Winners of the critics’ choice award for Most Comforting Pound Cake in the 2009 Austin Chronicle Restaurant Poll, Nothing Bundt Cakes’ homegrown baking duo Dena and Debra hauls home trophies thanks to mouth-melting cakes crafted using natural ingredients and mom-style know-how. Choose from nine moistened cake flavors, such as ravishingly rich red velvet or swirlishly scrawled marble. Sink sweet teeth into the simple pleasures of a frosted cake ($18.50+), or let the bakery’s cakesmiths delve into their bag of tricks, ordering embellished desserts for celebrations ranging from dad’s Independence Day barbecue to mom’s bare-knuckle-boxing tournament (decorated cakes $29.50+). Regardless of flavor or appearance, every cake, from the pineapple-studded carrot cake to the streusel-like praline pecan, comes topped with thick petals of Nothing Bundt’s signature cream-cheese frosting. Sizes start as small as single-serving bundtlets ($3.99/each; $45/dozen) and grow all the way up to a two-tiered cake ($65) large enough to serve larger gatherings or use as lodging in Candy Land.
