Bundt Cake #100: Celebration White

My favorite kind of cake is a piece of birthday cake or wedding cake.  You know…a white celebration cake!  I thought there was no better way to end my 100 Bundt Cakes than with a Celebration White Cake.  The kind of cake you make for special occasions…the simple white cake just means you’re celebrating.

My sweet friend Narci came over to watch me make my final bundt cake and take some pictures along the way…a 100th cake has to be celebrated!
If you want to make my Bundt Cake #100 Celebration White…here is the recipe…
Shopping List
1 box of white cake mix
2 small boxes of instant vanilla pudding
1/2 cup of veggie oil
1 1/4 cups of water
4 eggs
3 teaspoons almond extract, divided
1 can vanilla frosting
sprinkles, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease (I use Pam) a 10 inch bundt pan
In mixing bowl, combine cake mix, puddings, oil, water and eggs with electric mixer.  Add in 2 teaspoons extract and beat until blended.  Pour into prepared bundt pan.
Bake 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Let cake rest on counter in pan 10 minutes.  Then, invert cake onto serving plate to finish cooling.   
To make the frosting, pour remaining teaspoon of almond extract into your canned frosting.  Stir until incorporated.  Frost cooled cake.
That’s it!  I’m done!  I have mixed and matched 100 Bundt Cakes using the same basic recipe.  I’m pretty proud of my little accomplishment.  Don’t be sad that this journey has ended…coming August 25…
I’m going to mix and match 100 bars…get excited!
And for fun, I had Rachel New herself pick out the bar recipe that I’ll be mixing and matching.  She gave me the Original Bundt Cake recipe many years ago, so it only seemed appropriate that she select the bar recipe too.  Without Rachel New and that little bundt cake recipe, none of this would have happened.  Love you Rachel!

  • Maureen W. (Maryland) July 22, 2013 at 1:20 pm

    Congratulations on your 100th bundt cake, Shay!!! Celebration white is definitely the most fitting for the milestone. These recipes definitely need to be bound in a cookbook! I would buy it šŸ™‚
    Fun facts about your bundt cakes:
    1. I own two bundt pans (one metal and one silicone) but never made a bundt cake before I started reading your blog.
    2. Bundt cakes are awesome since you can sample a small slice and then push the ring together without anyone knowing. (I have perfected this technique!)
    3. They are far less work and mess than layer cakes.
    4. As much as I enjoyed your 100 Bundt Cakes, I am even more excited for your 100 bars … they are cousins of the brownie, which, in my opinion, is the best dessert ever.

    Lots of love! You still inspire me every day! XOXO

  • {Hi Sugarplum!} July 22, 2013 at 3:30 pm

    Let's celebrate that adorable green gingham!!! And love that you paired it with hot pink…we were separated at birth, weren't we?!

  • Anonymous July 22, 2013 at 3:57 pm

    Congrats baby! You worked so hard on this and I am so proud of you! Love you!

  • Laurie S July 22, 2013 at 6:00 pm

    Hi Shay! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blogs! Congrats on your 100th bundt cake! I had a feeling it would be a white cake – I scrolled through all the other cakes, and saw that there was no white cake, and I read of your love for wedding cake…

    Can't wait for your 100 bars… so exciting!

    Have a blessed day!

  • Awn July 22, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    Woohoo! Congrats on your 100th cake!

  • Aubrey July 23, 2013 at 8:25 am

    I have a weakness for wedding cake! So excited to try this one, but it will have to wait since the girls and I are making your key lime bundt cake today. šŸ™‚

    Congratulations on reaching 100 recipes! That is pretty spectacular, and you've given me the confidence to mix and match my own bundt cake creations! Thank you, friend!

  • Kathi Mackintosh July 23, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    Congrats Shay! I bought my bundt cake pan this week, so let the baking begin!! I can't wait to try so many of them. (But like your kiddos, I won't be trying the coconut ones! ;-))

  • Meghan July 23, 2013 at 6:42 pm

    Yum! I'm excited for the bars! Can I ask what brand of bundt cake pan you use? Any suggestions? Mine is ok, but it can be a little tricky to shake the cake out without causing any damage.

  • Shawnee July 23, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Made this last night…..so, so, so good!!! I only iced half because my hubby and kids prefer no icing and it is really good both ways!!!!

  • Karen July 29, 2013 at 3:54 pm

    Oh… I'm excited for the new series!

    Bars are among my favorite recipes, so I can't wait to see what you come up with.

  • Tiffany July 29, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    Congrats! That's dedication right there. Very impressed! Looks beautiful, Ms. Queen of the Bundt Cakes!

  • Angela Ellingson September 19, 2013 at 6:27 pm

    I have never made a bundt cake but I am trying this one tomorrow for my son's 1st birthday! šŸ™‚

  • Anonymous October 3, 2013 at 6:49 pm

    Random question- where did you get your wrought iron cake stand? I love it and can't seem to find one anywhere.


  • Mix and Match Mama October 3, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    That cake stand was a gift from my grandmother. I'm not sure where she got it. Sorry!

  • Sara December 25, 2013 at 1:59 am

    I made this for our Christmas Eve dinner tonight and it was a hit! My kids, dad,and husband (and me too) all loved it. I left the frosting off and just drizzled some powdered sugar/milk glaze on with sprinkles, so yummy. Thank you!

  • Mely G June 25, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    I have been eyeing this recipe for about 1 week now. Just got married a month ago and I was hoping I would get a bundt pan as a wedding gift but it didn't happen! But I think I am taking the plunge and baking this puppy up this weekend. I just have to go buy a bundt pan. Can't wait to see how it turns out!!!
