The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers at Disney’s BoardWalk now has signage. Two signs were added to the building that once housed ESPN Club and will soon be home to a table-service restaurant and bakery.

The Cake Bake Shop Construction

A construction site with a cream-colored facade on a wooden boardwalk. A sign reading "Coming Soon" is visible, along with pictures of desserts. A person is seated in front of the building.

The signs are white rectangles with “The Cake Bake Shop” in golden lettering. “Cake Bake” is surrounded by golden filigree. There are subtle dots all over the signs, too.

The signs are almost identical in design. The final paneling around the signs has not yet been installed.

According to the concept art, the final restaurant will be white with dark rooftops lined with lights. The Cake Bake Shop retains the basic shape of the former ESPN Club, but the façade’s walls were demolished to be rebuilt with more windows.

Before the signs were added, gray panels were installed over the walls. A thin strip of wood is along this wall of the bakery side.

Paneling remains to be installed over the blue-purple sheathing at the corners of the tower and edges of the dormers. Paneling also needs to be installed on the small overhangs of the rooftops.

Crews have begun to install white pipes for gutters on the corners of the first floor. They are inside metal frameworks that will be covered in paneling to hide the gutters.

The Cake Bake Shop was originally scheduled to open in 2023 but was delayed until 2024. An opening date has not been announced. Gwendolyn Rogers began hiring leadership for the location in December and other positions in March.

Meanwhile, the nearby Blue Ribbon Corn Dogs kiosk is also still under construction after a delayed opening. The kiosk looks close to completion, however, with signage installed in April and awnings added earlier this month.

There’s a pickup window on one side of the stand. A PGT WinGuard sticker and pieces of tape are on the window. Construction of the exterior may be complete while crews finish up the interior.
