Walk into Nothing Bundt Cakes in Harker Heights and you immediately go into sensory overload. As soon as you open the door you are met with the aroma of freshly baked cakes of various flavors.
Standing in front of the bakery case there is an assortment of Bundt cakes, bundtlettes (those all too-tempting individual cakes) and the sold-by-the-dozen bundtinis. Which one do you choose?
Around the store are colorful displays with suggested decorations. But Bundt cakes are not just for birthday parties and individuals. Today’s brides have taken notice and are now choosing Bundt cakes for their wedding.
Traditional round or square tiered cakes are still popular, now with added personalization that reflects a bride and groom’s personas. But the new cake in town is the Bundt.
Nothing Bundt Cakes creates made-from-scratch Bundt cakes of various sizes and in a variety of flavors. General Manager Genesis Thompson said she gets a lot of requests for wedding cakes, as well as bundtlettes and bundtinis.
Wedding cakes are two-tiered and serve 20 to 25 people.
Thompson said white chocolate raspberry and red velvet are a favorite pairing, as are marble and cinnamon. “Brides can choose from any of the flavors we have,” Thompson said.
Today’s brides like to give their guests variety and now include dessert or sweet tables at their receptions.
“Popular right now is the bundtini towers, a full-size cake surrounded by bundtinis, or bundtinis by the dozen,” Thompson said. “We prepared 200 dozen for one wedding.”
Wedding cakes are decorated with their standard, cream cheese frosting or drizzle frosting, which Thompson said is popular with brides.
“It creates center lines all around the cake giving it a tear-drop kind of look,” she said.
Thompson said a 24-hour-notice is optimal, but in an emergency, she can do a day-of cake. There is no deposit required and cakes must be paid for in full at time of order or pick up.
“Because we make our cakes here, everything is ready to go. We can do a bridal tasting for flavors one week in advance. We provide one dozen bundtinis and eight bundtlettes of various flavors and a Bundt of their choice for $18.50, which is applied to the wedding cake upon order,” Thompson said.
“The No. 1 thing is everything here is made daily and baked fresh. You are getting a high-quality cake that melts in your mouth. It is something different and unique.”
Nothing Bundt Cakes offers wedding packages for 150 or 250 guests. Their free delivery reaches from Copperas Cove to Salado.
