Irma Kay was my beautiful friend and my mentor. She always had time to talk to me about cakes. We had made plans to get together so she could teach me how to make her beautiful designs. We wanted to have a girls’ lunch and just enjoy each other’s company and discuss our shared love of cakes. But, sadly, we never got to have that time together. I will miss her so much.

Saddened to hear that Mrs. Irma has passed on. She made numerous cakes for me and my family through the years!! The last cake she made was for my mom's surprise 80th birthday!! The cake was half pound and half strawberry. She made cakes for my 13th and 21st birthday as well. Her cakes were delicious and full of love. RIP Mrs. Irma.

I absolutely loved "Erma Kay." When I was a child she lived down the road from us. She always had such a sweet smile and kind words of encouragement. Then in later years she became "the cake lady". Her cakes were absolutely the best! My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I hope you can find peace by sharing the wonderful memories you share.

I am so glad I had a heart to heart with her after my dad died. She was worried about me 💝🙏. Ms Irma Kay could make your heart sing with a butter cream icing yellow cake. (And I don’t even like icing). She was putting away all her cake pans when we last spoke. Truly this is the end of an era. 💝💝💝🎂

Thank you for making our birthday, anniversaries, and even our church sales memorable.

Say hi to mom and Papi.

I am heartbroken to hear of Ms Irma-Kay's death. She was truly a legend in the cake baking business. She made every birthday cake for both of my girls when they were growing up, and Connor's gorgeous wedding cake. She made the best pound cake with butter cream icing I have ever had. I loved talking to her, and she always wanted to know about my kids. I hadn't seen her often as of late, but when I did we always had a lot to talk about. Rest easy dear lady.
