In the class we’ll explore non-traditional applications of classic desserts and reimagine them through inventive and artistic plating methods. With help from James Avant IV of OCD Cakes, you’ll tap into your creative side (both in aesthetics and flavor) while reinventing timeless desserts like apple pie, strawberry shortcake and banana pudding. Each participant will bake, plate each individual dish and taste their creations!
James Avant IV is the founder and owner of Obsessive Cake Disorder (OCD) Cakes. OCD Cakes, a small bites pastry shop, exists to take a bite out of the stigma surrounding mental health through the use of cake; a simple staple that has an emotional link to many of our experiences. In the moment we enjoy cake and other sweet treats, negative emotions and sentiments are scarce and we relish in the company and positive emotions which surround us.
Obsessive Cake Disorder describes the delicious disorder we all have; an obsession over great looking and tasting pastries! Located in Over the Rhine in Cincinnati, OH, the algorithm we follow is simple: your cake obsession + our products = satisfaction. Our attention to detail, innovation in taste and community outreach will make you feel good about what you’re eating and keep you coming back for more!
