I'm a proud mother, wife and owner of Cake a Chance.

I graduated from MVHS in 1997.  I've always loved design and working with colour so I joined the team of Benjamin Moore in 2005. During this time I also attended the ICS School of Interior Design where I graduated with Honours as a Registered Interior Designer. In 2006, with my Interior design background I went on to work as a consultant for Edgewater gifts and gallery. Then in 2007 I accepted another amazing opportunity at the Gun Registry, where I was employed for over 5 years.

My first love is my daughter Kaylee. Like most mothers I want the best for her daughter. Therefore, when Kaylee wanted not 1 but 2 fondant cakes for her 9th birthday that could not be found, I did what most moms would do… I rolled up my sleeves and dove in to making the best fondant cakes for her. 

When I decided to make these cakes it literally changed my life!  My friends and family kept inquiring where I “bought” the cakes from and when I told them I had made them, they all began to ask me to make cakes for them as well.  My hobby quickly bloomed into a full time business.

After 6 months of selling cakes and making a name for myself I hit a bump in the road and thought I may have to cut my new adventure short. I was heartbroken and at stand still but my husband Alan told me not to stop; you had come too far to give up. He built a shop where I could sell my cakes. Another hit! I was there for a year and literally out grew my business in Point aux Carr. So I found the perfect location, I moved Cake a chance to Newcastle and have been there for the last 2 years. I look forward to many years of cake decorating!

Lesley has the ability to transform anything she puts her hands on into a work of edible art.  She has helped expand the Economic growth in Miramichi and choose a business that complimented the other businesses in our community.  Lesley truly believes in supporting local business and community events. She also offers many giveaways on her Facebook page.

            When we asked her why she chose the name “Cake a Chance” Lesley replied in the coolest manner “I had a federal job, a secure job but after talking with my husband I knew I had to give this my all. I left a secure job to pursue my dream, It was risky, but I had to take a chance to “Cake a chance” And there you have it. For Lesley Cake a Chance is her life; as a self-taught artist, she is always looking for ways to improve her business. She’s even created her very own secret recipes that are so good even Grandma doesn't have it!

For all of this, WOMEN Congratulates Lesley Russell!!
