The Cake House was founded by Louise Stromberg and began its great journey of providing custom wedding cakes to Des Moines and Central Iowa in November 1969.
As Louise became the mother of four sons, she always desired a daughter. Since that did not happen, she chooses to see each bride as her daughter for the day. Brides are given the very best attention and dedicated love to make sure they get a wedding that will meet their greatest expectations.
Our business has been built on honesty and integrity all these years. Quality and satisfaction has been and will always be the goal of The Cake House. This tradition carries to the next generation with son Larry Pauley & his wife, Cindy. Larry brings with him over 20 years of retail store management experience at WalMart and National Hardgoods. His wife Cindy has over 12 years with the West Des Moines school district and 10 years with Wells Fargo Consumer Business. Making your wedding day a joyful event and a lifetime of cherished memories is what makes baking and decorating skills a great asset in our lives.

"I wanted to tell you what a "hit" your wedding cake was. Not only was it beautiful, but everyone raved about how great it tasted. My daughter just told me I should get married again so we could order another cake. ...I don't plan on ever getting married again but I shall keep you in mind for special occasions and to recommend to friends."
A Christian-owned business
