Location: 2710 Arapahoe Avenue
Specialty: Literally nothing bundt cakes
When I hear the phrase “bundt cake” all I can think about is the scene in the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” where the Greek mother has no idea what a bundt cake is and cannot pronounce the word.
Anyways, this stop on our bakery tour took us to Nothing Bundt Cakes, a cute little shop on Arapahoe with great displays of cute cakes and a few other holiday-themed products. They literally have nothing but bundt cakes at this shop in a variety of sizes: tiny bundtinis, bundtlets, and two larger ones. Upon our arrival we were greeted very warmly by the manager, Deana, who answered all of our questions about the bakery.
The bundt cakes come in a variety of flavors; the most popular are chocolate chocolate chip, white chocolate raspberry, and red velvet. All the flavors are laid out in a display case and look so delicious we had a hard time choosing! In addition to all their regular flavors they also have a rotating monthly flavor and since it is fall…can you guess what that flavor is?? It has a certain orange squash in the title. The pumpkin spice was not overwhelmingly spiced, which is just how I like it in a cake, and their signature cream cheese frosting was a perfect complement to the moist cake.
Eventually we settled on a bundtini of white chocolate raspberry to share with our classmates (we can’t eat at all these bakeries and not share a little!). The shop does not have an area to sit, because it caters mostly to taking larger cakes away from the shop, and it was cold outside so we didn’t want to sit. Once we got back to CU and tried it, we realized it was a delicious and moist cake with tiny pockets of raspberry that were the perfect relief to the sweet cake and frosting. Yum.
Nothing Bundt Cakes is a great Boulder bakery, and in addition to picking up little cakes at the shop, you can purchase the larger ones on the spot for parties or birthdays or just to have a whole cake. We highly recommend either the white chocolate raspberry or the pumpkin spice if you go soon!
