Few things can make me feel better than a funfetti cake. A funfetti Bundt is one of them.This cake was made to celebrate the birthday of our budtamonth group. As you may or may not know about me, I always celebrate special occasions with funfetti. I find it feeds my inner child who is always looking to satisfy her sweet tooth with fun colorful rainbow colored cake.
There are many reasons why Bundts are perfect cakes. Firstly, it’s just one cake, no layers that requires frosting. Its also baked in one pan without the need for any water bath, baking strips, or any fancy special aid tools. Furthermore, they look very sophisticated, though they require minimal decorating skills. There are all sorts of Bundt shapes, the Original Platinum Bundt Pan, Fleur De Lis Pan, Elegant Heart Bundt Pan, and my favorite, Heritage Bundt Pan… Up until last week, I really thought that they were the cutest thing ever. But then discovered something new. Its called mini Bundts. When I saw the 6 cavity Platinum Bundtlette Pan, it was love at first sight. I knew that this pan belongs in my kitchen. Storage is a major issue in my very tiny kitchen, but what the heck, YOLO, which means in my world, eat all the cake I want and buy all the baking pans I like. I mean, come on who doesn’t have a place for one extra pan? My dear husband rolled his eyes on me when I got it, claiming that I don’t need more pans, but as you can see, in the end I won (as I always do :)) and this little baby came home with me.
This was probably the best money I spent in September. I love, love love, that its a perfectly proportioned mini Bundt, meaning that no slicing is required and everyone gets their own little cake to enjoy. I’m OCD with that I do not like to slice a Bundt cake. I can never seem to be able to slice equal portions that look perfect no mater which route I take to slice it, it’s just not perfect enough. These bundlette solve this problem. They look perfect, all you need to do is invert the pan, drizzle something (optional), serve and enjoy.
Its even cutter than a cupcake.
Compared to cupcakes, these are easier to make because they require no after work (aka frosting). Honestly, am just not a huge cupcake fan. Am probably the only person in the world who is not crazy about cupcakes. It’s OK if you like them, cool, I understand. Let’s just pretend that you never read this. Am just not on the same boat. I especially hate decorating cupcakes with overly sweet frosting, and worst, I hate peeling that useless paper liner off.
Allow me to tell about these delightful funfetti lemon Bundt cakes.This cake will make anyone’s day. If you want to spoil someone into an unforgettable treat, make these. Say you woke up on Monday morning and saw the alarm on your smart phone reminding you that today is your father / husband / bff birthday! There is no need to panic or rush to the supermarket to buy a cheap store bought cake. These mini funfetti Bundt cake will come to the rescue. I know what you’re think, these things take time to bake? Well no. they don’t. Thanks to the fact that these are mini Bundts, they only take 20 minutes to bakes. Some large Bundt pan can take up to 90 minutes to bake. Since there’s no frosting required, so its just baking time, cooling time, drizzling time and eating time. Don’t forget to sprinkle some extra sprinkles. Congratulations you’ve just made a fun funfetti confetti lemon cake.
P.S. I suggest using Pam Baking Spray. I never trust non stick pans and always prefer to be on the safe side.
These little mini cakes you see above are:
- Totally worth the calories
- A work of art
- A perfect finish to any meal
- A true baking masterpiece
This recipe makes exactly 6 Bundlettes. Or one small regular Bundt cake. If you have a lot of guests coming over, or you’re just feeling extra greedy (totally normal), the recipe can be easily double to make a dozen, you can even bake them into cupcakes (good luck with the frosting). Whatever you do, please make these.
