I Like Big Bundts Logo by JustJenn Designs

Here's some dates you should know:

1. December 7th
That's my birthday and I'm that person who just loves her birthday.

2. September 19th
The day I started my new career as a librarian. And next year, I'll be vested in the retirement plan! Sweet.

3. May 6th
George Clooney's birthday. Enough said.

3. November 15th
National Bundt Day
Seriously, I think I should bump (or Bundt!) this up to the top.

So, to honor the Bundt pan and encourage you all to celebrate...I'm going to post...

30 days of Bundt cakes leading up to National Bundt Day on November 15th!!

Because, as you know from all my past Bundt posts... I LIKE BIG BUNDTS

Huge thanks to my friend JustJenn who came up with this awesome logo featuring Sir Mix-a-Lot (no endorsement implied, although I think he would like a big Bundt).

Come back every day until November 15th and check out a Bundt cake. I'm not crazy enough to bake and post on the same day so I've been working on this for a week and the library is like a Bundt den. I just hope I can'll give me lots of encouragement, right?!

I hope I can inspire you to bake a Bundt for your friends, family and even frienemies. Because the Bundt totally rocks. The Nordic Ware Bundt pan is American made and has limitless possibilities. I like Big Bundts and I cannot tell a lie. I'm going to get myself this or that t-shirt when I'm done!

Please join me for the next 30 days to celebrate the Bundt!

Pin It!

I just made an apple cake in a bundt pan yesterday :) Definitely a big fan of bundts!

It's hilarious you're using Sir Mix-A-Lot's image... my hubs and I were being silly and singing / rapping the first bit tonight. And there might've been a joke or two about juicy doubles lol!

Oh my gosh, I LOVE THIS!!!!!!! Can I even put enough exclamations marks in there? No, I think not. As an aside, I believe Sir Mix-a-Lot would, indeed, like a big bundt. Can I put in a vote for a bundt with cinnamon streusel somewhere in the middle? And maybe Nutella? I mean, if you're gonna go big, might as well go all the way, right? ;)

Wow, this is a big undertaking. I support you and will commit to be a 30 day cheerleader. Let's do this!

Oh man, Bundts galore! I'm really looking forward to this month, both because I love bundts too, and also love to read your posts. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Love the "logo" - too funny. 30 days, eh? Go for it!!
(If you run low on ideas, the apple bread I make for my dad is a-ma-zing and I always make it in a bundt pan and call it cake. It's very much cake and not bread, really.)

Audrey said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, cool. I can't wait. I hope you're planning to use a different pan each time...:)

I was just looking through Rose Levy Beranbaum's new book, and she has lots of recipes for those annoyingly-sized but oh-so-pretty 10-cup pans (just passing along this bit of bundt knowledge)...

Rachel said... [Reply to comment]

Waiting to see all 30.

ooooh, i do love starting my day off with a laugh, and that's exactly what's happened. that's the most clever name for an event that i believe i've ever heard and i shall chuckle at it with every awesome cake you post. :)

Mary Ann said... [Reply to comment]

I can't tell you how much I love this idea. I can't wait to see all your BIG BUNDTs!

Megan said... [Reply to comment]

Bring on the buns - I mean, bundts! Good luck! That's a LOT of cake - I'm looking forward to stealing lots of ideas from you.

Sir Mix-a-lot is part of my workout playlist, so I'll be thinking of you and your big bundts while I'm at the gym this morning! :p

Dorothy said... [Reply to comment]

Wow, the next 30 days are going to be AWESOME! Great logo, great idea :) And you should definitely get one of the t-shirts, but not when you're done...get one NOW to wear while you bake them big bundts!

This is hilarious! Although I completely disagree with your frosting to cake preference, I am so into your 30 days of Bundt! I can't wait to see them all.

(This song reference is funny. I remember when it came out how much I wished I had big, um, bundts!)

Pamela said... [Reply to comment]

I love it! Can't wait to see what you bake up!!

The Scootabaker said... [Reply to comment]

...some other bakers can't deny, that when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and holding a big round bundt in your face you get sprung!

Well done on your choice of lyrics!

...From our home office in Minneapolis, Minnesota...

I love Nordic ware already!

My mom used to make Monkey bread in a bundt pan. Maybe I should pick one up so I can do some more bundting.

You are hilarious!! I really need to try out some of your favorites - everything you make looks so delicious.

Mel said... [Reply to comment]

Oh my God, Becky, look at her.
Her bundt is SO BIG.

I'm that person when it comes to my birthday too. (and christmas, and since they're less than 2 weeks apart, I annoy all with my gleeful holiday spirit)

Amy I. said... [Reply to comment]

This is freakin' hilarious! What a great concept! I have a root beer bundt cake in the oven right now. Looking forward to seeing all of your bundts!

Mary said... [Reply to comment]

Hooray....I cannot wait for the fun to begin. You need to get not one but both of the t-shirts....I can't wait to read along!

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]

I'm moving backwards here from Bundt #4, but just to remind you that Nov. 15 is also my birthday! What a fun coincidence that I wish I'd known before!
