What is a Bundt Cake?

A bundt cake is a cake that has been baked in a bundt pan.

There are all sorts of decorative bundt cake pans, which are usually fluted or scalloped. These pans are ring-shaped- the hole in the center promotes even baking.

One of my favorite things about baking cakes in bundt pans is that little to no decoration is needed because a freshly baked bundt cake looks elegant just as it is.

How to Decorate a Bundt Cake

As you see in our collection of favorites, we often add just a bit of decoration- maybe a simple glaze, or a dusting a powdered sugar- to our bundt cakes and pound cakes.

We most often use our simple vanilla glaze, caramel glaze, or ganache glaze depending on the recipe. These can be spooned over the cake or piped through a disposable piping bag with the tip snipped away.

Of course you can spread on a little frosting too as we did in our Italian Cream Bundt Cake, or some simple piping as we did in our Carrot Bundt Cake.

Finally, you can never go wrong with a dollop of whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Can Bundt Cakes be Frozen?

Yes they can! Whether you would like to bake in advance, or save leftover cake for another time, bundt cakes freeze beautifully.

Wrapping and Freezing

To freeze a bundt cake, wrap the cake tightly with plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil.

When baking in advance, we place the freshly baked cake (still in the pan) on a wire rack to cool for ten minutes before turning it out onto a foil-wrapped cake cardboard.

We allow it to cool a bit more and then wrap while it is still slightly warm. We wrap the cake tightly in plastic wrap followed by aluminum foil, and into the freezer it goes!

The cake will stay as fresh as the day that it was frozen for up to three months.

(You can do this also with individual slices of cake- simply wrap each cake slice in plastic wrap followed by foil.)

How to Thaw a Bundt Cake

It's best to move your wrapped bundt cake from the freezer to the refrigerator the day before you plan to serve it.

Then, move the bundt cake to the kitchen counter, unwrap, and allow to continue to thaw for a couple more hours before adding any final details like a glaze, etc.

  2. I love Bunt Cakes I use to make one a week at a small country store I owned with my husband we had a small kitchen counter and I served local loggers and hunters and drop ins traveling through. I ran across your website and it brought back so many memories. I recently baked four bunt cakes and took them to a cake walk at my Church. they were a big hit.
