Ron Ben-Israel


Look who I met!  Here’s the world’s most talented cake artist, Ron  Ben-Israel.  Otherwise known as the “Manolo Blahnik of wedding cakes” (quoted from the NY Times), or the “King of Cakes” as referred to by Modern Bride Magazine, or simply “fabulously dressed” in my book (check him out!), Ron is a superstar cake creator with a perfectionist’s attention to detail.  Just look at his amazing work below!

I hurriedly popped into the last room at the New York Palace’s bridal showcase hoping to take everything in before close as if I were just entering the last 10minutes of a Barney’s warehouse sale.  In my hurry to take in the crumbling fabulousity around me (vendors were tearing down much to my dismay), I barely noticed the celebrity cake maker staring at me.  I twirled in place quickly scanning the room to strategize my starting point when to my surprise, Ron approached me to comment on my look saying he wanted to take a picture with me.  (No one can resist my poodle purse as it seems to attract all!)  Little did he know I was even more excited to take a photo with him for not only have I seen him on Ace of Cakes I’ve spent an embarrassing amount of time oohing and ahhing at his website, PLUS I was soon to be his future bridal client!  Ron is making my wedding cake!

The best part about the meetup is that Ron agreed to do a FabGabBlog interview.  So here is your chance, readers.  What do you want to ask Ron?  I’ll make sure to add in your questions and let you know the answers in a follow-up post!  Leave your comments here!

I finally narrowed my bajillion questions down to a few:

1. Proudest moment as a cake designer
2. Favorite cookbook
3. What influences and inspires his designs the most
4. His opinion on all the cake-related television shows
5. What aspect of cake decorating he likes the most
6. Why he has not published a cake decorating book yet

Thank you so much for doing this, Stella! : ) You are wonderful!
