Yesterday was my husband’s birthday, so clearly there had to be cake. Wanting to do something a little different, I decided to go with baby bundt cakes…
These were actually pretty simple and sinfully delicious. I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe and baked for about 14-17 minutes. Honestly a box cake mix would work just fine, and you would probably bake for about as long as recommended for cupcakes, though possibly a few more minutes.
If you look closely, these did not come out of the pan perfectly. Trust me, nobody cared. 🙂 After cooling my baby bundt cakes, I whipped up a chocolate ganache using a recipe from Joy Of Baking. Oh. So. Decadent.
Spooned some on to the bundt cakes and added sprinkles…
I thought it would be yummy to add a bit of caramel to the centers of the bundt cakes…
Just spoon some in…
The caramel sort of soaked into the cakes, so there wasn’t a rush of caramel when you cut into them. But it was very tasty.
And next up is frosting. For caramel buttercream, I simply add some caramel to whatever basic buttercream I’m using. You could add some to a canned frosting as well. Keep it simple!
And then add a scoop to the top of your bundt cakes.
The pretty cake stand is from Costco. I profess my love for these cake stands here!
I think my girls enjoyed the cake…

They look amazing and I’m very excited because I have a mini bundt pan. I also need to make birthday cakes for a friend’s birthday. Can you tell me how many mini bundt cakes you got out of this? Thanks!
