BUNDT LOVERS! Wait, come back!!

Ahaha, guys, I love big bundts and I cannot lie. YEAH. I'M OFFICIALLY REVERTING TO DAD HUMOR. But it's important! Williams-Sonoma has a Star of David bundt pan! THIS IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS. Because I'm interested in making delicious cake for my Jewish friends, you see.

In other news, I have made 2 pounds (literally) of hummus today because apparently that is my favorite snack? Toasted bread with a thick schmear of hummus? NOM NOM.

I can't get anything done and so I online window shop. /pathetic

This post brought to you by a person hiding from Duck Dynasty playing in the other room. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

THERE IS STILL TIME TO GET THIS. IT IS REASONABLY PRICED. I HAVE OTHER BUNDT PANS BY THIS COMPANY AND THEY ARE EXCELLENT.

And you can tweak a recipe for Jello with shit floating in it for your Gentile friends! (Hahahaha)

Speaking of bundts - I can't find the recipe online, but Martha Stewart had this INCREDIBLE Thanksgiving pumpkin bundt cake. It was actually two cakes, and you put them on top of one another to form a pumpkin shape, and glazed it with . . . glaze, and you topped it with chocolate leaves made from painting lemon leaves with chocolate the day before.

Clearly this was a throw-it-together sort of affair.

I AM DEAD FROM WANT. OMG, that sounds amazing. And like a lot of work. I have a spice cake that I make in my bundt pan and layer in a cinnamon/pecan streusel in the middle of it and it is SO GOOD. But I loooove the idea of making the pumpkin shape!!

CAKE. It just doesn't get much better than flippin' cake. (Unless it's homemade blueberry pie)

CAKE.

My friend and I made it once. It fed five thousand.

I love me some pie. I have a frontier woman's pastry recipe that is flawless and omg, now I want to make pie in the worst way.

I made an apple pie this weekend. By the time it was cooled enough to slice, I came back to see that the plate was empty, save a few crumbs, and was slowly spinning to a stop. This is what it means to have children and their friends at your house when you bake from scratch.

I THINK I NEED A CAKE TODAY, THOUGH. Mmmmmmmm, so good.

I wanted to hate Duck Dynasty so much, but it's actually...really kind of amusing.

Love me some Bundt cake, too.

Oh, I'm just not watching it now out of spite. :D My husband is a hunter, making me a hunter's widow, and now it's always on at home, too. ;)

BUNDTS!! Mmm, they're like donuts but a giant cake!

Oh I get it, believe me. Try a husband and three teen and twenty-something sons who hunt. Also my dad was a gunsmith and an avid hunter before he passed. I'm familiar. :)

A store selling bundt cakes recently opened in my neighborhood (yes, really) and thus far we've purchased a concoction of lemony goodness that had my family practically licking the box. We're pacing ourselves from buying all the cakes RIGHT NOW by avoiding that side of town for awhile.

Here's my take on Duck Dynasty after having watched 15 seconds of it one day: a bunch of dudes who have taken an oath to repel as many women as possible via their facial hair and wardrobes sit around and talk $hit to one another. I figured I had seen enough of that from the men in my life already (sans the revolting beards), so was safe skipping on by to something more erudite, like the Fashion Police.

(And I swear on a stack of bundt cakes, the first time I heard the term "Duck Dynasty" I thought it must be a soap opera-type show starring Daffy Duck plus two lady ducks tussling while wearing outfits with large shoulder pads. I was kind of disappointed to learn it wasn't that at all.)

Ha, is it "All About Bundts?" We had one open here, and I didn't realize it was a chain!

OMG, you have summed up Duck Dynasty PERFECTLY. Perfectly.

Hmmm...it's called Nothing Bundt Cakes, which apparently is a chain. Whoda' thunk the US could support two chains selling bundt cakes?

Here's an excerpt from one Yelp review: "Since my last review I have been back a twice and someone else in my office brought some in to work. These things are like crack. I have to drive by on my way home and it is all I can do to not stop and buy more".

Yep, that about covers how it went with that cake sitting in my house: one would be innocently entering the kitchen for a glass of water and the next thing you knew you were hunched protectively over the cake while glancing over your shoulder, then cutting off little nibbles and surreptiously shoving them in your mouth before other family members could get suspicious about the lack of liquid-ish sounds, then adopting an air of innocence when exiting the kitchen. Ten minutes later you remember that you "forgot" the glass of water and repeat the procedure all over again. Later comes the sad moment when your entire family stands over the empty box and wavers between accusatory glares at one another and sad, longing looks at the leftover crumbs and little smears of frosting. Finally comes the moment when you decide to exhibit at least a little bit of dignity and throw the box away instead of tearing it apart and licking it like the dog loves to do.

OK, my husband and I put a moratorium on new kitchen gadgets a few years ago, but THIS might have to be the exception...

He's the one who wanted to raise our kids Jewish, man. :-)

His response when I showed him the link: "Oh, FUCK YEAH, I'm gettin' my Jew cake on!"

I knew there was a reason I married him.

And it's times like these that I'm sad Livejournal doesn't have 'like' buttons, because that was hilarious! :D

I went vegan a few months ago, and I've managed to master a delicious vegan cupcake, but it sounds like a vegan version of a bundt cake is going to have to be my next mission. Man, I miss those coffee cake ones with the streusel on top from way back when! And I have a coworker who brings them in with icing every once in a while (she's evil. :P), so clearly I *NEED* a bundt mold, because I have to keep up with her, right?? *twirls until dizzy* *falls*

OMG!!! I'm so torn by my need to get that glorious bundt pan and immigrant thriftiness!! It's a one-trick pony and I promissed myself no more of those in the kitchen. WWED??? (What Would Esther Do??!)

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
