Vote online for Grit Rambusch, local pastry chef and owner of Crumbles and Cream Kaffeehaus.
The hunt is on for this year’s top baker, and Plant City’s Crumbles and Cream Kaffeehaus owner Grit Rambusch is hoping to land the top prize.
The Greatest Baker is an online public voting competition run by celebrity bakers Alice Fervonia and Sophie Faldo, both finalists from previous seasons of The Great British Bake Off.
The winner will take home the title, $10,000 in prizes and a two-page article in “Bake from Scratch” magazine.
“The money and the feature article would be extremely helpful as I continue to grow my business,” Rambusch said.
Her growing business needs more storage space, a dough sheeter and the ability to take orders online.
Voting began on Monday, October 24 and will continue until Thursday, November 3 at 7 p.m. PDT, when the contest will be limited to the 20 entrants with the most votes. A winner will be selected on December 29.
Anyone who has visited his bakery, located downtown at 113 South Evers Street, knows that his delicious baked goods, cakes and pastries, created with a German twist, are worthy of awards. Its signature bake is prasselkuchen, a buttery puff pastry with a thin layer of homemade cranberry jam, topped with crispy yet tender vanilla butter and drizzled with freshly squeezed lemon juice glaze after it comes out of the oven. She’s also taking orders for holiday baked goods, including cinnamon rolls with cream cheese filling, apples and cranberries, buns, gingerbread, pumpkin buns and stollen, which must sit for weeks before they can be eaten. Yum.
