The Cake Bake Shop, which bills itself as a storybook restaurant, is expanding into the Magic Kingdom.
According to a post on the Disney Parks Blog Friday, Gwendolyn Rogers’ Cake Bake Shop will open in 2023 at Disney’s BoardWalk at Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida.
The location will be the third for the restaurant, which opened its original location at Broad Ripple, 6515 Carrollton Ave., in 2014. The second Cake Bake Shop opened at Carmel City Center, 799 Hanover Place, in 2019 .
The Disney Parks blog post describes the Cake Bake Shop project as a table-service restaurant and bakery. The BoardWalk offers dining, shopping, and nightlife along a quarter-mile boardwalk reminiscent of the entertainment of yesteryear in places like Atlantic City and Coney Island in Brooklyn.
Rogers, who grew up in Idaho, opened the first Cake Bake Shop in a house in Broad Ripple. Her cakes have been featured several times in Oprah Winfrey’s O magazine, and Rogers’ cakes, cookies and pies are available for purchase at williams-sonoma.com.
Rogers will publish its first cookbook, “Cakes Vol. 1,” this spring.
