Today I heard the most heartbreaking news anyone can receive. My brother, who is the true artist in the family, has passed away at 46. Unfortunately, I cannot go see him and be with family. I was born and raised in the Philippines and have been living in the States for 3 years. At times like this, you just wish you could ride a plane and be with them.

He had so much influence on who I am today. In memory of this beautiful man, I made this Easter cake with him and my mom in mind. I had so many good memories of him while I worked on this cake. I was crying and singing along with some songs he introduced me to. I only hope he could see what I have created for him.

Please pray for his eternal peace. Thank you all for listening.

wow, I'm so sorry for your loss. You will be in my Easter prayers. What a beautiful cake to make in his memory. I'm sure he would greatly appreciate it.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My 43 year old sister died last month. She was mentally retarded and she was my hero, accomplishing a lot of things in her lifetime. She taught us all a lot.

Your cake gives me the impression that you had 'spiritual help' in it's creation. Your brother would be very proud of it .... and you.
