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.

Time To Party!

Jenna Rae Cakes Party Squares

 

Our brownie has evolved since the beginning of Jenna Rae Cakes. What started as a sky-high double layered brownie enough to share with at least one more person has transformed a few times to bring us to where we are today.

 

When we were creating our brownies, we always wanted to have at least one layer of super thick, rich, fudgy brownie for you to indulge in. We would add fudge, marshmallow or browned butter frosting in between the layers and top with delicious flavour additions to create a unique flavour of brownie. Truth be told, our brownie was great, but we started to feel like there had to be a better way to jampack flavours into a treat that would be easier to eat while still being similar to a brownie.

 

We began thinking of the delicious squares we’ve all come to know and love from our childhood. We can all remember going to family gatherings where our parents and relatives would whip up a tasty bar to cut up into bite-sized pieces for everyone to enjoy. Dainty trays at Christmas were always filled with Nanaimo Bar and other decadent flavours put into bar form. With these memories flooding back, we knew Party Squares were the perfect replacement for our brownie.

Our team of talented bakers began creating mouth-watering flavour combinations in Party Square form, often still incorporating a brownie or blondie layer as an ode to our original brownie that graced the JRC menu for many years. Now, each week at Academy, we feature a flavour of Party Square. Some of our most recent featured flavours have included Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Milk Chocolate Fudge, Cookie Dough Brownie, Nanaimo Bar Brownie, Cotton Candy Blondie, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter Marshmallow Square, Sticky Coconut Brownie and more!

Winter Menu

The excitement of the holidays are over and the vacationers are posting all their dreamy warm weather photos on Instagram. We are left hanging out together in Winterpeg making the most and actually enjoying the winter months we have come to know, accept and now love.

 

There are so many things we love about Winter in Winnipeg! Being able to spend time at The Forks on the river trail, teaching little ones to skate on outdoor and backyard skating rinks, the experience of Festival Du Voyageur, and how great coming inside feels to enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and the warmth of cozy blankets. Winnipeg in Winter is actually a fun place to be when you know how to embrace it.

 

To embrace all that is beautiful about Winnipeg in winter, we’ve launched our Winter Menu at The Forks. Our holiday favourites like candy cane, sugar cookie and buttertart are back in the JRC vault until December and it’s time to bring back some old favourites. Take a look at our Winter Menu below.
