As part of the anniversary celebration, Nashville-area co-owner Lynne Warne invited me in to try out some samples. They offer bundtinis (two- to four-bite size little bundts sold by the dozen), bundtlets (4-inch mini bundt cakes large enough to easily feed two adults, though they call them "single servings") and their regular bundt cakes that come in eight- and ten-inch sizes (and can be tiered to feed more people).
Not one to turn down free cake, I stopped by this week. They had in-store samples already set out of the white chocolate blueberry. I was hesitant, since I don’t care much for white chocolate, but this cake was fantastic. And moist. So moist. (Apologies to those who hate that word, but there’s no better word in this case.) I highly recommend it. However, you’ll need to go in before the end of this week since it’s just a featured flavor which will change to the insanely popular pumpkin spice starting Monday (which is Oct. 1 — can you believe it?).
From there, I moved on to red velvet (uncharacteristically moist), lemon (excellent flavor), chocolate chocolate chip (decadent, but not too rich), white chocolate raspberry (almost as good as the blueberry), and cinnamon swirl (like the best coffee cake ever). Each one was topped with their signature butter-cream-cheese frosting and were all just as moist and delicious as the first. So moist, in fact, that little water droplets formed in the bundtlet containers I took home. Friends, that is not typical of a bakery cake.
Little was revealed about the secret to this delicious cake except that all the cakes are made in the store fresh each day from tried-and-true recipes from the original bundt bakers that started out in Las Vegas.
As mentioned, Nothing Bundt Cakes delivers locally, but they get a brisk business in-store as well. For last-minute shoppers, they also sell cards and unique, fun gifts for just about any occasion as well as all the accessories (plates, napkins, forks, and candles) you need for a party, large or small. The store features a large catalog for you to peruse all the many designs. One of the managers also told me about some really fun ways people have served combinations of bundts and bundtinis for weddings.
Also, if you stop by the store, be sure to sign up for the "Bundt Buzz." It's their email program to keep customers up to date on featured flavors and other news. Many of the emails include coupons and chances to win free cakes, too.
