A Second Slice Of The Cake Bake Shop-Indianapolis Monthly

Revisit — A New Layer If you’ve ever nudged your way inside Broad Ripple’s wildly popular dollhouse bakery, The Cake Bake Shop, for a slice of Millionaire Cake, you knew it was just a matter of time before baker Gwendolyn Rogers expanded her pastry enterprise. With its stunning crystal chandeliers, inlaid marble-and-brass logo, and cream tile that blushes to pink in low light, Rogers’s second location (800 S. Rangeline Rd., Carmel, 317-257-2253)in the heart of Carmel City Center is a feat of design and planning. There’s a spacious patio with water-heated floors, a bar with velvet settees, and private dining rooms, plus new offerings like a chocolate fountain. For savory options, Rogers pegged chef-to-the-stars Kelley Milligan to execute a menu of old-school standards: trout amandine, steaks frites, and Rogers’ version of “gumbo ya ya” (no okra but plenty of Crystal hot sauce). Hot, freshly made beignets are also on the menu—one of Rogers’ longtime dreams that, now realized, will surely draw a whole new crowd. https://www.indianapolismonthly.com/food-and-drinks/augusts-first-bite-2019?fbclid=IwAR28q381kQKuN6BoVp7CTFxwstVgn2o1odQ8RMgEjLFJ24q1Rp6BK75FpEI#.XUR6eZVclIc.facebook
