Where To Eat: Delicious Desserts @ Kiss My Bundts

Update 10/2011: The storefront is now officially closed, but you can still order bundts online: 

On Third Street between Robertson Blvd. and Crescent Heights Blvd., there’s a plethora of world-renowned restaurants with stellar dining options. But no matter at which one of these reputable establishments I dine – whether it’s for lunch or dinner, or whether I’m by myself or with a group – I’ll never order dessert. Instead, I’ll politely pay, excuse myself and leisurely stroll down to Kiss My Bundt to savor a real treat: the Bundt cake.

For those who might not be familiar with a Bundt cake, it’s a ring-shaped cake with ridges, often dense in texture and with a thin layer of glazed frosting on top. While I’m somewhat ambivalent towards the traditional Bundt cake, I truly savor Kiss My Bundt owner Chrysta’s southern interpretation of it. Her creamy, velvety frostings replace mundane glazes, and her selection of cake flavors transcends chocolate, yellow and lemon to include Bourbon Pound Cake, Carrot Cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake, amongst many others. It’s as if the boring Bundt cake has been sophisticatedly dressed up and propelled into the modern, urban age, giving us a new twist on an old-time classic.

My personal Kiss My Bundt favorites are the Red Velvet cake and the Cookies and Cream cake. The Red Velvet cake is intensely gratifying, as each bite richly resonates with chocolate flavor. The Cookies and Cream cake is so buttery and moist that it instantaneously melts in your mouth. Literally. I also like how there are several sizes selections, ranging from tiny individual proportions to large “big ole” Bundt cakes, to accommodate the size of my sweet tooth cravings.

Kiss My Bundt busily whips out Bundts by the batches, so the next time you find yourself on Third Street, make sure to stop by and grab a Bundt or two. I know I will!

PICTURED BELOW: Some like itty bitty Bundts, while others like big ole Bundts. But, there’s a Bundt for everyone. The smallest is the Mini Bundt Cake (left), ideal for one person, while the Baby Bundt Cake (right) is perfect for sharing.

PICTURED BELOW: While there are more than 40 Bundt flavors, cake flavors change daily.

PICTURED BELOW: Feel free to savor your Bundt in this modest, one-room storefront. Or, you can always take one for the road.
