Boards Installed on The Cake Bake Shop Exterior at Disney’s BoardWalk

New wall material, likely cement board, now covers most of the exterior of The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers, which is under construction at Disney’s BoardWalk.

The gray panels cover most of the blue-purple weather-resistant sheathing.

Square entrance structure for future Cake Bake bakery

The Cake Bake Shop will have two entrances — one for the table-service restaurant and one for the bakery. A white frame is visible around a window on the front of the bakery. Above the entrance is a rectangle of wood where signage will eventually be.

There are small holes above the wood and above the two windows. Some wiring also hangs from the corners. These are presumably for lights and/or awnings that will be installed later.

The paneling continues around the tower above the table service side. The columns of the tower, however, aren’t yet covered. Cement boards are also on the walls of the first floor.

The slanted rooftops feature white sheathing and wood paneling.

A crew member was on a lift in front of the table service entrance. The arched entryway has also been covered in boards, except for the metal frame where a sign will eventually be placed.

More wiring runs through this frame for lighting.

There are also holes along the top.

We also saw a crew member working in front of a window on this side of the building. The window frames are white, and the walls will eventually be painted white, too.

After searching for culinary leaders in late 2023, The Cake Bake Shop began hiring for various positions in March. The restaurant is scheduled to open this year.
