My Black and White Birthday Cake is rich chocolate fudge and strawberry cake layered with
cream cheese filing and caramel buttercream, then covered with pure white fondant.
So I'll admit while making this cake I pictured myself presenting it to the judges for critique. I would most likely leave my pride on the floor in a pool of tears as they told me they hated me and my cake... but who knows maybe they would even enjoy it. EIther way I would still be a caker and they would still be them, and life would still go on....
Ron Ben-Israel. His website is www.weddingcakes.com. That alone clues you in to his greatness. Browse through his collections and its hard not to be inspired. His detail and flower work is what LaLaCake truly aspires to be! Unlike the two previously mentioned, Ron seems quiet and humble, a chef with amazing ability but soft disposition. (This all of course I've gathered from the still shots of him on his website) Working with fondant, and the gumpaste flowers, I am seeing that a gentle touch and patient spirit is what cake mastery requires.
