Is anyone else (im)patiently counting down the days until October 6th arrives? Our entire team here at Jenna Rae Cakes is so excited to get a copy of Jenna Rae Cakes and Sweet Treats in our hands!
The recipes in Jenna Rae Cakes and Sweet Treats come straight from the JRC Kitchen and our team had their work cut out for them scaling back our recipes and testing smaller batch sizes so that you'd be able to make a dozen cupcakes instead of a hundred and a small batch of macarons instead of our racks full of macarons each and every day. This meant our team did a lot of testing and tasting of every single recipe the book has to offer and each team member definitely acquired a favourite or two along the way.
Let's find out what our team's favourite recipes are from Jenna Rae Cakes and Sweet Treats!
"My favourite recipe is the cream puff, especially the pavlova one. I love that you can fill cream puffs with whatever flavour you can dream of. The pavlova one is my personal fav because the light, tangy wildberry whipped cream inside a sweet, crunchy meringue coated puff is the perfect pair!" - Dennilyn, Baker
"I love the Red Velvet Cookie Sandwich. I love red velvet anything and the cream cheese buttercream inside is so good!" - Leah, Front of House
"My favourite is the Carrot Cake Cupcake. Fall is my favourite season and the Carrot Cake Cupcake is really like fall in a cupcake." - Amelia, Front of House
"I love the Pumpkin Cupcake! It's so good on its own before the frosting is added." - Tori, Baker
"My favourite is the Sticky Coconut Brownie Party Square. The sticky coconut topping reminds me of coconut macaroons. It's so delicious." - Beatriz, Baker
"I love the Peanut Butter Marshmallow Square cake. It's the same cake that my sister had at her wedding so it has such good memories attached to it." - Amirah, Baker
"The Everything Bagel Cream Puff is my favourite recipe. When we used to make them at the shop it was one I always loved making. It's a great combination of salty and slightly sweet." - Kim, Baker
"My favourite recipe from the book is the Raspberry Champagne Marshmallows. They have a nice fizzy pop to them and such a great flavour." - Jordain, Head Baker
"Peanut Butter Marshmallow is my fav flavour we do at JRC because it’s so nostalgic for me. The peanut butterscotch flavour is the TASTIEST THING ON EARTH! Plus who doesn’t love rainbow marshmallows?" - Noah, Front of House
"My favourite would have to be the Salted Dark Chocolate Espresso macaron! It is such a good combo of flavours. I absolutely love coffee and anything salty so this flavour is amazing!" - Mackenzie, Front of House
"The Birthday Cake Batter macarons were the first thing I ever tried from Jenna Rae Cakes and they are still my favourite to this day." - Jenna R., Customer Service Representative
"I remember making S'mores Cookie Sandwiches when I first started at JRC and I couldn't get enough of the toasted marshmallow! Definitely a nostalgic favourite." - Aelea, Marketing and Communications Assistant
