On the back of the card...

Eleanor Beauregard Black Bear loves to bake. Oh, how she relishes going through her pantry to find new and unusual flavour profiles, tweaking and creating as she goes. Of course, there are some recipes that she'd never dream of altering: her wild-strawberry and rhubarb custard square; her buttertart; and, of course, her Scotch bannock (a must at every shore lunch!).

But, surely, one of the most requested desserts at Portage, the patisserie Eleanor co-owns with her one and only, is Albert Cake. It is very nearly as sweet as its namesake, and a-l-l-l-most as beloved. Not quite a cake, per se, but not a pie, either. It is convergence in its most delicious form. Its flaky, fluted crust cradles a moist, vanilla cake, with a layer of raspberry jam spread between and topped with the creamiest of icings. To Eleanor, this tasty-like-the-weekend dessert is the perfect tribute to Albert and their relationship: deliciously unexpected, altogether comforting, and something she hopes will just last for ever.

The details...

Note Card, A6 (4.5” x 6.25”) with envelope in protective cello.

On the reverse of each card is a whimsical tale of the animal featured. Entirely collectible, the stories intertwine, creating a much-loved community of characters.

We print on a luxurious 318 gsm, 100% cotton paper. Soft and durable, this paper showcases crisp detail and vibrant colour.

We fell in love with our beautiful goldenrod shade, 90# envelope. According to the ‘World’s Favourite Colour’ study, people associate the feeling of joy with this colour. Also, this is the very shade that enrobes our trusty #2. As all of our images are hand drawn in pencil, we thought it appropriate to give a nod of appreciation.

We donate a portion of gross sales to animal welfare.
