Crispy Cranbaker, adored for his famous Cran Cakes, has a generous and friendly spirt. Crispy's Bakery on Rosecranz Lane is world renowned for his crantastic Cran Cakes, for the taste and the smell. Every morning when Crispy bakes his cakes, the aroma travels around the world. It is every Cran's dream to one day travel to Cran Diego to taste the cakes and be part of Cran Diego's growing community. He is a mentor to his younger Kitcheners, teaching them his newest recipes, and occasionally throwing in some advice on life and love. Important business happens at Crispy's. The Council of Cranz meets regularly to discuss Cran relations and Cran Diego development.
Cran Strolling is the youngest of the Cranz. He can't walk yet, but he manages to escape from his crib before dawn. All by himself, he strolls down Rosecranz Lane to Crispy's Bakery.

Although Cran Strolling has a vision and works hard, he is a troublemaker, always pulling pranks on Crispy and his Kitcheners. Crispy finds his pranks amusing, but Cran Strolling runs the risk of pushing Crispy too far.

As part of his practice, he uses incense and essential oils.
