THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD: cake people and frosting people. I am a frosting person who is rarely impressed by cake. But what if there was a place that made cakes and frosting so scrumptious that everyone was satisfied?
Cue the red velvet bundt from the sweet little bakeshop chain Nothing Bundt Cakes. A Southern classic, this cake is not only celebratory-looking and a cheerful, holiday red, but it’s actually delicious. Flash and flavor? Yes, please. Real butter and buttermilk make for a rich batter dotted with semi-sweet chocolate chips to enhance the cocoa base. I would eat this cake without the frosting, it’s that good. But the frosting? Cream cheese heaven so delightful you might want to close your eyes and sigh. Whether you’re serving a crowd or looking for a little treat just because, Nothing Bundt Cake bakes a variety of sizes. Not a chocolate fan? Try the classic vanilla or carrot cake. 3300 S. College Ave., Suite 180, 970-229-6161,
