Hey there! Sorry I haven't been very active in blogland lately. On March 20th a wildfire broke out in our canyon. We were on evacuation standby for six days. It was a really scary experience, but I'm happy to report that thanks to the bravery and hard work of five dozen fire crews (some 400 fire fighters), the fire didn't destroy any homes and nobody was injured. If you know a fire fighter please give him/her a HUGE hug from us!!!
So, that was last week. Shweew! THIS week I've been super busy getting ready for visitors. My sister-in-law, her husband, and our three nephews will be arriving on Saturday and spending a week with us. It's going to be LOTS of FUN hanging out with them!
Now that we're all somewhat caught up on the crazy life of Lisa, let's get into our next installment of Shop 52 Denver and our March GIVEAWAY!!! YAY!
This week I'd like to introduce you to a YUMMY little shop, Nothing Bundt Cakes! (Isn't that a fun play on words?!?! Love it!)
I was introduced to Nothing Bundt Cakes a few weeks ago when my fabulous inky friends, Michele and Laura, gave me a couple of these delicious mini bundt cakes for my birthday!! Just look at this adorable package!
That's a carrot cake on top and chocolate turtle on the bottom---both were so incredibly moist and delicious----and the icing is to die for!! I just KNEW I had to go to this place and check it out in person!
The shop is GORGEOUS and smells so good! It's decorated in pastels and chocolate browns---very girly and whimsical! Colorful aprons, cake platters, and seasonal decor items (all of which are for sale) add warmth to the environment. And the staff are incredibly friendly! I wasn't permitted to take any photographs inside of the shop (thus the limited number of photos in this post). Unfortunately, they've had some trouble with people copying their concept. However, their website is full of beautiful photographs, so be sure to check it out. Click HERE! Nothing Bundt Cakes has franchises in other parts of the country, too, so you can check the website to see if there's one near your town. And if not...no worries...they ship nationwide!!
And of course, I couldn't leave the shop without a bundt! I decided to take the Red Velvet Bundt home for dessert that night! Dea packaged it up for me (LOVE their attention to detail):
After dinner my husband kept saying, "C'mon...Take your photos of that bundt cake, so I can taste it already!!!" HA! Here it is...my current favorite flavor!!!
Did I mention the icing?!?! That entire center is FILLED with it! Oh my goodness!
I hope you enjoyed this mini tour of Nothing Bundt Cakes, and I hope you'll check them out!
And since this is my last Shop 52 Denver post for the month of March, I have a GIVEAWAY!!! To enter, just leave me a comment telling me your favorite kind of cake! Easy peasy!
