New Carytown shop is dedicated to Bundt cakes
I was very surprised to exit Kroger in Carytown the other day and discover a shop had opened across the street dedicated solely to Bundt cakes.
What's happening: It's a chain called "Nothing Bundt Cakes," which — who knew? — has a dozen locations in Virginia, including a spot in Short Pump.
The intrigue: I think of Bundt as an undesirable, dry form of cake served by and to elderly people, which made it seem like a questionable premise for a bakery in the year 2023.
Yes, but: Upon entering the store, I learned I was mistaken and Bundt actually only refers to the ornate pan the cake is baked in. (Turns out my grandma just had a questionable cake recipe.)
- Anyway, I ordered a personal-size strawberry and cream flavored Bundt cake ($6).
🤷 The bottom line: It was definitely Bundt shaped, very moist (sorry, Grandma), and I was delighted to find the inside was filled with icing.
- But otherwise it just reminded me of a standard box cake.
