The renowned sugar and cake artist’s death was revealed first by the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show, which she co-founded.
“It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing of Kerry Vincent earlier this evening. Being a very private person when it came to all things not cake, she did not want to put her illness out there to the public,” the post shared.
It continued, “Unfortunately her fight has come to an end but she will no longer have any pain. She will be sorely missed by all who she has touched through the Sugar Arts as well as personally. There will be no services per her request. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.”
Kerry received many tributes on social media, including from Australian celebrity chef Dan Lepard and Food Network star Zac Young, as well as many fans.
Very sad to learn that Kerry Vincent @KerryVincentArt has died. Judge on the first series of @BakeOffAU @Channel9 and founder of the Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show. Kerry's vigour & fierce determination was an inspiration for so many. #KerryVincent https://t.co/a3dkOq1l02
