Default Nothing Bundt Cakes

Has anyone tried the products this chain store "bakery" sells? One of
their stores just opened up nearby and advertises heavily on local
radio. It got me curious so I went to their website.

The product seems limited to fairly ordinary pound cake-based bundts,
inexplicably decorated with heavy icings. I mean, heavy and thick icing
and loads of it.

Evidently the chain is successful, and the cakes are gimmicky. But
before I say anymore to denigrate the product I'll ask if there is
anyone here that has experience with it.

frankly, the website images of these cakes with their nearly
stand-alone icing don't do much for my appetite

No, no, don't be afraid, Shelly! See? Google is good. Google is our friend.

They're a little pricey. I went through their online ordering link
and they want $29.95 for a 8" decorated bundt cake or $39.95 for a 10"
decorated bundt cake. I would not pay that much for a dang bundt cake.

I could just go buy one and see for myself, but it's more entertaining
to read the reviews on the company's own and a few other websites. I
realize that I'm dealing with a population that by and large thinks
Krispy Kreme is at the zenith of doughnuthood and not coincidentally
couldn't recognize a hole in the ground, making it difficult to believe
that these products are truly light and sumptuous and delicious and just
like mother used to make. Especially not with those tarantulas
straddling them. It is a most disquieting effect.

Actually, I like bundt cakes that are heavy and full of "stuff" like
nuts or coconut, or bananas or rum or sherry or lemon and
poppyseeds . . . No frosting/icing except a really nice light glaze.
Nobody around here would pay $29 for an 8" cake!

"Just like mother used to make" is enough to make me worry.
Theoretically it should be difficult to go too far wrong with a simple
box mix, but add in things like large quantities of bacardi rum or hot
liquid lemon gelatin and things can head south pretty quickly.

Does anyone remember that bundt cake commercial from the late
seventies? Sing along -- "Let a bundt cake do the talking..."
