To celebrate my exchange student's 18th birthday her mother flew in from Rome, and we took her and her best friend to the Cake Bake Shop; it was a dream come true! This beautiful little Parisian-style patisserie is decorated like a pink Spring fantasy with so many perfect little touches from the gorgeous flatware and dishes to the benches covered... More

This place is not very big. I would recommend reservations but you can do walk-in seating, just expect to wait awhile (especially on Saturday). The cakes were good, but for the price and size of each piece we should've shared between two people. You can always order another if you want more.

My girlfriends and I had a girls' day out and it was my first time here. The drinks are so cute and yummy. The Chicken salad sandwich is some of the best I've ever had! (I'm pregnant and am constantly looking for great chicken salad). FOUND IT! I also had a piece of red velvet and it was amazing! Everything... More

There's a lot of pink in this eatery but if you can get by that, the service is top notch. Known for their cakes, they also serve a limited lunch/dinner menu and pies and cookies. It's a fun place for a special occasion if your standards are not high but I did find it overrated and overpriced.

Always a delightful treat. Love coming to The Cake Bake Shop whenever we're in town. The Cake Bake Shop is not just another bakery, this place is an over the top experience! The JBC No. 69 Rosé champagne is absolutely to die for ,as well as their red velvet cake.

We were here to celebrate a 50th birthday with family. We had reserved the back room, which couldn't accommodate our entire group, so some had to leave. The shop is beautiful! Every princess girl's dreams come true with layers of pink, cream, glitter and sparkle. This place is worth a visit just for the decor. The cakes are decadent, and... More

Pink, pink and more pink is a bit of an understatement when describing this cute bake shop. The menu has limited lunch options and they are costly. The desserts will result in weight gain just looking at them. I had the PB Mousse Pie. The mousse was smooth and rich, the chocolate, cookie, crust semi-sweet and crunchy and the ganache... More

Thank you so much for leaving a review on trip advisor. I am so glad you like the pink flowers. I change the decor with the seasons so be sure to come back after Labor Day to see the shop transform into Halloween then Christmas. The Peanut Butter Pie is one of my favorites.

Gwendolyn Rogers has created a storybook restaurant in a cottage that took two and a half years for her to design & remodel. When you walk through the French doors, the sparkling chandeliers, antiqued mirrors, French inspired furniture, beautiful seasonal decorations and the rich aroma of the French chocolate cakes baking in the oven immediately greets you. Enjoy 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. She offers an incredible lunch of ‘The Best Quiche You Will Ever Have’, homemade soups, salades, sandwiches, even a true French Croque Monsieur. The evenings offer charcuterie boards with imported meats, cheeses and olives served on elegant marble tiers. Behind the kitchen window, 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 sweet and savory experience. Choose from our list of the best French wines & champagnes to accompany any of our lunches, cakes, cookies, pies & desserts. Gwendolyn’s Cake Bake Shop has become the destination of Indianapolis for celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and all the special occasions life offers.
