BDI x JRC

Summer is here! It’s time to enjoy those long hot days and warm nights before they leave us all too soon! Last year we introduced you to our collaboration with Bridge Drive-In, a classic Winnipeg establishment that we’ve spent our time frequenting for as long as we can remember. It’s a Winnipeg tradition to head down to BDI and enjoy their delicious flurries and other ice cream treats while walking down the bridge and taking in the summer sunshine. This year, we are collaborating once again with BDI and we are so excited to have a new menu of delicious flavours for you to enjoy!

Take a look below at our menu with BDI which is currently available at their location on Jubliee.

 

COOKIE DOUGH FLURRIES

*Can all be made vegan by asking for vegan soft serve!*

We introduced you to this treat last year and it was so popular we brought it back this year! A generous amount of Jenna Rae Cakes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is swirled into vanilla soft serve! Ask for vegan ice cream and this is a delicious treat you’ll come back to time and time again!

 

🍒 Imperial Cookie Dough 🍒

We’ve taken a generous amount of our staff and customer favourite Imperial Cookie Dough swirled it into delicious vanilla soft serve along with jam and imperial cookie royal icing! Each Imperial Cookie Dough flurry is a beautiful pastel shade of pink and is topped with a maraschino cherry!

 

🍰 Birthday Batter Cookie Dough 🍰 

If you love birthday cake batter and cookie dough then you’re going to LOVE our Birthday Batter Cookie Dough Flurry! Vanilla soft serve is filled with generous scoops of Birthday Cake Batter Cookie Dough and Pink Birthday Batter Buttercream both swirled in and is topped with sprinkles! Delicious and adorable, this is one cookie dough flurry you’ll love!

Treat Your Mom To Something Sweet

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and while celebrating your mom might look different than you expected, you can still show your mom or mother-figure in your life how much you appreciate them.

 

We’ve put together a menu of delicious treats with mom in mind that are perfect for celebrating mom with those you live with or to drop on the doorstep of your mom as a special treat to let her know you’re thinking of her and can’t wait to celebrate when you can be together again.

 

For Celebrating At Home

 

Mother’s Day Cake

Our Mother’s Day Cake features a soft pink buttercream and is decorated with a stunning floral buttercream wreath. The final touch of an edible ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ disc makes this cake the perfect dessert for a Mother’s Day brunch at home with those you love.

 

Mother’s Day Cupcakes

Our mouth-watering Mother’s Day cupcakes are decorated with a piped buttercream rosette, pastel macarons with a stunning gold brush and an edible greeting tag that reads ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ in a pretty shade of pink! Available in a box of 6 or 12.

 

For Dropping Off

 

Macaron Gift Box

A box of our chewy, scrumptious macarons in beautiful colours are sure to make your mom feel special. Our 6-macaron gift boxes come in our signature gold foil design. Our 12-macaron gift boxes feature a delicate floral design in elegant gold foil. Each box is filled with an assortment of signature flavours.

Covid-19 Cake Orders

Celebrations look different these days. With our inability to gather in groups and with the continued encouragement to stay home, celebrating a birthday, anniversary or other special occasions at home can feel like it lacks the lustre of a bigger party, an outing or inviting friends over. While you may be celebrating at home with those you live with, we believe these occasions are still worthy of a sweet treat to celebrate– even if it’s a small celebration at home while calling friends and loved ones over FaceTime, Skype, Zoom or HouseParty to celebrate virtually. 

In light of the number of requests we’ve received to offer cakes at this time so people can celebrate at home with the ones they live with, we’ve decided to open up our cake department again offering a simplified menu of cakes for your celebrations. Please take a look below at the flavours and design options. If you’d like to place an order, please note that we are only accepting a very limited number of cakes each week so we recommend placing your order as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Cakes will be able to be picked up on Thursday, Friday and Saturday only at our shop on Academy from noon until 5 pm.

For more information or to place your order please email [email protected] and our customer service team will get back to you as soon as they are able. For more information on the flavours of cakes being offered, visit the Covid Cakes page of our website

How We Are Keeping Busy Indoors

As we all spend more time indoors, we are looking for fun and creative ways to keep ourselves, and even our little ones, engaged and having fun. Group activities, dinner parties and other gatherings may be cancelled but we are finding ways to keep ourselves and our families entertained and having fun. Here’s what you can find team JRC doing while we have fun social distancing.

 

Baking

“We made banana bread, and spend a lot of our time cooking, trying to work from home with 2 kids, and playing “balloon”, where Leo and I/Trev keep a balloon in the air as long as we can. So far our top score is 78 hits! I’m also making a scavenger hunt for Leo to find a Hot Chocolate Bomb” – Ashley

 

Picture below is our Jenna Rae Cakes Banana Bread Party Square recipe. We can’t share it quite yet due to something really exciting coming later this year! We’ll let your imagination fill in the blank!

Learning a New Language

“I am going to start quilting a baby blanket for my friend who just had a baby. I’ve had the fabric before he was born but never had the time to make it, so I guess it’s the time! I started a free language course on coursera.org to learn a new language. I use the app Houseparty to video chat with my friends and play quick games together. Doing free Zumba classes on Instagram LIVE with my favourite instructors. Baking whatever I’m craving and giving it to my family and leaving the rest at my friends’ doorstep.” – Amirah

 

PVR Catch Up

“Honestly! My fav thing to do at home is watching my million pvr’d shows (always behind full seasons of shows) and let the commercials run so I can clean my house during them! It kind of makes it a fun game. We also just added a new puppy, Pepper, into the furry fam so he has been keeping us super busy in quarantine!” – Rebecca

 
Colouring Books

“I love working on colouring books. It makes me relax and become creative. My favourite is the enchanted forest by Johanna Basford.” – Beatriz

 

Napping Anytime

“Catching up on things that needed to be done, finally doing a puzzle we’ve had for years, walking our dog Molly, reading new books, and napping anytime we feel like it (nothing stopping us now!).” – Jordain

 

Cooking + Baking

“One of my favourite things to do is bake & cook always trying new recipes!” – Leah

 

“I’ve been cooking and baking a lot! Both my parents are super busy with work right now, so I’m in charge of making all the meals for our family of 6! I absolutely love to cook/bake so I was more than happy to help out! I really miss JRC so I decided to make mini egg macarons, cookie sandwiches and edible cotton candy cookie dough with our signature flavouring!” – Kaitlyn

Settling In

“I’ve mostly been unboxing/organizing/cleaning every room in our new house … finally lol and watching A LOT of movies!” – Taylor

 

Picking Up Old Hobbies

“I’ve been practicing piano, ukulele and singing a lot! It’s nice to revisit hobbies you don’t get to do so often. Plus, you feel so accomplished when you nail a song!” – Noah

 

Organizing + Crafting

“I’ve been passing the time going through boxes of art supplies that I’ve had in storage. I’ve moved 8 times since my School of art days, so I can finally take the time to unpack my hoarded projects and finish some. Starting with a bookbinding technique that I wanted to try out!” – Jana

Team JRC is doing our part to flatten the curve by staying home and finding fun ways to pass the time and we hope you are, too! We are all in this together.

COVID-19 UPDATES

Our hearts go out to the families, individuals, communities and small businesses affected by COVID-19. This post will be updated as the situation unfolds and we hope to keep you as up-to-date with information as possible as it concerns you, our valued customer.

June 16, 2020 Update:

We are so excited to welcome you back to our locations at 580e Academy Road + The Forks starting on Tuesday, June 16th! Click HERE to learn more about what visiting Jenna Rae Cakes will be like now including hours of operation, health and safety procedures, etc. 

 

Previous Updates:

Macaron Shipping

Due to increased demands for shipping, UPS is no longer able to meet the standards required for the delivery of our macarons across Canada. Their inability to perform to the expected standards hurts small businesses like ours as a time like this when items that are usually handled with care are no longer cared for in the delivery process. To prevent more customers from delayed deliveries and macarons being damaged when being delivered, we have decided to temporarily close the shipping of our macarons across Canada. As soon as we are able we will reopen this service and provide macarons to our valued customers across Canada.

 

Health and Safety Standards

At Jenna Rae Cakes, health and safety are our top priorities. As a business in the food industry, the standards of cleanliness and sanitation are high and thorough. All of our bakers have their Food Handlers certificates and we take every precaution in our kitchen to adhere to all of the rules and regulations outlined by Manitoba Health. Our commercial kitchen is not open to the general public and all of our staff are being encouraged to follow all COVID-19 advice for the public as outlined by the WHO. Our storefront employees will continue to clean and sanitize with extra diligence and our management team will continue to monitor the situation with extreme attentiveness.

 

SkipTheDishes

Jenna Rae Cakes is now on SkipTheDishes for pick-up and delivery! Our menu launches on the SkipTheDishes app at 9am Tuesday-Saturday, and delivery pick-up times include 12-5pm. Place your order early in the day to have the best flavour selection. You can view our daily flavour menu here.

 

Academy Road Location

Jenna Rae Cakes on Academy Road will be temporarily closed to the general public after Saturday, March 21st at 6pm. To learn more, click here

 

The Forks Location

Our location at The Forks is now closed until further notice.

 

Cancellation Policy

We fully understand that events are being cancelled. With that, cakes and large orders may need to be cancelled as well. Please email us at [email protected] with any questions or concerns about upcoming orders.  

⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. Please email [email protected] As a small business, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support in this trying time.

 

 
We’re all in this together, and remember: above all else, be kind

Charity Of The Month

Caring for our local community is something we value at Jenna Rae Cakes. Being able to contribute to various charities allows us the opportunity to serve our community and we couldn’t be more excited and grateful to give back to the community that has given us so much support.

For January, our Charity of the Month is Main Street Project.

 

Main Street Project provides a safe place of respite, shelter and support, with dignity and without judgment to individuals in our community experiencing homelessness and addiction. They advocate for a more inclusive society and assist marginalized individuals in making real choices in their lives. Their vision is that every individual has a safe place to be and the right to self-determination.

 

Main Street Project helps hold communities by supporting people living with addictions, chronic and acute illness, housing and mental health issues – their guiding principles. By addressing these principles in each individual journey, Main Street Project contributes to the overall quality of life of our community members.

 

Throughout the month of January, $0.50 from the purchase of each Vanilla Bean Cupcake will be donated to Main Street Project. Purchase your Vanilla Bean cupcake at either of our locations and know that you are supporting a wonderful charity making a difference right here in Winnipeg.
