Before The Cake Bake Shop
opens its doors in 2014, its cupcakes will have played a role in a feature film.
Gwendolyn Rogers, owner of the Broad Ripple bakery, will fly to Atlanta next week where she’ll make cupcakes for several scenes in the upcoming “Dumb and Dumber” sequel, “Dumb and Dumber To.”
Filmmakers Peter Farrelly and Bobby Farrelly had Rogers in mind when they wrote scenes. Her husband, Park Tudor graduate J.B. Rogers, is a producer and assistant director on the film. He’s worked on most of the Farrelly Brothers films, including the original “Dumb and Dumber.”
“When Pete and Bob found out I was opening a cake store, they wrote in the scenes for me,” said Rogers.
In the first scene, a dream sequence, Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) grabs a some mini-cupcakes from of a platter, eats a few and then flings several across the room in a ninja fight scene. Set at a prom, Gwendolyn Rogers will use purple, gold and silver to match the set colors.
Rogers will spend three days in Atlanta and return Oct. 29-31 to make cupcakes for the film’s final scene, which will feature Carrey, Jeff Daniels and Kathleen Turner. A Cake Bake Shop box is scheduled to make an appearance as well.
A mother of three boys (the fourth generation to attend Park Tudor), Rogers said she hopes the film will make The Cake Bake Shop a place Indianapolis will be proud of.
“I want this to be a destination where people will say, ‘That’s the store that’s in Dumb and Dumber To,’” she said.
The shop, scheduled to open by April at 6515 Carrollton Ave., will feature fresh-baked goods, outdoor seating, espresso, wine and champagne in a “glam-French” inspired setting.
“Dumb and Dumber To” is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2014.
