Oprah. Elton John. Justin Timberlake. What do all of these celebrities have in common? They all love the decadent cakes at The Cake Bake Shop! As luck would have it, this internationally acclaimed bakery recently opened a new location in Carmel, just 20 minutes from Maple Knoll Apartments.
Both Cake Bake shops are owned by award-winning chef and baker Gwendolyn Rogers.
The new 3,600 square foot restaurant in Carmel is reminiscent of an elegant country cottage. Before you step inside, you’ll probably want to take pictures of the restaurant’s striking white-washed exterior. With floral accents and gold trim, the restaurant’s stylish character is unmistakable from afar.
Meanwhile, a large window display features an animatronic unicorn, adding a touch of whimsical fun to the entire structure. Inside, chandeliers and stunning floral arrangements highlight the elegance of its ambiance.
Don’t let the name fool you, The Cake Bake Shop offers a lot more than sweet treats. In fact, the on-site restaurant serves lunch and dinner every day. The seasonal menu includes a large variety of gourmet soups, salads, entrees, and sandwiches. Don’t forget to sample classic favorites like lemon Parmesan chicken, roasted salmon filet, or the French ham & brie sandwich.
If you prefer a shared plate, the restaurant also offers a decadent charcuterie board that includes freshly sliced meats, cheese, and seasonal fruits and nuts.
After you marvel at the restaurant decor and finish your lunch, it’s time for the main attraction: dessert! The cake menu is extensive and each item appears to be more decadent than the last. Whatever you do, be sure to try a slice of Oprah’s favorite, the mint chocolate chip cake.
Or, perhaps, you may prefer Elton John’s favorite: “Gwendolyn’s Famous Earl’s Court Chocolate Cake.” This award-winning cake was featured on the Food Network’s “Guilty Pleasures” show. Then again, you won’t want to miss a chance to try one of the seasonal cakes like caramel popcorn or chocolate pumpkin.
With so many tempting choices, you may need two or three (or more) visits to The Cake Bake Shop to satisfy your sweet tooth. Luckily, this award-winning bakery is located just a short drive from our apartments in Westfield.
