Ron Ben-Israel Cakes is truly the way to go when looking for a one of a kind, gorgeous and delicious cake. Ron and his team were fantastic to work with, always responsive and flexible with our needs. The cake was so stunning it almost felt like a crime to cut into but once we took our first bites it was so worth cutting!!! And the flowers he makes look SO real it is incredible. They can even be saved and displayed after the wedding and after a month to date they still look amazing on our dining room table!

Highly recommend Ron Ben-Israel Cakes!!!

Ron Ben-Israel Cakes were very accommodating - they were able to design our cake on short notice due to a miscommunication between our wedding coordinator and my husband and I. Our cake was simply gorgeous, and they were able to make details to go with our classic art-deco venue. The amazing part of these cakes are the sugar flowers. Many of our guests assumed they were real flowers that were provided by our florist, but in fact they were edible! They also offer GLUTEN FREE, which was great for me as well as a few of my guests who are gluten intolerant. My only issue was that the taste of the cake was nothing extraordinary, but good enough. If you are going for beautiful and impressive cake pictures, this is the cake to go. If you are going for out of this world taste, I would recommend something else.

A cake by Ron Ben Israel was included with our wedding package at the New York Palace, but I would choose him over and over again! We had our tasting with Ron, and he was incredibly pleasant, helpful, and totally understood our vision.

Most importantly, the cake was delicious (and gorgeous)! There are so many options for flavors and fillings, you can truly create a cake that is uniquely yours. We can't wait to enjoy it again on our 1 year anniversary!

What a pleasure it was to work with Ron!!!
He is so nice and the most talented and creative cake designer out there. On top of that the cake itself was beyond delicious.
All our guest ate it and some even had a second slice!
When we met Ron for the first time, we discussed every aspect of our wedding to design a cake that would be in line with the decor, theme and colors.
In my case, Ron got really inspired by my Jenny Packham dress and designed the whole cake to emulate the design of my dress. He put edible beading, sequins and gems on the cake. What girl can say no to a cake with gems on it?

A true work of art!!

Artistic and delicious cake. The baker took time to get to know us as a couple and our wedding theme in order to design a cake that celebrated our day. We appreciated the flexibility of choosing our fillings and cake.

I met with Ron Ben Israel to discuss ideas for our cake, he was a flurry of ideas and asked a lot of questions to make sure he could deliver on my vision for the cake. The execution was flawless and we were very happy with the end result.

This was the only vendor I considered for my wedding cake. I'd seen him on the Food Network and his cakes are beautiful. He certainly didn't disappoint us on our day and we are still getting compliments about our cake 2 months after the wedding. Some say its the best cake they've had at a wedding!!

His cakes are amazing!!! From the moment we walked into the bakery and met Ron and his staff to tasting it on the big day, everything was perfect. We wanted something that required alot of detail (specifically a replica of lace), and it was perfection. Highly recommend it. Pricey, but BEAUTIFUL WORK!!!

From the moment of our guests arrival to our reception hall, your eyes couldnt help but be mesmerized at the spectacular masterpiece that was our wedding cake! Ron did a magnificent job at all the detail work that matched my gown, to the flowers that were out centerpieces. Im still in awe! Thank you!

Ron Ben-Israel was a delight to work with. He produced the most beautiful wedding cake for me which tied in my bouquet and wedding colors very nicely. He spent a good amount of time with me during the initial appointment and was really open to any of my suggestions. A tad bit higher priced than I would have liked but well worth it. Some of my guests are still raving about the cake. I will definitely be using him again!!
