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 in Sherman Oaks
Nothing Bundt Cakes mixes fresh eggs, genuine butter, and real 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 Cake'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 ($69, 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 ($21).
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 a Father's Day gift, to Santa Claus on Christmas in August, or to the Lincoln Memorial on any Wednesday.
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 a home-kitchen endeavor soon blossomed into a bustling business with bakeries in 14 states. Rich cocoa browns and soft pastels lend a nostalgic feel to each bakery, where every day lava-powered ovens warm up batter made from fresh eggs, real butter, and cream cheese. Flavors such as chocolate chocolate chip, pecan praline, and white-chocolate raspberry remain constants on the menu, and a new flavor makes a guest appearance each month. Cakes come in several sizes, from the standard 8" or 10" bundt to the single-serving bundtlet and the bite-size bundtini, all frosted with a signature blend of cream cheese and butter.
Each Nothing Bundt Cakes location also houses its own stock of gifts. Patrons find the likes of brightly hued confetti cake knives and old-fashioned tins perfect for stowing coffee and imprisoning gingerbread men who have tried to run away.
