Ron Ben-Israel          

Former host of "Sweet Genius" on the Food Network

As chef-owner of Ron Ben-Israel Cakes, one of the countrys finest couture cake studios, Ron Ben-Israel has made cakes that have been hand-delivered to destinations throughout the continental U.S. and abroad.

Ron started his confectionery adventures after a 15-year career as a professional modern dancer.

Upon retiring from performing with companies spanning three continents, he incorporated his art training, military background and ballet regime into the discipline of pastry arts.

After Ron arrived in New York City, his cakes were discovered by Martha Stewart while on display in the windows of Mikimoto on Fifth Avenue.

In 1999 he established his flagship design studio and bakery in Manhattans fashionable SoHo neighborhood.

Ron is a visiting master pastry instructor at the International Culinary Center in New York City and has been awarded prestigious gold medals for his confectionery achievements.
