Then Finish Your Nothing Bundt Cakes Copycat Recipe By Frosting The Cake
Now comes the fun part: frosting the cake. One of the things that makes Nothing Bundt Cakes so fancy is their piped frosting design. It’s much easier than you think, so we suggest giving it a try. If you’re not into it, feel free to spread the frosting out over the entire cake using a knife. You may have to double the cream cheese frosting recipe if you’re going this route to make sure you have enough.
To pipe on the frosting, use a pastry bag with a large, round tip. Or, place the frosting in a plastic bag and cut a hole in one corner. Start at the bottom edge of the cake and squeeze the frosting from the top of the bag, pulling a line of frosting over top of the cake and into the large hole in the center. When you reach the center, pinch off the frosting and repeat the process. You should have about an inch of unfrosted cake in between each frosting line.
When you’re finished, slice the cake into 16 portions and eat it right away. Or, you can loosely cover it with plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for up to five days.

How To Make Sure Your Nothing Bundt Cakes Copycat Recipe Doesn’t Stick
The most frustrating part of making a bundt cake is removing it from the pan. If you haven’t properly prepared the pan, it will stick and destroy the cake’s beautiful look. This can even happen with nonstick bundt pans. Luckily, we have a method that ensures that the cake won’t stick to the pan.
Start by spreading a thin layer of butter over the entire pan. You can also use shortening, if you prefer, but don’t use oil or nonstick spray you want to use something that’s solid at room temperature.
Use your fingers to smooth the butter over every crevice in the pan. Then, grab a pinch of flour and dust it over the pan, making sure it hits all the buttered surfaces. When the entire pan has a thin layer of flour, turn it upside down over the trash can to shake out the excess. Now, when you add the cake batter, it won’t stick to the sides.
Pop The Copycat Nothing Bundt Cake Into The Oven
Now that your bundt pan is prepared to prevent sticking, it’s time to get baking. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the batter into the cake pan and tap it lightly on the counter to level it out. You can also use a rubber spatula to smooth out the bundt cake’s surface so it lays in an even layer. Bake the cake for 45 minutes to an hour.
It’s important to note that everyone’s oven is different, and factors like humidity and outside temperature can affect cake baking times. The cake may need more time than we suggest, and it can take as long as 90 minutes to cook. At the 45 minute mark, remove the cake from the oven and insert a toothpick into the center of the batter. If it comes out clean, the cake is finished. If any moist bits cling to the toothpick, bake the cake for an additional 15 minutes and test it again.
Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if the moist bits are melted chocolate or raw cake batter. In that case, you can also use an instant-read thermometer to check if the cake is done. When it reads 210 degrees, the cake is finished.

Bundt Release Method: Shortening And Almond Flour
- Timing: 30 to 60 seconds
- Rating: 7/10
About this method:King Arthur Baking Company suggests greasing your Bundt pan with nonstick vegetable oil spray or softened shortening and spreading it with a pastry brush to get the fat into every nook and cranny. For an extra barrier between cake and pan, King Arthur also suggests coating your pan with nut flour, taking extra care to coat the center tube. For this test, I chose softened shortening and almond flour.
Results: The cake released immediately from the pan with ease. The biggest issue with this method is the appearance and texture of the cake. Instead of an even, golden-brown exterior, the cake is splotchy from where the almond flour either baked or didnt bake at all. The cake had an almost ombré look, similar to what happens when you coat the pan with all-purpose flour. The parts of the cake where the almond flour baked developed a crunchy exterior, which competed with the fluffy cake. The cake also had a lot of crater-like specks throughout, where the heavy almond flour sunk into the cake, leaving holes instead of a smooth surface.

Can You Freeze Nothing Bundt Cakes
- You betcha! Even frosted you can freeze these cakes or bundtlets. If freezing before frosting, simple cool completely (very important so you dont form ice crystals, then wrap well in plastic wrap and then in foil.
- Much like this Banana Bread, I think its better then second day, allowing the flavors to mingle and meld.
- If freezing after icing, simply place in the freezer for 30-50 minutes to harden the icing, then cover with plastic wrap well then again in foil. Keeps frozen for up to 3 months, if you can keep yourself from digging in.

We are still in the middle of lock down for Corona Virus here in Texas. However, as I type this, we are getting to open up S-L-O-W-L-Y. But back in April my neighbor across the street was talking with my husband. She was sharing her woes over trying to make this recipe and having a colossal fail each time. He told her she needed to talk with me and perhaps we could put our heads together and diagnose what went wrong.
She said it turned out so oily that they had to throw the whole cake out . So I asked her to send me the recipe and see what I could do. Apparently she was trying to work with two different recipes and thats where her problem started. One of them called for 1 1/2 cups oil. Yikes. It also called for the bundt pan to be greased with lard. LARD? Who uses lard anymore. Most of us dont. While I would use it in cooking, I would NEVER use it in baking.
She sent me this particular recipe and as I looked at the ingredients, I couldnt see anything that would cause such a fail. I told her I would make it as many times as necessary tweaking here and there until it came out the way they liked it. My first try was a success.
My husband took the cake over to them and they loved it. Apparently my neighbors mother loves Nothing Bundt Cakes. But they are really expensive to ship. So she was trying to come up with a recipe her mother could make at home. My neighbor never told me what other recipe she was using in combo with this one, but I felt this recipe was excellent.

Pour the rest of your cake batter into the bundt pan.

Meanwhile Make The Cream Cheese Frosting For This Nothing Bundt Cakes Copycat Recipe
While the cake is baking, you can prepare your cream cheese frosting. If you like, you can make the frosting a day in advance and store it in the refrigerator.
Place the room temperature cream cheese and butter in a bowl. Using a whisk attachment of your stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat the mixture until it’s light and fluffy, about three minutes. Add the vanilla and 1/2 cup of the powdered sugar. Beat the sugar until it’s smooth and creamy before adding another 1/2 cup. Continue until all the sugar is added and everything is well mixed. Taste the frosting and add more sugar if you prefer a sweeter frosting.
From there, you can store the frosting in the refrigerator in the bowl, but we think it’s easier to store it in a piping bag, as the frosting stiffens as it cools. Use a rubber spatula to remove the frosting from the bowl and scoop it into a piping bag with a large, round piping tip. If you don’t have a piping bag, you can use a plastic bag instead.
