Cotton Candy Flavouring Is Now Available

Just in time to be added to Christmas lists and to make an appearance in your favourite crowd-pleasing holiday treats, the Jenna Rae Cakes Cotton Candy Flavouring is now available online for shipping across Canada!

 

The journey of the Jenna Rae Cakes Cotton Candy Flavouring has been an adventure of trial and error before finding the perfect flavouring for all of our favourite treats. From the beginning, Jenna, Ashley and their sister Chelsea knew they wanted to make treats emulating their childhood sweet treat indulgence of cotton candy.

At first, Jenna tried putting chunks of fluffy cotton candy into buttercream to flavour it. Next, our kitchen went through one flavouring after the next that didn’t meet the standards our flavours at Jenna Rae Cakes have become known for. Then, one day, we found it. A cotton candy flavouring that has the sweet, spun sugar taste that takes you back to your younger days.

 

Our Signature Cotton Candy flavouring has been used in all of our cotton candy treats– from cookie sandwiches to macarons, cotton candy marshmallow bites to our seasonal cotton candy hot chocolate. Our most popular cotton candy item has to be our Signature Cotton Candy Cake which is decorated to be as whimsical looking as the name and flavour would suggest. If it tastes like cotton candy in our shop, it is made using this exact flavouring.

We are now bottling this flavour in-house for you– the home baker with a creative imagination that wants to bring magic into your kitchen with every delicious drop! Click HERE to order a bottle (or two) of our Cotton Candy Flavouring and create anything your heart desires to be cotton candy! We suggest Cotton Candy pancakes, Cotton Candy whipped cream in your hot chocolate or cotton candy icing on homemade cupcakes.
