Disney BoardWalk’s much-anticipated location of Gwendolyn Rogers’s The Cake Bake Shop will no longer be opening in 2023 as the brand had previously announced. While no official statement has been made, the website recently changed the prospective opening timeframe from “2023” to simply “Coming Soon.” The reasons for the delay are not immediately clear.
“Gwendolyn is delighted to share the first look at The Cake Bake Shop® coming soon to Disney’s BoardWalk at Walt Disney World Resort®! Gwendolyn is bringing The Cake Bake Shop’s exquisite dining, delicious Afternoon Tea, delectable desserts, marvelous champagne and fanciful cocktails for an extraordinary and whimsical experience,” the establishment had previously announced along with photos of construction.
Readers unfamiliar with Rogers’s concept can refer to the description on their website.
“When you arrive you walk through French doors, sparkling chandeliers over head, antiqued mirrors, French inspired furniture, beautiful seasonal decorations, gorgeous cakes on French porcelain platters topped with glass domes.”
“Gwendolyn’s shops offer the most incredible experience from ‘The Best Quiche You Will Ever Have’ to homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, even a true French Croque Monsieur. Behind the kitchen window you can see the master bakers gently sieving non-bromated flours from Vermont, there are large pots of French & Belgian Chocolate melting on the stove, cakes baking in the ovens and decorators frosting the most exquisite cakes.”
Until the Disney BoardWalk location finally opens its doors, readers will have to travel to Indiana for a taste of Rogers’s internationally-recognized creations.
