Local Yummies: Nothing Bundt Cakes

This post is waaay overdue. Due to wrapping up summer school, there was no time for me to blog or bake. *Gasp!* I apologize for the short hiatus, but two 17-week classes crammed into 6 weeks? Yeah, I was working my butt off. But I'm done with school (for now)! You know what that means...YUMMIES!!! Woo!

So, here's the skinny: I don't really like red velvet cake all that much. I know, that's such a freakin' travesty. My problem with it just tastes like chocolate. I mean, really, I've bought that Duncan Hines box of red velvet cake mix a few times, in hopes that maybe it'll turn out different, tasting like something AMAZING.... No dice. Tastes like chocolate, sorry.

And the thing is, I always try it at different places in hopes of finding one that I actually like. Red velvet cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory? No thanks. Red velvet cupcakes from Icing on the Cupcake? I'll pass. Mini red velvet cupcakes from my work? No. You'd think I'd learn by now, right? My problem is I want to like it, really I do. But nothing I've tried so far has lived up to the hype.

Until recently.
This my friends, is the red velvet cake in question. And not just any red velvet cake. No, this is a baby bundt red velvet cake. AKA- "Bundtlet". Freakin'. Adorable. My family got free bundlet coupons from running our first 5K back in April, for a local bundt cake shop called Nothing Bundt Cakes. Apparently they have stores all over the states, and let me tell you, you MUST  give them a try because their cakes are soooo TASTY. And the shop itself is so quaint and adorable, I could spend FOREVER in there. 

Gah, they're just too cute! Here are the red velvet, marble and chocolate chocolate chip bundlets we got, and boy were they all delish! Too good not to share with you guys!

There you have it, witnessing my change from red-velvet-skeptic to "believer" in the tasty red velvet....however rare such an occurrence may be. If you come across a local Nothing Bundt Cakes, stop in and give them a try!! I totally recommend the red velvet bundlet!

Doesn't hurt that it's cute. ;)
