PHOTOS: Windows Installed on The Cake Bake Shop at Disney’s BoardWalk

The first windows have been installed on The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers, a new table-service restaurant and bakery coming to Disney’s BoardWalk at Walt Disney World Resort.

Pairs of white window frames with panes of glass are now on each wall of the building’s tower. When we last checked on The Cake Bake Shop construction, these were still just square holes in the building.

Labels are visible on the insides of the windows. The exterior walls are covered in purple Gold Bond eXP sheathing. The multiple rooves of the tower structure were recently covered in decking.

There are two windows on each full wall of the tower. A window is even visible on the wall that faces the rest of the building. Windows have yet to be installed on the dormer rooves or on the first floor of the building.

Crew member at The Cake Bake Shop

We saw one crew member at the top of a ladder working between the two different structures of The Cake Bake Shop. The restaurant and bakery are taking over what was once ESPN Club. It closed permanently in 2022.

A new doorway is being added on the tower side of the building, where there is currently a plain steel archway. This will lead to the table-service restaurant. The former entrance to ESPN Club, to the right, will lead to the bakery.

Through the steel framework, we can still see lots of exposed wiring and support elements inside the bakery, indicating there is still lots of interior construction work to be done as well.

The Cake Bake Shop was originally scheduled to open last year but was delayed to 2024. In late 2023, Rogers began hiring for The Cake Bake Shop.
