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.

Best Moments of 2018

We can’t believe 2018 is already coming to an end! Does anyone else feel like time goes by a little faster each year? 2018 was a year full of fun and adventure at Jenna Rae Cakes and we are so excited to look back at some of our favourite moments with you. While so many moments stand out, and we are sure each staff member could contribute a list of their favourite moments here at JRC, below are our top moments of 2018!

 

Best Moment #1
Opening our second location at The Forks

Since opening up our first shop on Academy, we’ve been hearing people ask us if we ever planned to open a second location. While we initially thought our second location might be out-of-province, opening up a second location at The Forks in the iconic marketplace has been a dream come true! Our second location has allowed us to serve Winnipeg in the place they love to be and we are so grateful for each and every person who has supported our second location by stopping by and picking up a few treats and taking a photo with our gold JRC logo.

With the opening of our second location came the addition of more staff! We have more staff on board right now than we ever had before and it’s been wonderful to grow with a team of dedicated, hardworking and creative bakers and customer service staff who all believe in the potential of our little business.

 

 

Best Moment #2
Maggie Austin Workshop in Washington

Jenna and Ashley attended a cake decorating workshop in May with Jenna’s idol, Maggie Austin. Jenna learned many new decorating and flower techniques that she incorporated into her own wedding cake and the cakes of the happy couples she had the honour of creating cakes for throughout 2018. The inspiration from that one workshop is still going strong.

 

 

Best Moment #3
Easter Eggs

At Easter this year we launched our Chocolate Eggs! Each egg was handmade by our head baker, Jordain, and was filled with gumballs, meringues and sprinkles. Chocolate Eggs made their way back to our menu as Dragon Eggs on Harry Potter Day as well. These fun creations are now going to be a staple on the JRC menu when they fit the holiday.

 

 

 

Best Moment #4
Jenna’s Wedding

Jenna’s wedding was definitely a highlight for JRC! Her stunning cake (which we promise we will show you soon!) was a show-stopping feature at the wedding. Each guest received a custom designed 6-macaron box as their favour, and the sweets table was stacked full of sweet JRC treats and Mike and Jenna’s favourite flavour of JRC cake! The whole team really pulled together to create the sweet treats for Mike and Jenna’s guests to enjoy and the wedding was a wonderful celebration of their forever-love.

 

 

Best Moment #5
Attending OMG Dessert Goals

In October Jenna, Ashley, Trevor and Jordain headed to New York for OMG Dessert Goals! OMG Dessert Goals is a curated event filled with only the best desserts available in New York City. Our team conquered the event and, surprisingly, didn’t go into a sugar coma. This event inspired us and challenged us to push our limits on what we create and the flavours we combine. We can back to Winnipeg feeling ready to try new things!

 

 

Best Moment #6
Jenna’s Pregnancy

We are so excited to welcome another little one into our lives (and kitchen)! Jenna announced she is expecting a sweet little baby girl in 2019 and we couldn’t be more thrilled. Leo was our first ‘bakery baby’ and it has been so fun to watch him grow up surrounded by the business we’ve worked hard to create. We look forward to Jenna’s little girl joining Leo as they explore and learn the ins and outs of baking sweet treats.

 

 

Best Moment #7
A Super Secret Project

We are working on a super secret project set to launch in 2020 and we are over the moon excited to share this with you…in 2020! We’ve already begun working on this exciting project, making it a highlight for 2018. We know the suspense is hard to take so trust us when we say this project will be the answer to a lot of inquiries we receive daily.

 

 

This entire year has been a big time for growth and change at Jenna Rae Cakes. We are always working to improve the sweet treats we are putting out and grow in a sustainable way so more people can enjoy the goodies we have to offer. Thank you for your support over this past year. Our best moments are only made possible because you support us. We look forward to all that 2019 has in store (and online) for us and for you!

It’s time for the Holidays with JRC!

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear… and sharing festive treats with the ones you love! The Holidays have arrived at Jenna Rae Cakes and we are so excited to share with you the lineup of festive flavours you’ll be able to find at our Academy Road and The Forks locations all season long.

We assembled a lineup of our classic favourites, as well as a few new flavours, to bring you a holiday menu that is sure to warm the hearts and bellies of those you spend time with during this season of warmth, love and celebration. As you gather with friends and family this holiday season, we wish you joy, cheer and a few extra gifts from Santa.

Take a look below at all the fun flavours you’ll be able to find at Jenna Rae Cakes this holiday season. Plus, keep reading to see our extended holiday hours that will arrive closer to Christmas!

Fall has arrived at JRC!

We can’t believe summer has come an end and fall is knocking on our door!

What’s On The Menu At The Forks

Our second location has been so well received and we couldn’t be more excited to be in this iconic Winnipeg location. With the opening of our shop in The Forks, we’ve been receiving questions about what exactly is on the menu…

Cookie Sandwiches Mousse Cups Macarons and Cookie Dough Cups by Jenna Rae Cakes

 

Unlike our shop on Academy road, in which the menu changes daily for macarons and cookie sandwiches,  The Forks has a set menu of items that will be rotated out on a seasonal basis. This means you can try all of our seasonal menu items at your leisure without feeling like you need to rush in to get your favourite items all in one day out of fear you will have missed your opportunity until they come around again!

 

This set menu of JRC’s most popular flavours ensures each customer can try one of our most popular treats each time they stop by! No more waiting for Instagram menu updates to see if Pistachio or Salted Caramel are on the menu the day you plan to swing by!

 

Below you’ll find our current menu!

This menu won’t be around forever as we are updating our menu for Fall starting on September 1st, so be sure to stop by soon to grab our more seasonal flavours before they are replaced with autumn-inspired flavours of pumpkin and apple!
