The lovely shop is known for it’s elegant, colourful and delicious selection of freshly baked sweet treats and beautifully detailed custom cakes. The daily menu consists of macarons, cupcakes, cookie sandwiches, chocolate covered cake gems, truffles, cake slices, mini cheesecakes and more, which fly out of the door for the daily lineup. The twin sisters, along with their team, strive to provide their valued customers with treats that prove you can have both an exceptionally gorgeous aesthetic without compromising on rich flavour. Their custom and bakeshop treats for any occasion are baked fresh daily, using only the best ingredients. We warmly invite you to stop by our bakery located at 580 Academy Road to try one (or many!) of our freshly baked treats. Grab your goodies to go, or take a seat and enjoy your sweet treats with a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy our boutique atmosphere.

JENNA RAE, CO-OWNER


HEAD CAKE DESIGNER

Jenna is a self-taught baker and cake designer who found a passion for creating custom cakes in 2010. Her classic, feminine approach to cake design, partnered with her eye for detail and on-trend aesthetic, has led Jenna to the forefront of the wedding industry–setting the trends with flawless execution of intricate designs. She founded the storefront in March of 2014, setting the course for the success of the business. Jenna prefers salty chips to super sweet confections, so it’s no surprise her favourite treat is a salted caramel cupcake or macaron.

ASHLEY NICOLE, CO-OWNER

History


The shop’s humble beginnings started with co-owner Jenna Rae baking in community kitchens overnights while working day jobs, until she decided to take the plunge and open a storefront in March of 2014 with the support of her family and friends. With Jenna’s stunning wedding cakes already being featured in highend publications, and her custom cakes being sought out by local celebrity clientele, it wasn’t long before her twin sister, Ashley Nicole partnered with her to help the bakery reach it’s full potential. Ashley Nicole’s impeccable photo styling and design skills, paired with Jenna’s elegant creations, have lead Jenna Rae Cakes to fan favourite awards, down-the-street lineups, and continued success in all areas of product creation and presentation.
