Nothing Bundt Cakes on one what is becoming a weekly visit to the Petco across from Old Orchard Mall at Skokie Blvd. and Golf. We always seem to be needing a little something for our new pup and we've started taking advantage of the free weekly puppy playdate there. I was thrilled when I received a press release for the shop and was invited to sample a few of their wares. Yum!
Just a few days later I became a paying customer.
As the name implies, Nothing Bundt Cakes Skokie offers bundt cakes* that come in several sizes from teeny bundtinis, sold by the dozen, to the bundtlets which, like large cupcakes provide a generous single serving or can be shared, and their full-on bundt cakes. They typically have ten flavors on hand-standards like chocolate chocolate chip (yum!), lemon, white chocolate raspberry, and carrot to name a few. They also offer a monthly seasonal favorite.
Their bundt cakes are moist without being too dense and their signature cream cheese frosting is heavenly. You should know there's always a bundtini available for sampling in their bright, airy store.
They've got a few things planned in honor of their grand opening:
Saturday, Sept. 7 at 10 AM
The first 50 paying customers will receive a card for a free monthly bundtlet for the next 12 months.
From 10-11 there will also be "abundant cake sampling," a balloon artist and a raffle.
Thursday, September 12 from 5-8 PM
Ribbon cutting with the Skokie and Evanston Chambers of Commerce
Friday, September 13
Benefit Day for Les Turner ALS Foundation. 20% of proceeds will go to this great organization. We have a friend with ALS, "the Stephen Hawking of Hollywood," and I'm sure if you know anyone with ALS, you know how much needs to be done to support those affected by it.
*They also sell candles, a few party accessories and hostess gifts.
