is typically associated with Nature. Presently, as the concern about our environment is growing, the color green seems to be everywhere, as a strong symbol of serenity and new beginning. Or is it a vision of plastic contaminating the oceans and Mother Earth struggling to breath under mountains of waste?
Waste of food is most upsetting for me. Not only because there are so many starving people in the world, but also because this food waste is destroying our planet. When we toss that half eaten sandwich in the garbage lets remember that wasted food contributes billions of tons of greenhouse gases. Once in a landfill, decomposing organic waste generates methane, a potent greenhouse gas that traps 23 times more heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide; more than 20 percent of all methane emissions come from landfills.
Lets save this planet ------ reduce waste ----- recycle--- conserve energy.
This cake was for my sister. Her favorite color is green. I tried to make it look like an actual geode rock pried open. The rock candy crystals were quite edible. The cake was a plain vanilla cake with cannoli filling. Enjoy sister bear!
