Sugar Blossom Pop Up Shop

You’re invited to join us on Sunday, September 30th from noon-4pm at our shop on Academy as we host the Sugar Blossom Jewelry Pop Up Shop!

 

Kelli from Sugar Blossom has been working hard over the past few months on the latest collection of beautiful pieces we are sure you will love. We’ve stocked Sugar Blossom jewelry since the beginning of Jenna Rae Cakes and we love supporting our local maker community.

 

At the pop up you’ll be able to purchase some sweet treats to enjoy while you shop the entire Sugar Blossom Fall/Winter collection. Plus, Glitter and Glue Parties will be providing a gorgeous selfie wall so you can show off your new pieces of Sugar Blossom jewelry in a photo that is worthy for Instagram.

 

 

Check out the beautiful collection below and share this post with a friend who you’d love to join you at the pop up!

Giveaway with Portia-Ella

We wanted to introduce you to one of our favourite local beauty destinations– Portia-Ella!

 

If you haven’t heard of Portia-Ella yet, you need to check out this incredible store full of Canadian brands that put ethics and quality at the top of their list of values. Portia-Ella specializes in natural beauty that isn’t tested on animals, doesn’t use slave labour and is actually made of all the good stuff that nourishes your skin. From makeup to skincare, Portia-Ella has everything you need to pamper and care for your skin as we head into the cooler months when our skin is naturally adjusting to the harsher climate.

 

Ashley met Julie (one of the owners) at an Ace event in the city. Julie is wonderful and super passionate about the business and educating people on ethical beauty. She loves to reinforce the fact that you don’t have to compromise quality in any way to buy local and chemical-free. Her passion for her store and how to remain true to her values in all she does is absolutely inspiring.

 

Portia-Ella is located in the outlet mall and as soon as you walk in, you’re immediately transported into a beautiful, nourishing space that smells beautiful and looks modern and inviting. The store is filled with so many great products, brands (including companies from right here in Manitoba!) and price points to choose from. I know I am amazed to find ethically made makeup at half the price of your standard beauty store.

 

Revamp your beauty routine for fall and indulge your sweet side with our Jenna Rae Cakes X Portia-Ella giveaway!

Jenna Rae Cakes X Portia-Ella Giveaway

 

We are so excited to share with you our love for Portia-Ella and we want to wish Julie and the Poria-Ella team the best as they are expanding across Canada soon!

 

From Portia-Ella: “Your skin absorbs the ingredients found in your makeup and skincare! Fillers, parabens, additives can be toxic, affect hormone function and fertility. Animal cruelty is awfully outdated and child labour shouldn’t be included in anyone’s beauty routine… right?

Good news is you don’t need to compromise. Upgrade your routine at Portia-Ella. YOU redefine beauty through ethical standards. Top performing cruelty-free, fair trade, vegan, toxin-free products. A proudly Canadian curation. What’s your ethic?”

Everything To Know About Cakes!

Aside from being known for our macarons, Jenna Rae Cakes is also known for our delicious variety of Signature Cakes and Jenna’s one-of-a-kind custom cake creations! We receive many questions about our cakes from how far in advance to order, to what the process is like for a custom cake, so we thought we would take to our blog to share some answers and give you the inside scoop on our scrumptious cakes.

SIGNATURE CAKES

Flavours

All Signature Jenna Rae Cakes are created by stacking four layers of delicious cake with three layers of decadent fillings. The finishing touches of various toppings, both flavourful and decorative, ensure each cake is handmade to perfection to give your special occasion the sweetness it deserves. Our decorative finishes are a great way to customize our signature cakes to suit your event.

 

Our website showcases 20 of our Signature cake flavours including favourites like Cookie Dough, Salted Caramel Toffee Crunch, S’mores, Birthday Oreo, Pistachio White Chocolate, Raspberry Lemon and more. Our most recent addition to our line of Signature cake flavours is the beloved Peanut Butter Marshmallow Square. To view our entire list of flavours, visit the Signature cakes page on our website.

Decorative Add-Ons

While our Signature cakes look beautiful just as they are, it’s often nice to add some decorative add-ons so the cake can really match the personality of the party or person the cake is for! We offer a variety of customizations to take your cake to the next level. Our customizations include ombre buttercream, chocolate ganache drip, an edible greeting disc, macarons, sugar blossoms, sugar flowers and pearls, and, of course, the works– a delicious addition of a variety of our sweet treats including macarons, meringues, chocolate covered Oreos and chocolate covered cake gems. The works is the perfect addition for any person who has a sweet tooth. Learn more about our customizations here.

Our small yet mighty cake department books up quick! Please note that we typically require 2-3 weeks notice for cake orders. To order, please call our Academy location at 1-204-691-4222 or email jenna@jennaraecakes.com

 

Pricing

Our Signature cakes are priced by size of the cake, which also shows how many servings a cake can be sliced into. When we talk with customers on the phone, they often think a 6″ cake is quite small– remember, it’s 4 layers high! Our cakes are deceivingly large!

6” (Small) 6-10 servings – $50

8” (Medium) 12-18 servings – $70

10” (Large) 24-30 servings – $100

To find out which to-go cakes are available, give our shop on Academy a call at 1-204-691-4222 or visit our daily menu to see which cakes are still available.

CUSTOM CAKES

We understand the joy that a completely custom and special cake can bring to any celebration. Jenna Rae Cakes has become a Winnipeg favourite for sculpted 3D cakes and multiple tiered designs. Jenna will work with you to create a custom edible work of art for your theme, budget, and style!

 

Flavours

Our custom cakes can be any of our signature flavours– it’s up to you! The beauty of a tiered cake is the ability to try multiple flavours in one beautifully designed cake. We suggest taking a look through our flavour list before emailing with your request.

The Process

A custom cake is more than just a cake, it’s a completely customized edible work of art that is sure to exceed your expectations and add the ‘wow’ factor to your next celebration. Since a custom cake is just that, custom, you will work directly with Jenna to ensure your cake is exactly what you envision.

 

 

Step 1 – Email your request

We always recommend getting your custom cake order in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. So, as soon as you know the date for your event, email jenna@jennaraecakes.com to get the process started! Be sure to include the date you’d like your cake for, the number of guests you’d like the cake to serve, and any design inspiration you have.

 

Step 2 – Design and confirmation

Now that we have the information that we need, Jenna will work with you to discuss event details, flavour options, budget and design ideas. All of the design and pricing details will be confirmed with Jenna via email. Once everything is approved, a deposit of 50% is required to save the date. Please note that your order will not be confirmed until the deposit is paid.

 

Step 3 – Enjoy!

The remaining 50% deposit must be paid on or before the day of your pick up. We can take a credit card number over the phone if you’d prefer to skip the line-up at the bakery. Your cake will be packaged up in a box and can be transported on a flat surface in your vehicle (we typically recommend the trunk of an SUV). Last but not least – enjoy your beautiful custom cake!

 

Pricing

Pricing starts at: 6″: 6-10 servings ($50) | 8”: 12-18 servings ($70) | 
10”: 24-30 servings ($100) | mini 2-tier: 20 wedding servings ($200) | 2-tier: 35 wedding servings ($300) | small 3-tier: 50 wedding servings ($500) | large 3-tier: 75 wedding servings ($750) | 4+ tier: custom quote, please contact us!

There’s something so special about a cake for a celebration– it shows how much thought and love was put into planning a celebration and makes those in attendance feel loved and like part of the experience. A cake is designed to be shared with those you care about, to be enjoyed over laughter and well wishes, and leave no guest without the perfect amount of dessert for a ‘small slice’ can be as enjoyable as a big slice.
