Rest in peace, my dear friend.
A similar thread was posted on the 17th:
I've met Frances Kuyper, didn't know she had passed. She was the Julia Child of the cake world, in my opinion.
This was a sad day for the cake world. She was a lovely person. I attended some meetings and classes with her.
She will be missed by all.
OMG not to be funny on this solemn post but I thought you were talking about me, because of my nick.
So sorry about her passing.
