One of the most incredible bakeries in the United States is the charming Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers. The whimsical atmosphere paired with dreamy desserts makes a visit to the Cake Bake Shop a staple among locals and visitors.

Offering afternoon tea service, a variety of sweet treats, and a full-service restaurant, the Cake Bake Shop can be entirely reserved for weeks to months. These valuable tips will help make your enchanting experience at the Cake Bake Shop a dream come true.

Make A Reservation

The most important tip for visiting the Cake Bake Shop is to make a reservation and make it in advance. Guests can make reservations on Open Table or by calling the reservation line. Keep in mind that if no reservations are available when you call, keep calling back, as many people cancel. We recently got a reservation days before our impromptu trip to Indy by calling daily.

Walk-ins are welcome, but you will likely have an extensive wait or opt to get carry-out from the bakery.

Planning Tip: The Cake Bake Shop does require you to put a credit card on file when making the reservations. You have up to 24 hours before your reservation to cancel. Otherwise, you get charged $10 per person.

There are Multiple Cake Bake Shop Locations

The first Cake Bake Shop is at Broad Ripple Village in Indianapolis, Indiana. The gorgeous restaurant is filled with beautiful decor and delectable display cases full of three-tiered cakes, cheesecakes, pies, and more. The popularity was so immense that Gwendolyn decided to open a second location to accommodate more guests.

Guests worldwide are thrilled about the third Cake Bake Shop location set to open at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn at Walt Disney World Resort in 2023.

When making a reservation, the two Indiana locations are relatively close to each other, only 15 minutes apart. If you can’t get into one, you may be able to get into the other. Staff members can search both locations when you call to make a reservation.

Sample More Than The Cake

While sweet options are often what taste buds are craving, examine the menu to discover a delectable drink menu, savory items such as french onion soup, truffle pomme frites, and various mouth-watering entrees. My daughter adored the edible glitter in their pasta!

If you are searching for another reason to book another reservation, it is to sample more of their extensive menu!

Our favorites are the Chicken Velvet Soup, the French Ham & Brie Sandwich, and the Mixed Berry Cheesecake.

When it is time for dessert, the cake slices are pretty significant. We found that three of us could easily split a slice.

 Planning Tip: Visit any time of the year! The winter wonderland becomes a lush garden of pink florals, topiaries, and captivating centerpieces during the springtime.
