Who makes Cincinnati’s best bread loaf, cookie, or delicious slice of cake? Come taste for yourself!

The Great Cincinnati Bake-Off is a celebration of what Cincinnatians can do in their ovens! Professionals and amateurs will compete in four mouthwatering categories: bread, cookies and brownies, pie, and cake decorated in the spirit of Cincinnati Fun. Pastry experts will select the tastiest entries to receive the “Golden Rolling Pin” in each bracket. Winners will be recognized at a celebration of culinary talent on Thursday, October 20, 6–9 p.m. at The Midwest Culinary Institute at Cincinnati State. Guests will have the opportunity to sample sweet and savory treats from the city’s most beloved local bakeries. These sweets really are the best of the best!
