Cake in Vogue

Fashion is New York and New York is Fashion.  From the edgy streetwear strutting across the cobblestones of SoHo to the iconic sunflower yellow that graces the NYC taxi fleet, this city sets trends even before a second cup of coffee is poured.

Confectionary Couture had become an integral part of the haute set.  Over the last 20 years, we at Ron Ben-Israel Cakes have perfected turning dessert into works of art, which can be seen modeling at every elite event in the city.

Every inch is created by hand from the tiniest icing pearl to the oversized floral statements reminiscent of early Chanel and Carolina Herrera.  Ron Ben-Israel and the designers proudly reflect the ever-changing landscape of the city, embracing the Big Apple and allowing the metropolis to kindle inspiration.

Just as in the fashion world, trade secrets are carefully guarded.  We will not be divulging the origins of the colored pigments used to create incredibly lifelike sugar flowers, or the proportion of dry goods in the cake batter. The ways and means of creating a Ron Ben-Israel cake will be kept under lock and key, shared only with the inner circle.  (To join that “inner circle,” you can sign up for classes or apply for an internship on

We will be taking you on a journey every week sharing stories of how a humble baker became a pastry style icon and how our edible creations embody sweet fashion. We will show you how we have built our design house on top of a tiered foundation as strong as a stiletto heel, accessorized by sugar paste flowers as timeless as the Little Black Dress.

Join us as we explore la mode of Confectionary Couture.

  2. Obviously the NYT has it totally wrong, backwards …
    Manolo Blahnik is the ” Ron Ben-Israel ” of shoes.

    Apologies to Monolo … but…
    ” …If the shoe fits wear it !
    If the cake looks fantastic and it is delicious… it is from Ron Ben. ”
