When you are in our line of business, there are few things that say “YOU DID IT!” such as waking up in the morning and knowing that your bakery will have some very important visitors that day…
…that is, if those visitors are from Food Network itself!
Three Brothers Bakery was honored and excited to play host to Tom Pizzica of the hit television show Outrageous Food and his amazing crew. And of course, we had tons to show him!
We started off by showing him our pumpecapple piecake. Our pumpecapple piecake is our signature cake that stands 11 inches tall and weights 23.5 pounds, combining layers upon layers of pumpkin pie baked in pumpkin spice cake, pecan pie baked inside a chocolate cake and apple pie baked in its own spice cake.
And of course, we couldn’t send our Food Network friends home without pulling out all the stops and showcasing some of our more “extreme” creations. After all, the show IS called Outrageous Food, right? 🙂 With a crowd of friends and Three Brothers Bakery patrons, we lit up the night sky with our Firebreathing Serpent and Oil Derrick Blowout Cakes!
Don’t forget to catch us on Friday, April 8 at 10:00 PM ET/PT (that’s 9:00 PM CST for all of our Houston friends!) on Food Network’s “Outrageous Food.” Thank you again to Tom Pizzica and the staff and crew of Food Network’s Outrageous Food for the opportunity to be on the show!

In Outrageous Food, “Big Chef” Tom Pizzica, season six finalist from The Next Food Network Star, is on a quest to unearth the most jaw-dropping, eye-popping, occasionally heart-stopping foods in the country – dishes that give “outrageous” a whole new meaning. From the oversized (60-inch pizzas carried by crane to the table) and absurdly spicy (“Ninja” sushi rolls made with fresh habaneros, cayenne peppers and wasabi oil) to the ridiculously pricey (the $175 burger made with Kobe beef, black truffles and foie gras) and the blatantly bizarre (corn-on-the-cob flavored ice cream), Tom learns the secrets of these out-of-this-world eats from the chefs at all the locales. Years of experience working in kitchens coupled with his every-guy likeability, sharp wit, and appetite for bold food, Tom Pizzica takes Outrageous Food to new heights.
