Free cakes for a year!

Sorry, all. This is for local peeps only. If you live in Albuquerque, N.M., (or surrounding areas) read on!

Nothing Bundt Cakes is opening a branch here. Forget the cupcakes craze. I don't even like cupcakes, do you? No, bundt cakes are better. Perhaps it's the hole in the middle or the little ridges that make for perfect portioning. Maybe it's the fact that bundt cakes are usually drizzled in icing instead of drowning in frosting.

Nothing Bundt Cakes takes an old favorite and updates it with contemporary decorations. They are great for parties or surprising someone with a special treat. Selections range from single-serving Bundtlets to bundts that serve 18 to tiered cakes. There are cakes for all occasions.

I don't get anything for writing about this. I'm doing it for YOU! (But if I pick up a few followers who like to read about big-eyed babies named Brock, sewing and other various crafts, well, that would be awesome!) You, dear readers, can win a year's supply of cakes from Nothing Bundt Cakes! That is one Bundtlet cake a month for one year. It's the perfect way to indulge without giving an entire cake the smackdown and having to pull out the fat jeans.

The new shop is opening in the shopping center at Wyoming and Academy, where Whole Foods is.

Grand opening celebrations include:

Wednesday, Aug. 17
  • 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – Ribbon-cutting with the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce
Friday, Aug. 19
  • 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. – Animal Humane of Albuquerque Day, with 20 percent of all proceeds benefit the organization
Saturday, Aug. 20
  • 10 a.m. – First 50 customers to make a purchase receive free cake for a year (one free Bundtlet per month for 12 months)
  • Noon to 3 p.m. – Family Fun event featuring balloon art and face painting for the kids and benefiting Animal Humane of Albuquerque

On to the giveaway, then! In order to win free cakes for a year, all you have to do is leave a comment below on this post. Make sure you leave an email address or that your comment is linked to a blogger account with an email address available. Otherwise, I can't reach you! If you're someone I know through Facebook, that's good enough. Just make clear who you are and I'll contact you that way.

I'm sorry to say that this is only open to people in the Albuquerque area, because that's the only place this prize is redeemable. I will draw a winner on Friday, Aug. 19. I will post the winner on my blog, but if for some reason I can't reach you by email or get no response, I will draw a new winner 48 hours later. If the winner is for some reason out of state, I will draw someone new.

What a lovely place. They bake goodness, share it with others, and donate to help our homeless animals. What a gift to our community. Thank you for making a difference. I can't wait to pick up a chocolate one for my neighbor who mows my grass every week. Perfect way to share the love!
