Cakes, like jack-o'-lanterns, must be sliced and set on fire before they can be enjoyed. Set your palate aglow with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods at Nothing Bundt Cakes.
Mike and Rima Rothweiler, the husband-and-wife proprietors of the local Nothing Bundt Cakes franchise, craft ring-shaped sweets fit for any occasion. Serving eight people or serving as an ineffectual life preserver for one, an 8-inch frosted cake ($18.50+) comes in flavors such as marble, lemon, or red velvet. Bakers beat fresh eggs and real butter into each batch of batter, forming a dozen tiny cupcake-like bundtinis ($16.50+) or individual-size bundtlets ($3.99+). Custom decorations, including silk flowers, cellophane wrapping, and ransom notes baked into cakes, incur additional fees.

Juliette Lewis, Alice Cooper, and Patti Labelle. Each of them have been photographed cozying up to one of Nothing Bundt Cakes' creations. This likely seems incredible to founders Dena Tripp and Debra Shwetz, who started the business in 1997 fueled by a nostalgic love for bundt cakes. In their home kitchens, the two friends whipped up batch after batch of variously flavored bundts, swirling eggs and real butter into flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, cinnamon swirl, and red velvet. Once they had perfected the recipe, they launched their creations directly into the mouths of a delighted public.
The aromas of these fresh-baked cakes now fill their shops across the country. Here, bakers handcraft desserts that range from the bite-size "Bundtlets" to multitiered bundt cakes. They then adorn these treats with icing and decorations for special occasions such as anniversaries and hit-your-friends-with-a-cake day. However, Nothing Bundt Cakes has more to offer its customers than just dessert. Filled with rich browns, pastels, and homey furniture, the store's retail section brims with gifts such as cards and cake tins.
