Baking savant goes big in Broad Ripple
Gwendolyn Rogers is the Taylor Swift of baking cakes, which means Broad Ripple has a new rock star. Rogers, 49, is a pop savant of confections, winning the prestigious London Cake & Bake Show in 2013 without any real professional experience around an oven. That led to a gig hand-delivering one of her cakes to Elton John in Paris. The wife of Indy native and filmmaker J.B. Rogers, she has sunk $300,000 into a new bakery at 6515 Carrolton Ave., betting the kids’ college money that her star will continue to rise. IBJ’s Scott Olson has more.
