Where to go: The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers
Address: 6515 Carrollton Ave., Indianapolis
What to get: Lemon Blueberry Cake
Anna’s take: The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers is an adorable little shop, adorned with flowers and all things girly, nestled in Broad Ripple that serves up delicious, giant slices of cake. Other menu items, like quiche and sandwiches, also are available. I went for a birthday celebration (my birthday is June 25, which just happens to be when this print edition is published, so feel free to email me and wish me the happiest of days), and ordered a slice of the Lemon Blueberry Cake. As the name implies, it is lemon cake layered with house-made lemon curd and blueberries. It is decorated with fresh blueberries and is a refreshing, tasty option for those who like fruity cake.
Suggested pairings: JCB No. 69 Rose. This is a sparkling, Brut rose French wine. What’s better than pairing bubbles with cake? $13 per glass or $62 for the bottle.
