Last night, Chris and I had friends over for dinner…
Rachel (holding a not-asleep Katie), Hoyt, CD, Travis, and Jessica.
We dined on Mexican. I made enchiladas, both beef and black bean, along with Mama Pea’s refried beans and rice. Jessica brought this amazing guacamole. Seriously, some of the best guac I’ve ever eaten. LOVED the big chunks of avocado.
Dinner was good, but the star of the show was dessert…
Summer let me borrow her chalkboard for the dessert display. Thanks Sum!
Nothing Bundt Cakes-Nashville is celebrating their first anniversary by announcing plans to open a second location in Middle Tennessee later this fall, and they contacted local bloggers to help spread the word. In doing so, I received free cake for a review on my blog.
We told our guests that we had cake for them to sample, and that I needed honest feedback for a blog post. They happily obliged and sampled all the various flavors. We served Bundtinis (bite-sized cakes) in the store’s most popular flavors: red velvet, chocolate chocolate chip, lemon, and white chocolate raspberry as well as a 10-inch Pumpkin Spice cake, the current seasonal flavor.
I immediately dove into a chocolate chocolate chip Bundtini, because well, it was chocolate.
When given the choice, I will always choose chocolate over fruit, but not in this situation because next up was the white chocolate raspberry Bundtini…
Amazing – light and moist with the perfect amount of raspberry flavor. Delicious! I also really liked the pumpkin spice flavor as did all of our guests. The spice combo jumped right out at you and paired well with the cream cheese frosting, and don’t even get me started on the frosting…could not stop picking at it after our guests left. It wasn’t overly sweet like most frostings tend to be in my opinion. So much cream cheese flavor, so good. The red velvet flavor was also a big hit, especially with the guys.
Each of our guests received a Bundtlet (single serving cake) to take home.
Many thanks to Nothing Bundt Cakes for the free samples and Happy Anniversary! I’m already planning on picking up some bite-sized Bundtinis for our next party…perhaps with extra frosting?
