I Like Big Bundts 3 Logo by JustJennDesigns
National Bundt Day 2011 Round-Up

November 15, 2011 was International/National Bundt Day! After making 30 Bundts in 30 Days (see them here), I invited you to make a bundt to celebrate! And, boy, did you!

In 2009, there were 41 Bundts in the Round up. Last year it was close to 90! And this year?! OMG. 145 Bundts!

I loved reading each entry! Some of you made your very first bundt or used this holiday as an excuse to get another Bundt pan. Many of you brought them into work or shared with friends and family. Love it! You all said the nicest things and I'm touched that this crazy project inspired you to bake a bundt!

My twitter buddy, Nikki of Nikkilooch said: (this totally cracked me up...many used the word "crazy" to describe my commitment to the Bundt)
There’s a woman out in California named Mary. She’s a librarian who loves to bake. She started baking 30 bundts in 30 days. She’s a little bit crazy. That makes me like her a little bit more than I did before the bundts happened.

I Like Big Bundts 2011 Baker ButtonI listed the states and countries of the entries...Bundt love is all over the map! I've linked to the blog, so please click through to find some yummy recipes and new blogs. If the baker doesn't have a blog, you'll see an asterisk by their name. I ended up placing order after order for buttons! (Those who sent me a photo of their recently made Bundt by 11/24/2011 will receive a JustJenn Designs "I Like Big Bundts 2011 Baker" button.) You can't get these buttons in stores, but you can get fantastic "I Like Big Bundts" buttons and cards on the JustJenn Designs online store.

I think putting this round-up together and getting the buttons out is taking me longer than baking 30 different bundt cakes! Although I used the Wufoo form for submission and hella concatenation on Excel (my favorite formula ever! Yes, that is a total nerd comment, I'm aware of that), I'm sure I erred someplace... please email me if you have any questions: thefoodlibrarian [at] gmail [ dot] com

I also randomly picked a baker to win a copy of Cake Simple - a lovely book full of bundt cakes! The winner is #41: Di of Di's Kitchen Notebook!

Thank you soooo much for your enthusiasm for the Bundt. You make rockin' bundts!

With much Bundt love and appreciation, 
   - mary the food librarian

Disclosure: The author of Cake Simple gave me a copy of the book (because the I Like Big Bundts project is on page 82!!). However, I'm paying for the buttons and their domestic and international postage, and postage for the book (yes, I might just put the postal service back in the black! ;)

G those pictures are divine - I want to make every bundt that's photographed, lol (and in fact, I opened 7 pages in other tabs to check out recipes noted above)! Is it a coincidence that I baked a lemon bundt last night? I think NOT! ;)

Thank you once again for all your hard work at pulling off this bundt extravaganza - you positively ROCK!!!! Maple syrup hugs sent your way for being such a hoot!

Hello from England! Thank you for such a beautiful blog. I've recently fallen in love with bundt pans/cakes and your site is such a pleasure to read. I do have a question for you: if you had to pick your favourite bundt cake recipe, which one would it be and why?

Many thanks,
