Smucker Foods of Canada gets into the spirit of the season with the launch of its new Smucker’s Sundae Syrup Strawberry Syrup just in time for Canada Day.

In honour of the Canadian launch, the Company enlisted the help of Baking Specialist Sarah Palter to create a patriotic dessert. The result: a festive red and white Canada Day Ice Cream Cake that’s fun for the kids to make and a delicious way to celebrate any special occasion.
