Maestro is only a spanish word for teacher?

yep, in portuguese we dont use maestro as teacher but for a conductor of an orchestra or choir.

I have heard Brazilians say 'mestre'.

Whenever you're speaking of things like chocolate cake, mint ice cream etc, the word formulation is always cake of chocolate, ice cream of mint etc? But if you were to say brown cake or green ice cream it would just be cake brown or ice cream green not cake of brown?

And then there's if the ice cream was just the colour mint but not mint flavoured. Oh boy.
