Jahurul Islam was batting on 38 and Mohammad Ashraful was 23 not out.
The only wicket to fall was Shahriar Nafees for 29 after the left-handed opener put on 53 runs for the first wicket.
Earlier, Zimbabwe were bowled out for 389 shortly after tea. Brendan Taylor led the way hitting a record 171, the highest score by a Zimbabwe Test captain.
He beat his idol Andy Flower's 156 against Pakistan in 1995. Also his knock took him past Tatenda Taibu’s 153 made in Dhaka in 2005, which was the highest score by Zimbabwean batsman against Bangladesh.
And before lunch Taylor bettered his own career-best score of 117.
The pattern of play was much like the opening day with the two Bangladesh pacers finding it difficult to penetrate the Zimbabwe batting.
Zimbabwe began day two on 217 for four with Taylor on 105 and Elton Chigumbura on 6. They added a further 68 runs in the first session of play losing two wickets.
Chigumbura (12) lobbed a simple catch to bowler Rubel Hossain on the tenth ball of the day, a ball after he had crashed a boundary through the covers. Debutant Richard Mutumbami edged Robiul Islam after a short and circumspect innings, giving the bowler his third wicket.
But thereafter Taylor and Cremer batted their way out of trouble to take Zimbabwe to lunch on 285-6 with Taylor on 135 and his partner on 20.
Bangladesh wrapped up the rest after break with a bit of good fortune.
The Cremer-Taylor partnership was finally broken with the score on 344 after the pair added 106 runs for the seventh wicket.
Cremer reached his highest Test score of 42 before he was taken by a smart slip catch off Shohag Gazi. The one-handed catch held by Mahmudullah gave the bowler his first wicket of the game.
It became 344-8 in the next over bowled by Enamul Haque Jr when Taylor’s defiant 324-ball knock came to an end. He top-edged an attempted sweep and was caught behind by the wicketkeeper.
The ninth-wicket partnership between Shingi Masakadza and Keegan Meth held up Bangladesh for more than 15 overs.
Meth was caught in the covers off Enamul, who finished with three wickets. Shohag picked up his second when Masakadza was caught at point.
Both tailenders scored 21 valuable runs before departing.
That left 25 overs for Bangladesh to begin their response.
Jahurul Islam was almost gone in the first over, but Cremer dropped him on two off Kyle Jarvis' bowling.
Boundaries started to flow immediately after that, Jahurul riding his luck with a pair of edges off Jarvis' third over and Shahriar looking more in control.
After five overs the pair had raced to 32 and Shahriar brought up the 50 with his fourth boundary in the 12th over.
He was first out three balls later, Jarvis sending him back for 29 after locating the leading edge.
Jahurul and new man Ashraful then played through to stumps, their stand punctuated by boundaries and appeals in equal measure.
