Nothing Bundt Cakes: Nothing But the Best!

Nothing Bundt Cakes

Bundt cakes evoke images of cozy times: family gatherings, church dinners, and bake sales. The distinctive ring-shaped mold became popular back in the 1950s after the cookware manufacturer Nordic Ware trademarked the name "Bundt" and began producing Bundt pans. Since then, Bundt cakes have remained a steady favorite, as there isn’t one recipe for the Bundt cakes – the sky’s the limit!

In 1997, two Las Vegas friends got together to help one another bake for their family and friends, and their Bundt cakes were the specialty of the house. The response was so overwhelming that Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz were asked to entertain more often. They soon realized that they were on to something. While there were plenty of bakeries around, it was clear to them that there was a need for fresh cakes made with the finest ingredients. The rest, as they say, is history. 

Today, the Nothing Bundt Cakes brand has grown into a successful franchise operation, with more than 260 bakeries across the country – and growing.  In the past, if you didn’t want to order online, you had to go to either Lafayette or Beaumont to get these great desserts. But all that will change soon, as the Lake Charles location is set to open in early 2019!

Sisters Nhi Pham and Trinh Pham opened the Beaumont bakery in 2015 and are excited about expanding to Lake Charles. "We’d both been fans of the cakes, and always had a Bundt cake at our celebrations long before we opened,” says Nhi. "Trinh was working in the Dallas area, which is where she would purchase cakes to bring home to our family. We decided to open a bakery to provide our community with another option for everyday celebrations, and are excited to offer the same great cakes in Lake Charles.”

Nothing Bundt Cakes are made with fresh eggs, real butter and cream cheese, and are available in single-serving "Bundtlets,” bite-sized Bundtinis (sold only by the dozen), as well as larger sizes depending on how many people are being served. They offer 8” and 10” cakes, along with a tiered cake that serves 26-30 guests. Customized corporate orders can be also be filled. 

Flavors include Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Classic Vanilla, Confetti, Red Velvet, White Chocolate Raspberry, Carrot, Lemon, Marble, Cinnamon Swirl and Pecan Praline, plus an extra, featured flavor every month. And there are cake designs for every occasion you can think of, all with a special whimsical touch. There are over 25 handcrafted cake designs for birthdays alone! Each bakery also offers greeting cards and gifts such as candles, cake utensils, serving platters, and more. 

Nothing Bundt Cakes may be a franchise, but each bakery retains the warmth of its home-kitchen roots. The company prides itself on the close relationship it fosters with its franchisees. And the proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the cake – as it continues to expand across the country. 

Nhi says that if construction runs smoothly, they should be ready to bake as early as January at the Nelson Road location. "We can’t wait to bake for you, and look forward to serving the community.
