If we’ve met before you most likely know of my undying affection for the humble cupcake. I’ve had a roaming eye of late. I found a pair of minibundt cake pans last weekend at a secondhand shop and was smitten. I am fond of their lovely shape, the efficient little pans, and the whole bundt cake community lurking out there on the interwebs! I haven’t ever made a bundt cake even though they’ve had a surge in popularity in recent years. Their first American claim to fame was in the 50’s, but were based on a much older cake pan design from Germany. I remember seeing antique bundt cake pans at flea markets when I was little and I never regarded the finished product as special, but after my first experience baking with these I am in love. There are so many bundt cake lovers to hang with on pinterest I may be in a whole bundt of trouble. Have you made a bundt cake? And was it in the last 30 years?
I added a can of pumpkin to a standard box mix with a dash of vanilla extract. Fabulous!
For the glaze I mixed cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, and a dash of milk. A few of the minicakes received a sprinkling of cinnamon!
