creature comforts amidst the storms: nothing bundt cakes, santa monica…

Nothing Bundt Cakes, Santa Monica

Dallas is a flash of glittery lights and cars driving against the shoulder. I know this because I’m staring out the window of a United terminal, watching cars drive. It’s dawn and I’m waiting for another delayed plane in the hopes of coming home. This journey has truly been epic — three planes and a train in twelve hours — but I’m hopeful that I’ll make it home to keep my kitty company through the storm. The only comfort amidst the frenzy is the memory of my exquisite BUNDT CAKE.

You heard me. A BUNDT CAKE.

Before the insanity that was my travel schedule (oh the joys of traveling from Los Angeles to New York during a hurricane!), I discovered Nothing Bundt Cakes, by happenstance, whilst cruising Montana. Launched in 2007 by two home bakers who were evangelical about using the finest ingredients, Nothing Bundt Cakes serves up homemade bundt cakes, mini bundts and scores of goodies for baking and crafting.

Nothing Bundt Cakes believes in living colorfully and deliciously through a whimsical shop display, blooms adorning their cakes’ center, and staff who adore their goods just as much as I do. Did I mentioned that I had to almost sport a straightjacket I could barely control myself in front of the samples. However, I exercised extraordinary restraint and settled on a marble bundt amidst Chocolate Chocolate Chip, White White Chocolate, Red Velvet, White Chocolate Raspberry, Carrot, Lemon, Marble, Cinnamon Swirl and Pecan Praline. OH MY!!!

So if you’re lucky enough to live on the West Coast, I implore you to RUN LIKE A MAD WOMAN to Nothing Bundt Cake.
