Aren’t bundt cakes just the cutest? I’m not exactly sure when I became obsessed with pretty ring cakes, but I’ve been bundting my way through this blog for many years now.
I think one of the things I love about bundt cakes besides all of the insanely gorgeous options for bundt pans (I want them all!!) is that it’s totally appropriate to enjoy bundt cakes for both dessert and breakfast. As a brunch aficionado, breakfast cake is right up my alley.
This year has been totally insane in all the best ways. Between work and travel, I haven’t been able to sit still for even one second. Opportunities have been flying at me from all angles, and I’m doing my very best trying to keep up. I can’t believe it’s already Fun Month. Where did the time go?
Generally this time of the year I take a break and enjoy my birthday month. Travel and awesome work projects aren’t going to allow me to fully do that this year, but I figured I could at least make some time for cake right?
Another new development this year is that I’m learning to love fall again, so for my latest foray into bundt land, I’ve incorporated some seasonal fall flavors.
Recently I’ve been really into what I consider “pumpkin substitutes” like sweet potato and butternut squash. Everyone usually thinks pumpkin flavor for October, which I why I chose to go with a sweet potato cake instead. Adding some bourbon gives it that cozy fall kick, and obviously makes it more Fun Month appropriate.
While I’ve been a bit absent around these parts on and off this year, I want to let you all know how grateful I am for your continued support. Betsylife is 7 years old! I can’t even believe how much my life has changed in the past 7 years. As I personally ring in #37 soon, I just feel very lucky and happy to be able to live such a creative life, and interact with all you lovely folks, so thank you. From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate all of you.
Now let’s eat some cake!
