We’re doing it! ๐Ÿ˜„ Canceled the cake tasting we had scheduled after trying these. I didn’t know this place existed until I saw another thread a couple days ago. I’m not a big cake fan but they have cream cheese frosting, which is the only kind I like, cake is delicious and I like that everyone will have a lot of flavors to choose from. Variety is always nice. I found this pic online and we’ll likely do something similar with metal tier stands. I’d be fine with all bundtinis but Fiance wants to do the cake cutting thing. Our wedding is casual but I don’t see why this wouldn’t work for a formal event. ๐Ÿค” Tastes better than any wedding cake I’ve had so far which to me is more important than how it looks but it depends on you.

Yessssss. Our friends did that for their wedding and it was amazing. I’m pretty sure our ‘group’ of friends had like 20 between the 5 of us haha. Those things are magically delicious!

socalgirl1689 :  We’re going to have a one tier for cutting and have enough bundtinis so each of our 40 guests get at least three if they want. Total comes out to about $223. Two per guest would probably be fine but they are really good and I had four to myself. ๐Ÿ™ˆ Some of the flavors are seasonal but we loved carrot, white chocolate raspberry, red velvet, marble, lemon and chocolate. Might tweak the list a bit depending on what else is available for September.

I think it’s a great idea. I mean, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten the cake at a wedding before, but I’d be all over some bundt cake. You could decorate it with flowers in the middle or just a super cute cake stand to dress it up. Delicious over pompous I say!

socalgirl1689 :  Lemon and red velvet are pretty basic flavors too. As long as it’s not something too out there of a flavor (for instance, we didn’t do a banana cake even though I thought it was delicious) I think you’re good!

love the idea, btw! Nothing Bundt Cakes are delicious. I think it sounds perfect for a casual wedding.

socalgirl1689 :  I can tell you my future surprise daughter and I were literally dancing in the kitchen over the chocolate and lemon. ๐Ÿ˜‚ If I had to pick just two I’d choose those since they are generally safe picks for the majority, however, red velvet is one of my personal favorites so it would bum me out a little not having that. Have you tried any of the flavors so far? I suggest doing what we did just get a $20 dozen and have them customize the flavors for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ Might help. The only one that wasn’t a major hit was the pecan praline but I’m not much of a nutty flavor fan so that might just be personal taste.

socalgirl1689 :  Get your favorites!!!  I think a lot of people like lemon and/or red velvet.  I’ve never tried Nothing Bundt Cakes but keep hearing good things.  And I think most fancy “wedding cakes” taste terrible.

socalgirl1689 :  Guess I should clarify…there has been cake at almost every wedding I’ve gone to, I’ve just never eaten it nor has anyone around me. It seems like by the time cake rolls around people are ready to be socializing, dancing, and drinking. I almost always have missed the cake cutting too. Just seems like a waste to me. We did a dessert bar that included make your own sundaes and cotton candy, and NO cake, and it went over well.

socalgirl1689 :  I think it’s a great idea!  I have a shop near my home and it’s very popular.  If I didn’t have a family friend making our cake, I would have totally considered them.
