The Master of the American|
By Deborah McCoy
Ron Ben-Israel is America's wedding cake master whose incomparable culinary delights have made their appearance on shows like Oprah and Martha Stewart who gushes, "Ron Ben Israel does amazing sugar work… formed flowers-so perfect!"
Ben-Israel's studio in the SoHo district of New York City is one that reflects his culinary genius. His is the realm of the couture cake-the one of a kind variety that sets the trend for brides for the coming year. You do not bring a photo to Ben-Israel for him to copy. He designs the cake for "you" that others will copy… And like a one-of-a-kind wedding gown, his cakes are premium and pricey.
Designing a wedding cake with Ben-Israel is like having your wedding dress created at one of the finest couture houses in Europe. It is an intricate process, whereby the designer delves into the heart and soul of the bride. What are her tastes? What colors are her favorites? What is the look of her reception site? What is the formality of the wedding? What about the wedding gown (Ben-Israel may even incorporate an edible version of the lace)? What are her bridesmaids wearing? What about the linens for her tables? What flavors are her favorites? What is her personality and her heritage? What is the look she wants to achieve? All of these factors, along with Ben-Israel's guidance, will turn her wedding cake fantasy into reality.
