    Every Cake Has A Story.  When you walk through the French doors, the rich aroma of the French and Belgian chocolates immediately greets you. The Cake Bake Shop is a place that will fill up your senses. Have a French pressed coffee with a slice of homemade cake or pie. Enjoy a cup of warm sipping chocolate topped with fresh whipped cream and a warm cookie right out of the oven.  You can see the locally sourced farm-fresh eggs and the organic milks and creamers nestled in the cooler. Behind the counter, master bakers gently sieve non-bromated flours from Vermont, aluminum-free baking powders & sugars and large pots of French & Belgian Chocolate melting on the stove. Once the oven dings, everything at the Cake Bake Shop has come together to create a truly savory experience. Choose from our list of the best wines & champagnes to accompany any of our cakes, cakelettes, pies & desserts.

    We make all of our desserts every day from scratch with the best butter, chocolates, fruits, eggs & creams.  

    All this is experienced in our sweet little cottage that has been remodeled into a elegant, sophisticated bake shop with our beautiful French chandeliers and French influenced furniture. The Cake Bake Shop  is the perfect place to spend the best part of your day. Let us be part of your story.

    • Dear Gwendolyn - the baby shower was great fun and your cake was fabulous!! No one had the heart to cut into it because it was so beautiful. But, when I finally sliced and served it, the response was a unanimous one- best chocolate cake ever!! It was just delicious, and the frosting was so light that no one left a drop on their plate. I had several people ask me for your business card, so I showed them the pink ribbon & card. I would say you will have quite a few new customers.

      “Monica”· “Indianapolis,

    • OMG,OMG! The dessert was unbelievable. We loved every wonderful bite. We both love fruit, so this was the perfect treat for us. We each had a nice slice, then we ended up standing at the counter giggling and eating more with spoons without putting it on our plates. I was going to call our son and daughter-in-law to share some with them, but Jim said, lets not. How decadent are we? You should defiantly add this dessert to your bakery menu, it is a winner.

      “Jan· “Indianapolis,
