Welcome to the Patty Cake Shop!

Welcome to the Official Patty Cake Shop website!
From 1952 until its close in Sept of 1999, Patty Cake Shop of Duluth, Minnesota was a Duluth Tradition. Thousands of Duluth families grew up with Patty Cake Shop birthday cakes, married with Patty Cake Shop Wedding Cakes and entertained with Patty Cake Shop tortes and cookies.
Jack and Ginny Soetebier grew famous for their Authentic, European Style Bakery, and Fantastic Buttercream Icing. They retired in 1993 and their daughter, Gretchen, bought the shop, running it until 1999.
For approx one year, Patty Cake Shop Buttercream Icing, solid chocolate Sacher Tortes, Mocha Tortes, and Cut-out Cookies were only fond Duluth memories. From 2000-July 2016, Gretchen was baking in the Duluth area, but has now moved on to Kansas, shipping all across the US.
