destruction. She floats between the viewers and Earth, defending the Earth from us. At the bottom left, a frightened Panda Bear represents all endangered animals. On the bottom right, an old tree trunk represents forest devastation. The baker wanted this Earth Day cake to represent anguish, sadness and devastation.
