Nothing bundt icing on the cake October 21, 2010 — by Vivien Lu Mouth-watering sweets at Icing on the Cake Permalink The scent of frosting and cakes flow permeate the bakeries and the heat from the freshly made desserts warm the surroundings. Both in Los Gatos downtown, Nothing Bundt Cakes and Icing On the Cake are widely known for their edible delicacies. However, each bakery has its own idiosyncrasies that draw customers back again. Nothing Bundt Cakes on North Santa Cruz Avenue across from Safeway sells solely bundt cakes. The must-have flavors are red velvet and chocolate chocolate chip, and the flavor or the month is pumpkin. The store sells smaller, sample sizes for giving out at parties and miniature cakes, which are about $4 each. The cakes are thick, making each bite more filling, and there is more content for the same price as a cupcake from Icing On the Cake. The store also has a large menu filled with a variety of choices for decorated bundt cakes that are perfect for any occasion, such as birthday parties or holiday celebrations. On the other hand, Icing On the Cake on West Main Street near Highway 17 is more for simple everyday pleasures. They are known for their banana products, as banana seems to be the most popular flavor, ranging from banana bread to banana cupcakes. The store will certainly satisfy a sweet tooth; one of their creamier desserts, the Swirly, is a chocolate cupcake filled with white butter cream, outlined in chocolate icing, and dipped in chocolate pudding. The lightly whipped frosting on the cupcakes from Icing On the Cake is incredibly sweet, but the fluffy cupcake itself is so moist and creamy, that the two coincide to a well-balanced creation. The bakery has an endless supply of sweets—cookies, pies, and bread, mint chip and cookie dough cupcakes fill the shop. In addition, Icing On the Cake is able to create the warm, freshly made atmosphere that Nothing Bundt Cakes lacks. The goal of both bakeries is to create a traditional setting by displaying artistic cupcake stands and shelves full of delicious and appetizing treats. Icing on the Cake, especially, boasts a particularly friendly and knowledgeable staff, who know their desserts and assist people with a smile. So to summarize, Icing On the Cake satisfies all standards of good bakery experience, but Nothing Bundt Cakes gives a better deal on their desserts that are often broader and more suitable arrangements for special occasions.
