Crumb Boss Recipes - Page 2

post #16 of 30

I liked watching crumb boss but then I just couldn't stand listening to her camerawoman anymore.  I wonder how many viewers she's lost due to that annoying person.

When I started scratch baking, I was a fan of Crumb Boss...  but all too many of the recipes were unreliable or just not to the standard I'm after.  I still think her Red Velvet and Carrot cakes are the best I've tried... but those are the only ones I use.

I used to find the videos entertaining and inspiring but I stopped watching entirely when they started making a habit of being rude and/or insulting other bakers!  They even named names in one video but eventually took it down...

Wow!! That's so unprofessional. Just the way she carried herself in the video I didn't agree with.

By no means am I suggesting that she should've been dressed to the nines but there are certain standards and lots of common sense ppl should possess and put to use when working in the food industry.

Never heard of Crumb Boss until now. I tried watching one of her video but i stopped it after the camera woman showed her sneakers. She was holding the shoe near the sprinkles and cakes! And they are pretty annoying too!

Having an opinion about a recipe is fine, but please refrain from posting personal attacks against anyone.  

 

Thank you.

Just wondering can anyone access Crumb Boss's recipes? I went to make the Vanilla Cake 2 for my cousin's birthday and I can't seem to see any of them! 

 

Or does anyone know of a good dense Vanilla Cake recipe that I can make a leopard print cake with?

Gretchen and Steph the Producer had a falling out.  Gretchen is re-doing many of her recipes and will be posting them on her Woodland Bakery blog.  You can find her on FB.  She is slowly but surely retyping her recipes.  And she will be shooting new videos, minus Steph. 

 

Some folks may have great success with one recipe, while others can't stand that same recipe.  We each have to find what we like and what works for us in our own particular environment. 

 

Gretchen has some great recipes and ideas.  She creates desserts that builds upon recipes, which requires a good amount of work, but the final product is awesome.

 

I'm going to try her SMBC, but right now, I'm really enjoying FromScratchSF's SMBC.

Hi - I was wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing Crumb Boss vanilla cake recipe. I tried looking for their Vanilla cake 2 recipe but no luck. I really do appreciate if you can. Thank you!

I much prefer the new videos, the cameraman asks much fewer questions, so the information comes through.

 

Her vanilla sponge cake, and red velvet are now standard recipes of mine.  The swiss buttercream is the best that I've tried, more sugar, less butter than traditional recipes.  

 

I'm someone that weighs ingredients and measures precisely, always following the recipe the first time before trying tweaks.

Gretchen has a lot of good recipes. She seems to be very serious about and puts a lot of love into her baking unfortunately Steph's personality shadowed that but now that she's doing her own thing you can see more of the real Gretchen shining threw. It's awesome of her to take her time to type up all her recipes and film them. I was the head pastry chef at full scale bakery like that and I honestly don't know where she finds the time and energy to do it!

I made Gretchen's SMBC this last week and I've now found my favorite SMBC.  It's a bit sweeter than normal SMBC but not nearly as sweet as ABC.  I mixed some of it up with peanut butter and oh my, it was fantastic!  I had some of it left over as well as some ganache.  I kept dipping my spoon in the ganache and then in the PB BC and it was like having  the big O in my mouth with each bite! icon_surprised.gif

I also came across Gretchen's SMBC and made two batches yesterday for a wedding cake and cupcakes.  I have tried many recipes over the past couple of years and this is my favourite!  And yes, I also couldn't keep my spoon out of the bowl.  :)

I tried Gretchen's SMBC 2 times now and it is by far the best tasting buttercream I have ever tried. 

 

I thought my old one was the best..but had issues with piping flowers with it cause it was too soft. 

 

The addition of the small amount of powdered sugar (compared to my old SMBC) was a concern to me...(being diabetic I wanted a little sugar as possible) but think it stabilized the SMBC enabling me to pipe flowers with it....but only after I let it sit in cooler over night, then sitting a few hours to warm up.  I didn't even bother to re whip it as she suggested.  It worked fine for me.
