Lesley and John Rouwenhorst

Hello, my name is Lesley and I am the owner of Lesley’s Cakes here in Eagle River, Alaska. Thank you for visiting my site.

I have been in the cake business for over 30 years in such roles as baker, pastry chef, cake designer, and bakery manager. I have designed a cake program for a major retailer, managed bakeries for several international retailers, and have been in charge of cake decorating lessons for new staff. I’ve even won a county fair Blue Ribbon for one of my cakes. The experiences I have gained at each step of my career have helped me fine-tune my skills so that one day I could start my own business, and here I am!

Just like others with a tradecraft skill I was asked by friends and family to design and make wedding, birthday, corporate and anniversary cakes outside of my regular working hours. Loving what I do, I easily found time around my work schedule to help out. But as my friends and family passed on my name to their friends and friends of friends, I found that my free time was disappearing. It was then that I decided to start Lesley’s Cakes.

Starting Lesley’s Cakes has been one of the best experiences of my life. I have been able to incorporate all my past experiences into a single, fun, and exciting job! I get to be involved in the complete cake process, from meeting new customers, all the way through to setting cakes up at special events. Each one of my customers brings something new and I never get tired of seeing the success of uniquely designed cakes come to life.

If you are in the need of a specially designed cake for any occasion I would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact me at: 907-687-9757. Just ask for Lesley. You can also send me an email using the Request a Quote form.

Thank you again for taking the time to visit the Lesleyscakesllc.com. I look forward to helping you create a deliciously beautiful cake for your next special event.
