We love new creations here at Three Brothers Bakery. From our famous Pumpecapple Piecake to our award-winning Deep Dish Chocolate Fudge Pecan Pie, we are all about creating confections. This year we wanted to do something festive for Mardi Gras, so we came up with the delicious Cheesecake King Cake.

Congratulations, Jasmine!

If you’ve come to Three Brothers Bakery in the past couple of years for a wedding cake, chances are you’ve met with our amazing Wedding Cake Consultant, Jasmine. She has worked with us for two years and helps us create some truly incredible wedding cakes, all while keeping everyone involved happy.

Last November, our wedding consultant had a wedding of her own! She married her now husband, Chris, in a shabby-chic style wedding in Pasadena, Texas.

When it came to the cake, well, Jasmine knew where to go. She designed her own wedding cake, which of course, came from Three Brothers Bakery. The beautiful cake was white cake with the upper half lemon cream and the bottom half strawberry cream. Yum!

New year, new memories

2015 is finally here and we know many of you have taken up New Years Resolutions (and some of you may have already given them up) to start the new year on a sweet note. We too have some resolutions about how to make the most out of this year. We’re resolving to spread more cheer and happiness to everyone who walks in our doors.

 

1

We also have some suggestions on how to make the most out of your New Year’s resolutions.

Staying Sugar Free

The most popular resolution, by far, is to lose weight. Most people do this by dieting and that means giving up sweets. Well, that’s something we just can’t agree with. But, we do offer a number of sugar-free options for those of you watching those waistlines. Whether it’s a sugar-free Chocolate Pecan Drop or a Chocolate Drop cookie, these little slices of heaven will satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising your resolutions.

The Most Important Meal of the Day

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and yet many times we over look it. This year, resolve to not skip breakfast. We can help you with our delicious assortments of Danish, pastries and bagels. Not to mention, we you can get your coffee fix at the same time at all three of our bakery locations.

More Family Time

As a family owned business for more than 65 years, we know all about the importance of family time. We would not be here without our supportive family and we have plenty of family stories to share. Our Washington Avenue and Memorial locations are a perfect place to bring the family and enjoy some delicious goodies.

Thank you for a wonderful year!

2014 was an amazing year for us. We opened our Washington Avenue location, celebrated our 65th anniversary, the Pumpecapple Piecake received national attention and it was another year serving our wonderful friends, family and customers in Houston and across the nation.

No, thank you Camp Smiles!

We work with some of the sweetest folks in Houston and sometimes they are just so kind we need to share our stories with you all. We recently donated a cake to the wonderful organization, Camp Smiles, a week-long overnight camp for children ages 6-14 with cerebral palsy. These adorable kids sent us thank you cards that are too precious to not share!

As we all look forward to a new year and all the blessing of 2014, we are so thankful for the little things that make us smile. Camp Smiles is definitely one the of things we are grateful for this year.

Award-Winning Gingerbread Houses

We love gingerbread here at Three Brothers Bakery! From our giant gingerbread man we created for our 65th anniversary, to some of our more recent Halloween gingerbread creations, this flavorful cookie is one of our favorites. We’ve created some amazing (and delicious) gingerbread houses for the holiday season and we wanted to share them with you. Here are a few of our favorite cookie mansions:

Aren’t those just so beautiful? They almost look too good to eat! We have some amazing decorators at the Bakery. They compete in competitions all over the country with their fantastic creations. Three Brothers Bakery decorator, Heather, recently won a decorating contest with the gingerbread house below. IMG_5681 IMG_5682

How amazing is that creation? We are so proud of our decorators and all they’ve accomplished. You can read more about our award-winning decorators in this blog post.

Pumpecapple Piecake Craze

We’ve been baking the giant Pumpecapple Piecake for many years, but recently the 24-pound, 11-inch tall confection has been making national news. No doubt, if you like Three Brothers Bakery on Facebook you have seen some of the wonderful coverage the piecake has received, but here are some of the highlights from the past month!

Screen Shot 2014-11-26 at 8.25.11 AM

ABC 13

This little story is what sparked much of the coverage this month. The wonderful Patricia Lopez chatted with Bobby about how the Pumpecapple is made. We start with our apple pie baked into a spice cake, our award-winning pecan pie baked in a chocolate cake and a pumpkin pie baked in another spice cake, then layer and cover in icing, caramel and nuts. Watch the full video here: ABC13.

Saturday Night Live

The folks at Saturday Night Live sure have a way of making us laugh and we were so excited to see our Pumpecapple Piecake on the show! The Weekend Update crew poked fun at the piecake calling it a “diet cake.” With 2,000 calories a slice, we can tell you, that diet won’t work!

 

CNN Headline News

The Pumpecapple Piecake then went on to be featured on Headline News Express. The lovely Lynn Berry had a slice and could not believe how delicious the monstrous creation was. Watch the entire video here: HLN.

Good Morning America

This one is the biggie. We had our giant Pumpecapple Piecake featured on Good Morning America! Robin Roberts, George Stephanopoulos, Lara Spencer and Amy Robach all got to try our delicious confection and they loved it.

 

Thank you so much to everyone who ordered a Pumpecapple Piecake for the Thanksgiving holiday. If you didn’t get a chance to place your order, you can still get one for the December holidays! We promise your family and friends will love it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Staff Picks

Our three locations are full of delicious treats, savory breads and award-winning pies, but you’ll also find some of the sweetest employees in Houston at Three Brothers Bakery! We love sharing memories and treats with our customers, families and friends and our crew makes it possible, from our cake decorators to our front of house staff. We asked a few members of the Three Brothers Bakery family what their favorite treats are and here are their answers!

1

Heather, who creates many of our amazing custom cakes, like this one she entered in the “That Takes the Cake” competition in Austin, said her favorite thing at the Bakery is our White Chocolate Macadamia cookie. But she also says you can’t go wrong with any of the cookies we bake up on a daily basis!

2

Amanda, who has worked at our S. Braeswood location for a little more than a year, said her absolute favorite treat would have to be the Caramel Macchiato cupcake. We don’t always have them in stock, but when we do, Amanda thinks nothing is better. If they aren’t in store, you should try one of our other delicious cupcakes, like this mocha cupcake.

3

 

Finally, Jason, who has been a part of our Three Brothers Bakery family for four years now, said he couldn’t choose just one. His favorites are the Pumpkin pie and the Three Brothers Bakery staple you know and love, gingerbread men.

A Little Slice of Home

While most of us are celebrating with friends and family this Thanksgiving, there are many more that are going without a holiday meal. This holiday season, we have decided to do our part in making Thanksgiving a little sweeter. We are partnering with one of our favorite organization, Star of Hope Mission throughout the month of November to bring a little slice of home to those in need.

littlesliceofhome eblast

 

This month, when you buy a Three Brothers Bakery pie, we will donate a slice to the Star of Hope Thanksgiving dinner. The slices will be go to the Thanksgiving dinner Star of Hope, which provides about 350 people with a warm holiday meal. Not only do you get a delicious pie, but you will be helping someone else get one too!

Whether your favorite pie is Cherry, Chocolate Fudge Pecan, Apple or our Award-Winning Pecan, when you buy a pie you will be sending a slice of comfort to someone in need.
