Nothing Bundt Cakes Flavors Ranked Worst To Best
Bundt cakes refer to cakes that have been baked in a special donut-shaped pan. The pans often have unique patterns within the round shape and can create everything from simple circles to beautiful terraced creations. This type of cake has its origins in Europe, where it was likely inspired by the Gugelhupf cake of Central Europe .
While the Gugelhupf is a yeast-based cake often cooked with raisins, bundt cakes in the United States are not linked to any particular recipe. They rose to popularity in the U.S. in the 1960s and have remained a popular cake for parties and formal gatherings.
Nothing Bundt Cakes was founded in 1997 by Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz, two women who were known among friends for their delicious bundt cakes. They now have locations all over the country and continue to be a fast-growing franchise. Their cakes are known for being flavorful, moist, and delicious. However, not every flavor can be a winner. Here are all the Nothing Bundt Cakes flavors ranked from worst to best.

When your bundt cake is finished cooking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from cake from the bundt pan and place on a serving plate.
I find the best way to do this is by putting the plate upside down on top of your bundt pan and then flipping the whole thing together.
Let your cake cool.
When your cake has fully cooled, wrap well with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge or freezer to chill for 2-3 hours.

Suggestions For White Chocolate Raspberry Cake
- For this recipe we used a non-stick aluminum Nordic Ware bundt pan. We have had success using this pan every time. If you use a different kind of pan you may need to make time/temp adjustments.
- When making a bundt cake, you want to be sure to generously grease and flour or spray the cake pan with non-stick cooking spray, making sure to get every little nook and cranny.
- Before the cake is completely cool, carefully run a knife between the cake and the pan. Turn the plate or platter you will be serving the cake on upside down and place it on top of the cake . Holding the plate and bundt pan together, flip so the plate is now on the bottom and the bundt pan on top. This will hold the cake in the bundt pan. Once upside down, tap the handle of a butter knife along the bottom of the bundt pan . The cake should come out very easily onto the plate.
- To get the frosting like in the picture, fill a gallon size Ziplock bag or a pastry bag with the frosting and chill for about 30 minutes. Cut off a bottom corner at about a half inch diagonal cut, depending on how big you want the frosting strips. Frost cake by squeezing out the frosting from the outside of the cake toward the middle.
- If you cant find white chocolate pudding mix, vanilla is a good substitute.
- Read through the comments for suggestions from readers. Some had great success just as the recipe was written and other had success adjusting the recipe to their elevation and/or tastes.

When the cake is cooled, beat all the frosting ingredients till smooth and creamy, and spread over the cake.
Heavenly I tell you!
For The Raspberry Filling
The raspberry filling seems to be hit-or-miss with our readers. I have personally tried raspberry jam, raspberry pie filling and also a cup of frozen raspberries dusted with 1 Tbsp flour, all with success. Some readers have found that smashed fresh, drained raspberries work well, too. It seems that the fresh or frozen raspberries dusted with flour is working the best overall, rather than jam or filling.
