You recognize Ron Ben-Israel—you have seen him on TV frequently. You won’t understand that he has become on the leading edge of a wedding cake fashion borne these days incredibly: darkish-colored wedding cakes.
It changed into “a massive, huge revolution” when he developed black fondant for his clients a few years ago. People had been struck by using the beauty of a marriage cake that became so conventional in a few ways and so, so no longer in others. “I can take the normal structure of a cake, degrees sitting one on top of the other, and so on., and completely make it uncommon and Avant grade by using converting the color or the texture,” Ron tells Delish. He himself is partial to a suitable grey cake, calling them “elegant.”
