The Amazing Ron Ben-Israel Cakes

I just had to share these videos and quotes from one of my greatest inspirations – Ron Ben-Israel.

He has been dubbed by Modern Bride magazine as the “King of Cakes.”

Ron Ben-Israel is known for making amazing luxury wedding cakes. His style includes fondant-covered wedding cakes that are decorated with sugar gumpaste flowers.

He also specializes in using elements of the wedding dress in the cake. To do this, he makes food-grade silicone molds from pieces of lace and beading from the actual dress.

And he ooozes passion.

Check the 2:40 mark to see his special locked drawers of fashion molds from Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier and Vera Wang:

Quote Ron: “People think that I’ll be heartbroken to see the cake being cut. However it’s the most joyous occasion for me that actually the bride and groom hold hands together and  cut the cake. It’s the first task they are doing as a married couple.”

And here’s a great video on what it takes to recreate the look of jewels and bling on a wedding cake:

Quote: “Once the cake is baked and frosted and stacked it’s like a blank canvas. I have all the elements –  sugar flowers and decorations. Once my hands get on the cake, it’s like a performance. You don’t stop, there is no going back, and the result always surprises me.”
