Urban Cake Lady's work if not featuring wolves features other wild and endangered animals. My interpretation of the conflict of human and wild animal in Red Riding Hood is now a metaphor for lost and endangered wilderness and the loss of our own links to wild and natural places. Urban Cake Lady explains her use of animals as:
"I've always loved natural, flowing, whimsical kind of things, so I guess it’s a real part of who I am. To me, they evoke feelings of calmness, and a bit of nostalgia … and I  like to think that I can stick up a quiet little moment,  that'll maybe make someone zone out from whatever might be going on around them."
