Edible Treasure!

Ron Ben Israel is a cake decorator from New York City. He's known for making insanely beautiful, high end cakes. His creations are covered with thousands of handmade candy jewels that are made of sugar but sparkle like treasure. The best part is, that these cakes apparently taste amazing too, as the artist prides himself on using only the finest ingredients.

Please ignore the annoying title of this show, and the repeated, gentrified use of the word bling. Skip to 2:16 to get right into it. These cakes are pretty unbelievable. They look like they're right out of a fantastical renaissance feast.

I really love how excited and enthusiastic this guy is about his job. His enthusiasm for disco is also pretty great. I think the one at 6:35 is my favorite. All those gorgeous flowers are hand crafted out of sugar! Wow.
