Since it moved to Pasadena and opened at 548 S. Lake Avenue two years ago, Nothing Bundt Cakes has been whipping-up an assortment of bundt cakes in a wide variety of flavors and sizes.
According to Ingrid Kuo, franchise owner of the Pasadena location, schools and school-related organizations can partner with Nothing Bundt Cakes for their fundraising efforts. “We visit schools in the area and let them know they can buy our bundlets at a discounted price to resell them at their events for fundraising,” said Kuo.
Interested schools should call the bakery in advance to discuss the date and type of fundraiser. Once the quantity and flavors are determined, the schools then prepay at a discount, the number of cakes they want later for pick-up.
“On the day of pick up, they just take them to whatever fundraising event they’re doing, and they can actually sell for any price they want. But we do give a suggested price, and we try to make it really worthwhile for them to have a great product and also raise money for their cause,” she said.
It is best that orders for the cakes are confirmed at least one week in advance of the school’s fund-raising event. The bakery can handle any size order, according to Kuo. “We have people buying one dozen and we have had people buy five dozen” she said.
Nothing Bundt Cakes is also deeply-involved in year-round charity work in Pasadena. When it opened two years ago, the bakery sponsored a benefit day where 20 percent of sales were donated to “Door of Hope” to help homeless families rebuild their lives with transitional housing and a restoration program.
This fall alone, she expects the bakery to be sponsoring dessert at some 20 charity events, including the Lake Avenue Community Foundation, Friends in Deed, and the Pasadena Humane Society. “We are entering gala season. All the philanthropies and charities are hosting their biggest events and we’re sponsoring desserts all through September and October, so we’re going to be all over the place,” she said. “We support these great organizations with desserts so that their guests can really enjoy a great party and raise money for their causes.”
