INDIANAPOLIS — A renowned local favorite has announced it will set up shop at a world-famous amusement park.
The Cake Bake Shop — one of Indiana's most popular cake shops — will open a new location at Walt Disney World Resort, in Orlando, Fla., according to a Facebook post from the shop.
It's expected to open in 2023 on Disney's BoardWalk.
"When I opened my first shop in 2014, all I wanted to do was make people happy," said Cake Bake Shop owner and founder Gwendolyn Rogers in a statement.
"It starts with being kind and sharing what you love with others. I knew if I followed my heart and shared what I loved to do then others would love it too. My shops have become a destination for those celebrating, and nothing is more special than creating happiness — this is truly a dream come true," she said.
The Broad Ripple cafe and dessert shop first opened its doors in November 2014 at 6515 Carrollton Ave. In July 2021, it went on to open a second location at 800 S. Rangeline Rd. in Carmel.
Rogers said The Cake Bake Shop has received visits from celebrities including Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks.
The bakery has also been featured on the Food Network, 'Home & Family' and Indianapolis Monthly and has made 'best-of' by Pottery Barn Teen, Oprah Winfrey, and Tiffany & Co., according to its Facebook page.
