I read today on facebook that a fellow cakecentral member, Rylan TY has died? Please let this be a sick joke....... he is such great talent in the art, it would be sooooo sad if it were so.. Can someone please tell me it ain't so?
It is true. Edna posted about it...he took his own life. Such a horrible loss to all. He was a kind and gentle soul - and such an amazing artist. I am still in shock that he is gone......rest in peace Rylan Ty.
OH NO!!! A truly inspiring talent, his first cake was better than my 500th... What a sickening loss.
oh i'm so sorry to hear that
he is/was an amazing sugar artist
and a very giving person
just from what i knew of him from here
god bless the family and all involved
love & prayers
here's a teeny tiny but important part of his sweet rich legacy
Where did you guys read about it? Not to be morbid, but I would like to know more.
Anna - i just received a phone call from America telling me that yes, it is true... He took his own life... due to his broken heart.... my eyes burn with tears... i cannot comphrehend the reality of it at the moment...
Vale my dear friend.... the world will miss you
How fortunate was i that we shared laughter and chocolate together in LV...
So utterly sad
What a sad state. A permanent solution to a temporary problem...
O my goodness, that's such terrible news :(
What terrible news...so sad!
Oh no... This is horrible. He was such a talented young man, and so willing to share information. The cake world has lost an important member. My thoughts are with his family.
That is so sad. I wish everyone on CC had known he was going through a hard time. There are so many good people on this website.
Oh my! I know i don't post much but I do read every day and he was one of the first people on here that I fell in love with. I never talked or emailed him or anything but I totally looked up to him and read his blog sometimes (when I had the chance). I have missed him here on CC but figured he was busy doing other things. My heart breaks for him and his family. To be so sad and so upset. I've been there. I just wish we (or at least someone here) knew what he was going through.
Good by Rylan...you will be dearly missed. An awesome and talented decorator and I'm sure a better person.
Wait a minute...this is Rylan we're talking about. Really? I can't believe it...
Such an accomplished cake designer with beautiful works of art. How awful.
Such an incredible loss to the world and the cake community. Rylan was always a generous and caring member of the cake central family and such a pleasure to talk to. On top of that, such an amazing talent. It is so heartbreaking.. Jackie and I are just devastated ....
such a gifted artist
his first cakes were phenomenal
legendary in my mind
Wow, such sad news. :( My thoughts are with his family.
Wow, what a loss! He was so talented even as a beginner. So sad. Thoughts and prayers are with his family.
Rest in peace Rylan. The world has lost such a talented, giving person.
ASo very sad :(
Omg, you guys are talking about our Rylan from this forum?!! ---oh no...I'm heart broken. He's very young and talented...I'm so sad now
Very Sad...Such a young and talented artist! May he find peace in heaven. RIP
This is so sad... I wish we could have known that he was in pain. Maybe his fellow cakers could have lifted him back up. I was so hoping we could meet in person one day. My prayers to his family. :-(
How very sad. My condolences go out to his family.
I still have his blog post about ganache saved as a bookmark in my favourites. :)
So very sad , my prayers for him and his family.
I am so sad, that is impossible to digest
AI absolutely mean no disrespect, but I'm wondering where the information came from and if it has been verified as fact. I only ask because of what happened with him several years ago. If this is true, it's very sad and I can only wish his friends and family strength and peace in dealing with such a sad event.
It's on Edna De la Cruz fb if anyone is interested.
