IT HAPPENED IN VEGAS… BUT IT SURE DIDN’T STAY IN VEGAS.
When long-time HR professional Caryn Simons was searching to add the perfect touches to an employee’s retirement celebration at a business meeting in Las Vegas, what she found at the local Nothing Bundt Cakes bakery was something sweet enough to spark a new passion and (soon) a career change.
When life-long friends Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz began making cakes to entertain friends and family back in 1997, they quickly realized what a gap there was in the market for delicious, uncompromising cakes made with real eggs, butter, and cream cheese. Their quest to make the perfect cakes for their friends grew into founding a booming bakery business. In 2014 they opened their 100th bakery nationwide, and have continued growth from coast to coast since.
Simons opened her own “Nothing Bundt Cakes” bakery in Skokie several years ago (one of the first two in Chicagoland). It went so well that she left her former career to launch her second bakery in Kildeer Village Square. Daughter Britnee Luburich, who attended Kendall Culinary School’s pastry program and worked for New-York-based Magnolia bakery’s new shop on State Street for two years, also has a partial ownership stake and is helping Simons introduce their award-winning products to the area. The decadent, slowly melting bites their fans know and love are perfect for all occasions. From full-sized 8” and 10” bundt cakes, perfect for sharing, miniature bundtlets, great for a personal indulgence, and bite-sized bundtinis, sold by the dozen, there is plenty of opportunity to make someone’s day.
“We think of ourselves as Party Planners, because we help people make important celebrations such as Birthdays, Anniversaries and Holidays all the more special,” Simons says.
