Cake Bake Shop’s Gwendolyn Rogers on the Inspiration and Recipes for Her Cookbook

Gwendolyn Rogers opened her first Cake Bake Shop restaurant and bakery in 2014 in popular Broad Ripple Village in Indianapolis, IN. This award-winning, globally recognized shop has become a destination for celebrations and special occasions. Rogers began pursuing the idea of a cookbook after numerous customers came into her shop requesting the recipes for her delicious menu items. Her desire to share her love for baking and to allow others to share the recipes with their families has continued to drive her goal of publishing a cookbook. The biggest challenge she has encountered so far in the process is choosing which recipes to include, and making sure they are exactly right. Rogers is in the process of scaling back her favorite recipes and testing them out, but with a second Cake Bake Shop opening in Carmel, IN in the spring of 2019, it's been a slow process. For Rogers, ensuring each recipe is the absolute best it can be is too important to rush.

  • Hi, I am publishing a book on the specification for a Holodeck although not cakes. I am getting the recipes together in order to put a photonic core together and like you a lot of time has passed and sometimes i meet my weekly goal and sometimes i don't.
    Like you I have a massive concept and am trying to scale down to the basics in order for people to be able to follow at a basic level the contents of my book. The book is non-fiction.
    THe Holodeck is massively multicore but I am scaling the photonic computer design section of the book to a single core and to explain indept the design of it with my own concept mathematics and am thus giving a template/recipe to design further.
    I am also giving recipes for the operation of a single user static scene, scrolling scene and multi-user and networked multi-user Holodecks.
    Time is passing quickly and I hope to publish within the next 2 years. I am also using to aid in the writing of the book my own self designed photonic motherboard simulator.
    I found your post helpful.
