Kiss My Bundt

Did you know that November 15 was National Bundt Day?  Well, I wouldn't have known either, except that a little local bakery named Kiss My Bundt was offering free bundt samples in honor of the, ahem, holiday.  And if there's one thing I like as much as quality baked goods, it's word play and punny references.  So, obviously, I had to stop by and try the bundts.

Why yes, these are mini red velvet bundt cakes



My reaction?  MMMMMMohmyfreakinggoodnessthisisyuuuuuuuuuuuuuumy. Moist, rich cake with perfect frosting, served in cupcake-sized servings. We tried the red velvet, 7-up, and lemon drop cakes, and all were mouth-wateringly delicious.  The 30+ flavor menu rotates daily, while always offering their bestselling "Daily 8," so you never know quite what you'll find when you arrive at the shop.  What you do know is that you'll have access to ample amounts of their southern-inspired confections.  Even if the red velvet doesn't look like the cakes you might have grown up with, the flavor would do a Southern baker proud. (um, have I mentioned that red velvet is my absolute favorite cake?  And that I'm having some at my wedding?  In other words, I know my red velvet, and this stuff was delicious.)  Vegans should note that Kiss My Bundt also makes 100% vegan red velvet bundts.

The bakery focuses on bundt cakes in three sizes: Mini Bundts at $2.50 each (about the size of a homemade cupcake), Baby Bundts at $4 each (about the size of a Sprinkles cupcake) and Big Ol' Bundts for $32 each (the size you might make in a bundt pan at home). They also offer other Southern-infused confections but really, I can't speak to those.  I ate the bundts.

So if you're on the "I hate cupcake" bandwagon (side note: I don't understand and I don't accept the cupcakes-are-a-played-out-trend silliness) but you're still loathe to pay $$$ for a slice of fancy wedding cake, this might offer a delicious cake alternative solution.  I promise that the Kiss My Bundt cupcake tree full of mini-bundts could easily rival any "trendy" cupcake wedding display, making mini-bundts a very viable non-cupcake, non-fondant, completely awesome wedding dessert option.
