About Jenna Rae Cakes
Jenna (a cake designer) and Ashley (a graphic designer) are twin sisters, best-selling authors, judges on Food Network Canada’s Wall of Bakers, best friends and co-owners of Jenna Rae Cakes. Together, they’ve built their company with a focus on a love for celebration, family and quality, and have expanded to three bakery locations and a namesake collection that includes party goods, baking essentials, apparel and jewelry with the same sweet whimsy that Jenna Rae Cakes is known for.
We take immense pride in being a sweet part of Manitoban’s celebrations for the past 9 years, from everyday treats to milestone events like weddings and birthdays. Every macaron, cake, cookie sandwich and more is lovingly created by our team of talented bakers in our commercial kitchen in Winnipeg, lead by our head baker, Jordain Houdayer. Jenna Rae Cakes is committed to working with local vendors whenever possible, and feel fortunate to be able to support the local community with JRC Birthday Cake Club, a charity initiative where we partner with Toba Centre, The Children’s Hospital Foundation, and Ronald McDonald House Charities Manitoba to provide birthday cakes to kids receiving their services over their birthday.
In October 2020, they published their first cookbook Jenna Rae Cakes and Sweet Treats with Penguin Random House, which quickly became a best-seller. More cookbooks are in works! They made their TV debut as judges on Wall of Bakers on the Food Network. Their business and beautiful baked goods have been featured on The Food Network, NBC, The Globe and Mail, CTV’s The Social, Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine and more. You can see their work as food stylists on the Hallmark Channel, and they’ve collaborated with brands like Amex, Colour Mill, The Golf Channel, Smash and Tess, Benefit Cosmetics, Smirnoff, Coach, Mercedes Benz and more.
9 years and millions of macarons later, we can’t even begin to express our gratitude for this journey and can’t wait to see what is next! We're so thankful that we get to work side-by-side with our family (looking at you, Trev and Dad!) and amazing team every day. We hope we can serve you soon and you can experience some Jenna Rae Cakes magic for yourself!
