My good friend Pastry Chef Gretchen Price is a former owner of Woodland Bakery in Chatham, NJ. She also operated two former web blog one as CrumbBoss.com and the other was WoodlandBakeryBlog.com. New site is Gretchen’s Bakery. You will find some of the best recipes on the internet. Gretchen also sell several cake decorating kits which I reviewed when she was “Crumb Boss” several years back.

While the information about the kits has changed (where to get them) the basic content remains the same and the technique to decorate cupcakes is unchanged
