Ron Ben-Israel Cakes Ron Ben-Israel has been a trendsetter in all things cake for 2 decades. His distinct style and techn As Chef-Owner of one of the most established couture cake studios in the world, Ron Ben-Israel started his confectionery adventures after a fifteen-year career as a professional modern dancer.

Upon retiring from performing with companies spanning three continents, he utilized his fine art schooling and ballet training to master the discipline of pastry arts. After apprenticeships and engagements in Toronto, Canada and Lyon, France, he was led to New York City. In 1996, his cakes were discovered while on display in the windows of Mikimoto on Fifth Avenue and commissions quickly followed

Most chefs have troubled feet as a result of years of neglect and from standing for long hours on hard floors.

I’m glad to share my favorite brand for shoes and boots that are both comfortable and healthy, as well as stylish. offerings are available in various widths and many styles, and the company would even refurbish older pairs for you.

Featured here are a couple of my newest finds from the Holiday 2023 collection.

When I started decorating cakes I rejected the standard icing “festoons” that were so popular at the time… Instead, I would practice for days piping PEARLS, trying to achieve the perfect round shape of this exquisite gem.

My ultimate inspiration has always been Grace Kelly, the late Princess of Monaco. She remains the epitome of beauty and elegance with a simple strand of Pearls around her neck.

Great job
Thanks to our friend Michael Andrews with Michael Andrews Bespoke in NYC, not only do we get to wear his threads on stage, but we also get to attend his parties and meet some pretty fabulous people. On this particular storied night at a gentlemen’s reception in his Lower Manhattan studio, we met the impeccably-dressed pastry chef Ron Ben-Israel of Food Network fame. If you are a foodie, then you’ve probably seen him on his show Sweet Genius-Food Network, or on Cake Wars, Chopped, Sugar Rush, or as a guest on Oprah, Martha Stewart, or countless other programs.

Ron Ben-Israel’s story is quite remarkable. He was born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, to a father who survived Auschwitz as a child where he lost most of his family, and a mother who had been rescued from the ghettos of Vienna, Austria. He served in the army, as every young man and woman in Israel is required to do, but then went on to become a dancer. For 15 years he toured internationally with different Israeli dance companies, and before long he had the opportunity to move to New York. It was there he discovered his love and gift of baking, so he took off his dancing shoes and donned an apron, quickly earning a reputation as one of the country’s finest pastry chefs. Now, this in-demand personality is one of the foremost authorities in the world of confections.

Having just returned from Israel where we performed for audiences with stories similar to that of Ron’s–Holocaust survivors and their children, and Jewish refugees escaping persecution–this picture and the moment it represents means so much more to us now. It was a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Ben-Israel.
