Our most favourite day of the year might be over, but we are reliving the magic again and again with our Harry Potter Day 2018 recap!

It was so amazing to see how many Harry Potter fans came out to our shop on Academy road and waited patiently in line for our lineup of magical treats. The lineup started just after 9 in the morning and we felt so grateful for each and every single person who wanted to to be first in line to get their Dragon Egg and Golden Snitch cupcake before they sold out! We loved seeing people who dressed up in their robes, wore their house colours, and embraced the spirit of the day as much as our staff.  We said Alohomora to our door half an hour early and started serving witches, wizards and muggles alike their desired assortment of whimsical delights!

 

 

 

The menu was our most comprehensive yet and our staff really outdid themselves with a line up of old favourites like Butterbeer, Pumpkin Pasties and sorting hat cupcakes. Plus NEW items we are sure will make a comeback next year like Liquid Lucky Charms macarons, Salted Caramel Stuffed Chocolate Frogs, and Butterbeer Philosopher Stone cake gems!

We were so excited to bring you all something extra magical this year with our Dragon Eggs! Only 100 eggs were made and 4 lucky muggles found a handwritten scroll inside deeming them the winner of $25 to use at Jenna Rae Cakes!

We are so grateful for each and every person who came out and joined in our obsession with Harry Potter! We can’t wait for next year as each year just gets bigger and better!

 

Fun Fact: Each Jenna Rae Cakes staff member has taken the Sorting Hat test on Pottermore. Most of the Jenna Rae Cakes staff fall into either Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff with a small crew of Gryffindors and Jenna being our only Slytherin!

 

Until next year…we solemnly swear we will be up to no good 😉
