That's TERRIBLE icon_sad.gif . They make breathtaking cakes. Hopefully, they will get back in the saddle again and start making fabulous cakes after they rebuild.

Kellbella, I didn't realize you'd started this thread, so I just started a similar one. Sorry! You must be in Chicago, too.

I took a fondant purse class with Mary & Brenda in December. They're so nice -- my heart really goes out to them!

Just read it, omgosh! I am beyond sad for them right now. I wish there was a way we could reach out to them but I am guessing they are very busy right now trying to figure out what to do.

Oh, so sad, my heart goes out to them. From the report, at least it seems as if no one was hurt, keeping my fingers crossed that that is true.

I feel so bad for them both. Wonderful women both. But they also seem very strong and resilient. I'm hoping and betting they will be back better and stronger than ever, even before we know it. Wish we could all help them out.

Thats terrible. Maybe the website can send them all of our thoughts and prays. Maybe even to a spread in the magazine. I agree i wish there was something we could all do.

It is very sad, but God will restore what they have lost and they will be bigger and better, just like Job in the Bible.

How true mamawrobin. What a heartbreaking thing to happen. Even though it's a building, it's like losing a best friend. I hope everything turns out well for them and the other occupants of the building.
