Bundt Cake Joy



The other day at work (if you recall, I'm working a part-time temporary job through January helping out my previous employer during their busy time and doing some clean-up)...

Anyway, at work, I heard my coworker say something about being excited about getting a bundt cake.

I stopped for a second. A what?

"bundt" cake co-worker and I!
(yeah, not a fab hair day for me....)
Figuring I heard her wrong, because who would be talking about a bundt cake like it was some sort of big deal? I shrugged my shoulders and moved on.

A few days later, I was going out to lunch with 2 coworkers (including the bundt cake one... she'll totally appreciate me referring to her as that!) and she noted that she had to stop by the bundt cake place on her way back.

I laughed. The WHAT place? They have a place specifically for bundt cakes? How ridiculous was that?

She assured me that the bundt cakes were phenomenal and I shouldn't knock it 'till I tried it.

As we pulled up to the store, she joked, "You should totally blog about bundt cakes, Krista."


Well...

I took out my handy dandy camera phone and starting snapping some pictures to be silly.

And oh my goodness.

I feel head-over-heels in love with the bundt cake place!

More aptly, it is "Nothing Bundt Cakes."

Who would have thought someone would make a store JUST for bundt cakes? And that it would be GOOD?

But oh-ma-goodness. It IS good! In my personal opinion, it puts all the cupcake places to shame. I am a cake fan, but really am not a lover of the gob of icing like you get at the cupcake places.

But at the Bundt cake place, you get this fabulously moist cake with the perfect amount of frosting draped over the cake and filling the "hole."

In the same vein as my love of sandwich puns, the possible bundt puns are endless!

What's even more super cool is that on this particular day when we visited the Bundt cake place, let's just say work was a wee bit stressful.

Their menu of specialty bundt cakes!
We TOTALLY found our joy that day in the way of a few extra calories, some silly pictures, and very delicious bundt cakes.

Who'da thought, huh?

(and no, they don't know me, aren't paying me to say nice things, and probably have no clue of my blog. HA. I just really liked their bundt cakes! I looked on their website, and they have 2 in the Nashville area and a bunch others in other states! I'd HIGHLY suggest you see if there is one near you

Discussion: What's your guilty pleasure food??

I was introduced to them last year and love them!!! And I particularly love your little bundt cake hat in the picture with your friend! :)

My guilty pleasure food is anything sweet that comes out of my oven! I love to bake and even more than that, I love to eat what I've baked. Several friends have suggested I start selling some of my baked goods...I'd still get to bake, I wouldn't end up eating everything I baked, AND I'd get to make a little money. Sounds like a win-win idea!

Sherrinda, i didn't even plan that! I think it suits me, huh!!

Sherrinda Ketchersid said...

LOL...suits you perfectly!

I had no idea they had bakeries devoted just to bundt cakes. Sorry, but it always makes me think of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Oh my goodness, I have a lot of sweets weaknesses when it comes to food. Love those Italian rainbow cookies they have around Christmas time at a bakery around here. And thankfully my brother only comes around a few times a year, he's a chef and he makes just plain steak and potatoes that is to die for. Nothing on the steak at all, just cooked perfectly.

We have a similar place here in Wichita, Kansas called Monica's Bundt Cake Company (monicasbundtcakeco.com). The only thing I don't like about them is that they are a bit expensive. But it is close to my work, so we occasionally go there for birthday cakes. Mmmmm......

We ordered one of their cakes for a co-workers last night at work and we all loved it. Coming from a line of great cake bakers, it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to cakes, but their cakes certainly hit the mark!
