Ron Ben-Israel blog

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I just stumbled across this blog, and it is great! I thought I'd share it with other members here.
http://nyccakegirl.com/

The blog is written by a staff member at Ron Ben-Israel cakes. She shares some tutorials and some tricks of the trade. I just found the blog, and here are a few tips I've found on it:

- Use a little vegetable shortening on a paring knife when cutting fondant at the base of a cake tier.
- You CAN refrigerate fondant covered cakes. Well, Ron Ben-Israel does. thumbs_up.gif
- tips for storing gum paste decorations
- organizing the caking process, etc.

Back to reading for me!

ya.. that's a good blog... however, I think Ron has industrial refrigerators that are not as humid so fondant cakes can be chilled in them without drooping or condensation.

Home fridges don't have that kind of temperature control!

This is a great bolg! Don't put your fondant coverd cakes in the fridge though. Ron has an expensive dehumidifing system in his coolers.
Being perky and kind is the is the only way to go! Now let's decorate and make someone happy.
I operate legally out of The Cake Studio. It would have been easier to be based at home but my little boys were eating the the fondant flowers and accents!

here's a direct quote from the blog:

'Rons tip for bakers Refrigerate your completed cake overnight in a sealed cardboard box, not only does the box keep the cake protected, dry and the humidity away from the fondant, the box is also an excellent insulator to help keep the cake cold for delivery purposes.'

If you're doing it in your home fridge it also helps to wrap your box with plastic to help control humidity as well. It can be done.

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

Does he not put a dam on his cakes when filling them? From the pictures it looks like there's no dam, he just keeps them chilled.

I've been reading the blog for quite some time but was disappointed last week to see the post on the Hungry Caterpillar cake. I was shocked to see such a famous cake artist make a copyrighted cake. Maybe he got permission but I would've thought that would have been mentioned. Thoughts?

Wires also go into cakes there. Check out the bow assembly. Everyone does things differently. You just have to find your comfort zone and do your best.
If you live in a humid climate, as I do boxing and wrapping will not save your cakes from the humidity if you put your cakes in the fridge.
In any cake you really have to try things out and see if they work for you:0)
