ut the event. It was truly a masterpiece and took our breath away when we saw it.
We also loved that we were able to build several flavors of cake and icing into each tier and our guests still talk about how unique and delicious their slices were. Although our partnership with Ron was included and and arranged through Tavern on the Green, we cannot recommend the RBI team enough for a beautiful wedding cake.

In spite of the fact that we had seen examples of his artistry in his studio, when we saw our cake at the reception, the design and the artistry involved in creating the cake blew us away! Not only were the flowers created out of frosting stunningly realistic, Ron captured the lace on my bridal gown in icing. It was truly a work of art. We received many comments by our guests about our beautiful wedding cake. And of course, our cake was delicious!

a very neat operation. The cake they created for our June 2019 was absolutely beautiful and delicious! As we had a traditional Greek wedding, Rob even had the brilliant idea to weave in a special flower that’s used during the ceremony. Their creativity has no limits, and the team will gladly tailor your cake to your desires. Beyond the visual aesthetic, which we have captured in a series of memorable photos, the cake tasted amazing and we cannot wait to have the top tier next year! A+ on all fronts, and totally worth it!

We recently hired Ron Ben-Israel to design a cake for our wedding at Gotham Hall in NYC. We had high expectations for this cake as it had to live up to the beauty of our exquisite venue, visually incorporate elements of our wedding theme, cater...
to guests with very discerning taste buds, and accommodate food allergies with a gluten-free layer!
The process of creating the cake with Ron Ben-Israel was a fun filled and delicious experience! He took to the time to meet with us personally to get a sense for the venue, our colors and floral arrangements, and other wedding themes. He showed us photos of many gorgeous cakes he’s designed to gauge our feedback on what we liked, which enabled him to create a custom cake based on a variety of themes. He also organized a wonderful cake tasting so we could select the type of cake and filling flavors for each individual layer inside.
To say the cake exceeded our expectations is an understatement! Not only did the cake taste phenomenal, but it was a SENSATIONAL work of art! He decorated our cake with gorgeous pink peonies to match the bride’s bouquet - they looked so real we weren’t sure if they were edible! He also took an image of a custom monogram we planned to use on our dance floor and incorporated it into bottom layer of frosting. Ron Ben-Israel is a true artist who we highly recommend for a wedding or any event! We look forward to another family event to work with him again!

look through a couple of giant books of cake photos and pick out the designs we liked the best. We tasted a chocolate and citrus cake; I'm usually a chocolate person but the citrus was AMAZING and turned out to be perfect for our summer wedding. On the wedding day, the cake looked beautiful and guests would keep stopping by to ask if the flowers were actually made of sugar (they are!). They looked so real and perfectly matched our other flowers. The cake itself was delicious; even the outer fondant was great. We are so glad that we get to have some again for our first anniversary!

We worked with Rebecca who, by the way, is a class act. She could not have been more helpful during our cake tasting. We tried several different cakes and various fillings and decided to go with Chocolate Cake with Berry and Cinnamon Cappuccino fillings. Not only was the cake super moist, fresh and delicious - the cascading flowers were absolutely spectacular. We matched the edible sugar flowers to both my gown and centerpieces. The cake was a masterful work of art. So pretty but yet inviting. Guests are still raving about how amazing the wedding cake was. Most people don't even eat wedding cake. In my case, they asked for a second helping. It was, without question, worth every penny. Go ahead and splurge! Maria

easible, since the wedding was in NE PA. My husband said that everything was so perfect, we should fly to NYC to see if Ron's cakes taste as awesome as they look. We did AND IT WAS! We couldn't believe that the cake tasted as phenomenal as it looked! Rebecca was a dream to work with and made sure that everything ran smoothly. For a nominal price, we had them deliver the cake from NYC to Scranton. WORTH EVERY PENNY! We used 2 different flavor choices for our cake among 4 tiers: pumpkin w/ mascarpone cinnamon pecan crunch filling and, for our less adventurous guests, vanilla cake w/blood orange (tastes like orange creamsicle- yum!) and blackberry fillings (alt. layers). DELICIOUS!!!
ARTWORK- our cake had a spiral cascade of sugar flowers that everyone swore were real flowers- peonies, roses, stephanotis, and many other flowers. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! There were even petals scattered around the tiers that added to the realistic look of it. We gave flowers to some guests as a party favor and kept the bouquet on top for ourselves that we will find a shadowbox for and proudly display in our home. The bands around the bottom of the tiers were like architectural trim you would find in a palace (3D). They were burgundy with with the appearance of copper foil on the protruding parts of the design and purple sparkles and jewels- and ALL EDIBLE!
PRICE- for those who are fans of sugar art, you can understand the price because you know the extent of the work that goes into a work of art like this. For those unaware- for the calibre of work that Ron and his staff produce, VERY REASONABLE! Compare to other artists (though Ron is my favorite anyway), you will find his prices very reasonable. My husband and I can be thrifty, but when we saw what Ron's staff delivered to our reception, we had no quams about what we spent. WE FELT LIKE ROYALTY! We cut our budget in other places, so we could have our dream cake. It really was a perfect day for us, that our Ron Ben-Israel cake contributed to... LOVED IT!
