Today's six-flavored Groupon gets you a well-built bundt—freshly baked and made-from-scratch—from madCakes, a family-owned-and-operated bakery of delicious bundts. This large bundt serves 16–22 people; choose from six tried-and-true flavors, plus seasonal specialties, such as pumpkin and rum. It's best to come bearing bundts to Thanksgivings, Christmases, and New Yearses, but bundts also beam beatifically on small children's pet's birthdays and Secretary's Day, more appropriately called Administrative Professionals Day.
Choose from cinnamon swirl, double chocolate chip, Italian cream, red velvet, white chocolate, and zesty lemon. Pumpkin-flavored bundts are available October through November, and rum bundts are begot in December. MadCakes' head chef studied at pastry schools and baked at Rather Sweet Bakery and Central Market catering, so she knows how to bake a champion bundt, one more moist and delicious than even the most delicious bundts baked by the personal bundt-bakers of Hollywood stars.
Bundts are more popular than fruitcakes, popcorn canisters, and solid-gold dinosaurs for the holidays because in addition to tasting delicious, bundts have a hollow cavity in their centers that can be covered up with a thin layer of icing to camouflage a stash of valuable goods. MadCakes can deliver the large bundt to your friend, relative, or bundt-loving loved one in the Austin area for an additional delivery charge of $12.50 to $18. Get this bundt as a companion for your current bundt, or take the bundt to your favorite worldwide destinations and get your photograph taken with this bundt and your current bundt or a foreign bundt. MadCakes can ice a celebratory message onto your cake or add bows for an additional charge (bows are $5 to $10). Watch out for its new bundt-bearing mobile treat truck that's been trucking around town bringing much-needed bakery treats to Austin.
MadCakes has been reviewed by Austin Monthly, and it won Best Chocolate Cake or Pie in the 2007 Austin Chocolate Festival:
- The story of madCakes began when a California social worker decided to finally follow her passion and enroll in the Culinary Institute of America to become a pasty chef...All of the cakes, dessert bars and cookies are made from scratch with real butter and whole milk products, fresh fruit, natural flavorings and a 40-percent to 50--percent semi-sweet chocolate; you won't find anything artificial or low in fat here. The bundt-shaped cakes topped with rivulets of cream cheese/buttercream frosting are surprisingly light, with no one flavor overpowering the other. – Marsha Mann, Austin Monthly
- I absolutely love love love y'all! I drive all the way from Buda to come to your bakery! – Leilah, madCakes customer testimonial
- Even the Senator -- who doesn’t often eat sweets -- loved it. – Susan, madCakes customer testimonial
- Just to let you know that your cake was the hit of the baby shower. It was absolutely orgasmic. – Sandra Meek, madCakes customer testimonial
How Many Cakes Say “I Love You”?
Bundt cakes make great holiday gifts, but giving your favorite people only one cake apiece just won’t do. Here’s how many bundt cakes you need to give to different people to make their holiday dreams come true:
Grandma, 40 cakes: One for each year of her life, divided by two, multiplied by the number of times you’ve disappointed her by not having children.
Postman, 15 cakes: One for each time you’ve almost called him Paul but stopped because you’re not 100% sure that’s his name.
Office Crush, 1 cake: Undelivered.
Casting Agents, 1 cake each: A single bundt cake is enough to remind agents that you’re still alive and that, despite the accident, you’re still “in Batman shape.”
