Too small to be a lifeguard, too big to be a guinea pig's earring, the bundt cake is best enjoyed prior to testing such alternative uses. Apply the scientific method to guessing ingredients and savoring sweet flavors with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of beautifully baked creations at Nothing Bundt Cakes from either their Thousand Oaks or West Hills locations.
Nothing Bundt Cakes mixes fresh eggs, genuine butter, and cream cheese into rounded risers worthy of slapping up on Mom's fridge. Choose from nine moistened cake flavors, such as ravishingly rich red velvet or swirlishly scrawled marble. Lemon bundt cake goes particularly well with tea parties attended largely by rabbits, mice, eccentric haberdashers, and confused British girls, and raging chocoholics can get a day’s worth of fixes with the moist and decadent chocolate chocolate chip. Every cake, from the pineapple-studded carrot cake to the streusel-like pecan praline, comes topped with thick petals of Nothing Bundt’s signature cream-cheese frosting. Sizes start as small as a single serving (wee bundtlets are $3.99 each, $45 per dozen) and go all the way up to a two-tiered cake ($65, serves about 26) that resembles a frosted snowman, which is perfect for any autonomous ice monster's first birthday. Split the menu down the middle with an eight-inch frosted bundt-in-a-box ($29.50 decorated).
Homegrown baking-and-decorating dynamic duo Dena and Debra began their bundtiful business to spread their love of rounded cakes throughout the formerly flat-cake world. Further their quest by shipping out a magnificently molded bundt cake to Dad for an early Father's Day gift, to Santa Claus on Christmas in March, or to the Lincoln Memorial on any Wednesday.
Nothing Bundt Cakes has received local and national media coverage, including a feature in Mouthing Off, the Food & Wine magazine blog. Celebrities, including Alice Cooper, are fans of the treats. Yelpers give the Thousand Oaks location an average of 4.5 stars.
- Despite its airplane time, the cake we got was moist, dark chocolatey brown, crumbly and not too sweet, and arrived with a squeeze bottle full of smooth cream-cheese frosting to drizzle over the top. – Emily Kaiser, Mouthing Off, Food & Wine
- Not too sweet, and just a perfect size to share with someone for a light dessert, or save for yourself for a special treat. – Samantha M., Yelp
Nothing Bundt Cakes
In 1997, friends Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz set out to create a luscious, melt-in-your-mouth bundt cake. What began as an endeavor in their own home kitchens soon blossomed into a bustling business with bakeries in 21 states. Rich cocoa browns and soft pastels lend a nostalgic feel to each bakery, where every day ovens warm up cake batter made from fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese. Flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, red velvet, and white-chocolate raspberry are favorite staples, and a new seasonal flavor makes a guest appearance each month. Cakes come in several sizes, from the standard 8- or 10-inch bundt to the single-serving bundtlet and the bite-size bundtini, all crowned with signature cream cheese frosting.
