Whether you’re in the mood for a bite of cake or a whole one, Nothing Bundt Cakes in Murfreesboro has you covered.
“They are the most moist and delicious. It’s the best cake you’re ever going to eat, share or give,” said co-owner Lynne Warne.
She and husband, Jeff Warne, opened the first Nothing Bundt Cakes in Tennessee seven years ago in Nashville, followed by a store in Franklin.
“I thought it was kind of crazy. It was such a niche product. But I have such a sweet tooth and I said, ‘Let me be the judge of some good cake.’ And every single one (I tasted) was so good,” Warne said.
After the grand opening Aug. 16, the response has been overwhelming from the Murfreesboro community, Warne said.

Nothing Bundt Cake has 10 flavors in four basic sizes. But each one has the same signature cream cheese frosting. If you’re having an event, Nothing Bundt Cakes offers decorated cakes to suit your special occasion.
There’s red velvet, chocolate chocolate chip, confetti, lemon, cinnamon swirl, marble, pecan praline, carrot, classic vanilla and white chocolate raspberry.
Warne said her favorite flavor changes from time to time. But the No. 1 seller at her stores is definitely the chocolate chocolate chip, followed close behind by red velvet, white chocolate raspberry and lemon. Each one of those four most popular flavors are available in single-serving sizes every day.
The retail store also has cake cutters, serving plates, utensils, balloons, platters, cards and candles for your party, too.
This year marks 20 years since the company was started by friends and fellow bakers, Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz. And on Sept. 9, every store in the company will celebrate by giving away little cakes to patrons who visit that day, Warne said.
“But we’re always giving away free samples. Every day you come in, we’ll have samples,” Warne said.
