Bakery celebrates 25th with free cakes
Nothing Bundt Cakes is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a cake giveaway. On Sept. 1, the first 250 guests at the bakery, 421 N. Santa Cruz Ave. in Los Gatos, will receive a free Confetti Bundtlet, the brand’s individually packaged miniature Bundt Cakes.
Nothing Bundt Cakes is also holding an online contest where one fan will win a $25,000 birthday party planned by a celebrity party planning company. Additionally, 25 runners-up will each receive a $100 Nothing Bundt Cakes gift card.
Fans can enter the contest by submitting a photo from their favorite birthday memory, describing what they enjoyed about it and sharing what winning the party would mean to them. To enter, and for complete contest rules, visit nothingbundtcakes.com/25.
Entries will be accepted Sept. 1-25, and winners will be announced on the contest website in October.
“At Nothing Bundt Cakes, bringing joy is at the heart of everything we do,” said Nothing Bundt Cakes Chief Marketing Officer Angie Eckelkamp. “Our bakery-wide 25th birthday Confetti Bundtlet giveaway and $25,000 party contest is our way of thanking our guests for letting us be a part of their joyous moments over the years.”
Founded in Las Vegas in 1997, Nothing Bundt Cakes started as a small baking business out of the home kitchens of co-founders Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz. Demand for their Bundt Cakes, crowned with cream cheese frosting, soon grew to the point where they opened a bakery, and then another, and eventually began franchising their concept.
Now, with nearly 450 locations in the U.S. and Canada, Nothing Bundt Cakes offers four cake sizes in nine flavors.
