It's a bakery dedicated to one type of cake: the classic bundt. This week, Houston welcomes the newest location of Nothing Bundt Cakes to The Woodlands Crossing Shopping Center right next door to the new Trader Joe's. While this location of Nothing Bundt Cakes has already opened up shop, the grand opening will be celebrated this Friday and Saturday, August 24 and 25.
Owner Bindya Patel says she is excited to be a part of The Woodlands and wants all of her customers to be as excited as she is.
"It's a fun atmosphere to come into our store ... we have so many sizes [of cakes] to offer," Patel says.
Nothing Bundt Cakes offers a variety of sizes, depending on the occasion. You can purchase anything from a large tiered cake serving 26 people to a dozen bundtini cakes for the office. The bakery has nine different flavors available, with one feature flavor each month, this month being white chocolate blueberry. Each cake is frosted with the same signature butter cream cheese frosting, with either their signature petal design or trademark drizzle.
Patel says her favorite flavor is the white chocolate raspberry bundt cake. "When you just bite into it, it all melts in your mouth," she says.
Whether your cake is for a birthday, a wedding or just because, you can personalize each cake with a flag stating what the occasion is and a card with a personal message.
The Woodlands location has selected a nonprofit organization, Montgomery County Youth Services, to which they will donate 20 percent of all the proceeds collected on their grand opening day, August 24. The next day, the location will be giving free bundtlets, the single-serving cakes, for one year to the first 50 customers who purchase an item in store.
Each day, the store offers samples of rotating cake flavors. You can sit down and enjoy a bundtlet, or order a personal bundt cake for your next party or celebration. With 40 designs to choose from, there's a bundt cake for any occasion.
