Wish You Were Here!

When the ones we love move away, the holidays can be challenging. The empty seat at the table reminds of when they were around to share in our laughter, our meals and our gratitude during Thanksgiving.

Let those you love know you have been thinking of them and wish they were here by having our 12-macaron gift box delivered straight to their door.

Each 12-macaron gift box is filled with an assortment of delicious fall-inspired flavours including Pumpkin Spice Latte, Cinnamon Bun and Banana Bread along with JRC favourites of Salted Caramel, Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Cup. Add in our ‘thinking of you’ greeting card with a personalized message from you to them and they’ll be calling you expressing how they, too, wish they could be with you over Thanksgiving.

12-macaron gift boxes ship out on Tuesday each week so be sure to order by Monday, October 7th so your loved one will receive their macarons before Thanksgiving arrives, showing you were thinking of them well in advance and wish they could be there. Who knows, maybe the arrival of delicious, chewy macarons on their doorstep in the days leading up to Thanksgiving will encourage them to hop in their car, jump on a train or buy a plane ticket and they’ll surprise YOU at your door on Thanksgiving.

Click here to see our 12-macaron gift boxes and place your order to send your loved ones across Canada a sweet treat.

Celebrate 5 Years With Us!

Jenna Rae Cakes Mini Choquette with Mini Macaron JRC Turns 5

 

We are celebrating 5 years this Saturday, March 30th the best way we know how– sweet treats and an exciting giveaway!

 

When we first opened our doors on Academy road 5 years ago, we had no idea what the future would hold. What we originally thought would be a little storefront to keep Jenna busy while she worked on wedding cakes in the back turned into two shops, shipping macarons across Canada, and a hard-working team of incredible staff who help us bring our vision to life each and every single day. Had you asked us if this is where we thought we would be when we first opened, we could tell you that the day our doors first opened we had no idea what was ahead.

 

It is thanks to YOU, our customers, that we are where we are today. Without you coming to our shop, waiting in the line ups, offering suggestions on what you’d like to see on our menu next and buying our cooler clear of sweet treats, we wouldn’t be celebrating this birthday! Thank you for coming to our shops time and time again, bringing your friends and family to try a treat, ordering a birthday or wedding cake, and sharing your posts on Instagram. You helped get us to where we are today and we are so grateful.

 

To celebrate 5 years, we are having a birthday celebration at our shop on Academy on Saturday, March 30th from noon until 5pm. We are handing out complimentary mini mac-a-choux to the first 200 customers. Each vanilla chouqette is topped with a mini birthday cake macaron and a candle!

 

Plus, everyone who walks in the door can enter their name to win our grand prize… macarons for a year! If you are the lucky winner, you’ll receive a 12-macaron gift box shipped to your door the first full week of every month (April 2019-March 2020). Plus– you’ll receive all holiday box collections (additional box at Easter, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day).*

 

We are so excited to celebrate 5 years with you this Saturday!

 

*Contest entry only available by stopping by in person to our Academy road location on Saturday, March 30th. Winner will be drawn at random and announced on our Instagram story. Macarons will be shipped out to the provided local address the first Tuesday of every month. Additional holiday boxes to be sent out when available.

Mini Egg and Creme Egg Macarons are Now Shipping

Since launching Mini Egg everything last week, our Instagram direct messages have been flooded with requests to add Mini Egg and Creme Egg macarons to our assorted macaron box gift box available for shipping across Canada. As it turns out, people across our wonderful country want to try the delicious Easter flavours.

 

We were going to wait until the launch of our entire Easter menu to add Mini Egg and Creme Egg macarons to our shipper box… but how could we say no to the many requests we were receiving!

Mini Egg and Creme Egg macarons are now available in our 12-macaron gift box that can be shipped to your friends, family or even yourself anywhere across Canada! We want you, no matter where in Canada you are, to try our popular flavours that sell out quickly each day at this time of year. Our 12-macaron gift box will come assorted with Mini Egg and Creme Egg macarons, as well as other Jenna Rae Cakes signature macarons including salted caramel, cookie dough, cotton candy and birthday cake.

 

Our 12-macaron gift boxes ship out every Tuesday and will arrive within 1-3 business days at your doorstep ready to be savoured. Pop the macarons in the fridge for an hour and then enjoy. They’ll be chewy and the flavours will make you wish you had ordered two boxes instead of one! Shop our 12-macaron gift box now.

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

jenna rae cakes will you be my bridesmaid macarons

Raise your hand if you got engaged recently!

If you’re sitting there with your hand raised, a ring on your finger and a smile on your face, this blog post is for you! First, we want to say Congratulations! You are going to marry the person you’d love to spend the rest of your life with and that is very exciting. Second, we want to say that we hope the proposal was everything you ever wanted! Considering the recent holiday seasons of Christmas and Valentine’s Day we are sure your sweetheart could pop the question in the most romantic and perfect way.

 

Chances are if you’re newly engaged, you’ve already been dreaming up your ideal wedding. Sometimes, even before a date is set, you already know who it is you want in your bridal party. When you think about the people who you want to stand beside you on the day you wed, there are friends you can’t imagine taking this next step of life without them there to support you, help you along the way and celebrate with you.

 

For those special people in your life, we created our Bridesmaid Macaron Box. Once a customer request, we now offer our Bridesmaid Macaron Box to anyone who calls and is looking for a sweet way to pop the question “Will you be my bridesmaid?”

 

Our Bridesmaid Macaron Box comes in our signature gold-foil macaron box and has 6 macarons laid out to reveal the message “Will you be my bridesmaid?” when the box is slid open. When you place your order, you can let us know a preferred colour palette and we will do our best to accommodate with the flavours of macarons available on the date you’ll be picking up your order. Writing on white or light coloured macarons will be black.

 

The Bridesmaid Macaron Box can also be customized to ask, “Will you be my maid of honour” so everyone in your bridal party can receive a sweet treat when you ask them to stand beside you on one of the most memorable days of your life.

 

To place an order for Bridesmaid Macaron Boxes, simply give our shop on Academy a call at 1-204-691-4222 and let us know how many boxes you’d like, your preferred colour palette and the date you’d like to pick them up on.

 

Congratulations once more on your engagement and happy wedding planning!

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.
