MMMM …. Cake!

Have you heard of The Cake Bake Shop in Broad Ripple (a trendy, hip community on the north side of Indianapolis)?2016-06-22 10.44.14-1Delectable Cake. Check.2016-06-22 10.44.10Adorable location.

So I was glad when we got invited to celebrate a one year old’s birthday at the Cake Bake in Broad Ripple. I had heard wonderful things and it lived up to all that and more.

I had a really hard time deciding what to order, but when I saw the size of the pieces I realized I was going to have to share with my daughter and therefore compromise to her preference which happened to be Cotton Candy Cake (served with a side of cotton candy no less!).2016-06-22 11.05.16But that isn’t all they have. Some of the deliciousness includes: lemon bars, eclairs, raspberry champagne, mixed berry crumble pie, berry cheesecake and much more!

And it’s in the details people … from the menu to the the coffee to the pink receipt you get … it is all coordinated!2016-06-22 10.52.34 2016-06-22 10.58.06And did I mention there were sparkles on some of the cupcakes!?! What?2016-06-22 11.09.09The Cake Bake truly is one of a kind and I already have a list of what I’ll get next time (they serve breakfast too: quiche of the day would be at the top of my order!). The beauty is you can spend a whole day walking and exploring around Broad Ripple and this is just the tip of the iceberg: shops, canal walking, bike trail … it really could be a whole day outing! But, let me know when you are going – I just may join you!
