‘Tis the season for gingerbread houses!

December 17, 2015

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Since Houston rarely provides any snow for the holidays, we have to find other ways to celebrate the joyous winter season. One of our favorite things to do around this time of year is build gingerbread houses. It unleashes our creativity – and the snow made of our icing is definitely much sweeter than what falls from the clouds! In the giving […]

Three Brothers Bakery’s impact on my life

June 15, 2015

Hello again, Now that you know a little bit about me and how I got here, I wanted to talk about some of the wonderful things that make Three Brothers Bakery so unique. This job has really impacted my life; I never thought I would grow so much as a person by working here. When I applied to work here about four years ago I had NO IDEA the amount […]

Mother’s Day Memories and Adventures

May 6, 2015

We may be called Three Brothers Bakery, but we could not have made it without the love and support of mothers. Of course, we have so many memories with our moms, like the time Bobby’s mom had to deal with him after he ordered two chinchillas from a television ad – he was only eight at the time – and when Janice stayed out until 3 a.m. when she was […]

No, thank you Camp Smiles!

December 19, 2014

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 […]

Hoppy Easter!

April 9, 2014

These bunny treats are so cute and simple to make at home! Start with a cooled cookie and, using a wide tip piping bag, cover the cookie in a thick layer of icing. Here in the bakery, we use white icing then dip it into green sprinkles, but you can use green icing at home to make it easier! Next, using the same wide tip icing bag, pipe a large […]

Candy Cane History 101

December 11, 2013

The Birth of the “Candy Cane” In 1672, a genius German candy maker in Cologne, Germany thought of a sweet idea to silence naughty & noisy children during mass on Christmas Eve.  He created these white sugar sticks with the signature bent shape. The sweet recipe then made its way to America around 1847. Then came the stripes…. About 50 years later, red stripes showed up on candy canes everywhere—no […]

Happy Thanksgivukkah!

November 21, 2013

One of the few things that makes us happier than our sweet treats, is Hannukah. (Also known as Hanukkah, Channukah, or its 15 other spelling variations) Of course, the fact that we have an excuse to nibble on our favorite fried tasty treats doesn’t hurt either. And this year’s Hannukah is extra special because it lands exactly on Thanksgiving; well technically it’s Erev Thanksgiving.  This is something so rare that […]
