As much as I can be a bit of a piggy when it comes to savory eats, thankfully I don’t have a super-strong sweet tooth! But every now and then, the temptation for sweets strike and it’s time to grab a cupcake or splurge at fave lucettegrace. And while cupcakes and pastries are great, what about bundt cakes? Yeah, I know they haven’t been that popular or trendy recently but eventually all the 5-star online reviews for Nothing Bundt Cakes caught my eye.
(Note: Nothing Bundt Cakes has two new locations in Durham and Morrisville) Located in the Park West Village plaza across from Goodybox Cupcakes, Nothing Bundt Cakes presents a pretty innocuous front face. Inside the space is small and tidy with a glass case of full-size bundt cakes, bundlets (single-serving) and bundtinis (bite-size). There are about 10 different flavors for sale today ranging from red velvet, lemon, chocolate-chocolate, white chocolate raspberry and more. At $3.99 per bundtlet, it’s certainly not cheap but right in line with cupcake prices in the area. I order up 5 different bundtlets with my GroupOn and service is quite good for this quick transaction.
Back at home I check out my sweet bundt shwag. After giving away two bundlets, there’s still plenty to eat with a lemon, red velvet and white chocolate. They are pretty sizable cakes and drizzled heavily with cream-cheese frosting so you’re best off keeping them refrigerated. Mentally I rationalize that I’m looking at “single-serving” portions so I dive right in with a spoon. Whoa, these bundt cakes are super moist and have great flavor on the cake. Adding in the soft sweet frosting takes it up another notch and before long, most of bundlet is gone. I save my other two cakes for another day and they are equally good even after 36 hours.
And while Nothing But Bundts is certainly like a cupcake on steroids due to their size, they are different. The flavor combos are a bit simpler given the standard frosting and they aren’t filled so their strengths are more about their size and wonderful cake. In the end, I would probably prefer a cupcake over bundt cakes but these sweets are pretty durn good. And if you like cream cheese frosting you’ll be in seventh heaven here! So thank you Nothing But Bundts for the sweet escape you provide me. You may be just bundts but in my world, that’s plenty good!
