You might have started off with the best intentions of baking this holiday season. Perhaps gingerbread men, an apple pie, maybe even shortbread cookies were on your ‘to do’ list. But now we’re half way through the season and your bag of flour is still sitting untouched in your kitchen pantry. Let us help! We’re Three Brothers Bakery, and after 70 years of providing Houstonians with the sweetest treats, we certainly understand what it’s like when your baking intentions don’t match your reality. Sure anyone can make a box cake at home, but if you want something truly memorable with a personal touch then look no further than Three Brothers Bakery.

In First Place

Gingerbread is hands down the most popular holiday sweet we make at Three Brothers Bakery. This type of baked good is synonymous with the holiday season. Yes, anyone can make gingerbread at home, but we take it one step further to sweeter heights. From our gingerbread men called ‘Gingy’, to the little ones affectionately known as ‘Snap’, we can construct traditional gingerbread homes to Texas-sized mansions! Our Gingys can be dipped in white chocolate and decorated with buttercream they can be left naked (gasp) so you can decorate them yourselves, or we can deliver them to you in sheet-form.

Other Holiday Desserts

There are many other types of desserts in addition to our gingerbread. If you’re searching for a pie we’ve got pecan, fudge pecan, apple, cherry, and pumpkin.  If you didn’t know already, our pecan pie has won numerous accolades, starting with Country Living deeming it the “Best Mail Order Pecan Pie America Has to Offer” multiple times.

Perhaps you’re hoping to include something a little more traditional in your holiday menu? Why not try an order of the German molasses cookies Pfeffernusse, or the popular fruit bread Stollen, which will certainly please your guests.

Or are you thinking of something a little simpler such as holiday-themed sugar cookies or holiday petit fours? All of these works of edible art are created by our gifted baking artists and have never failed to delight the taste buds and senses of our customers.

Do you really want to impress the crowd? Bring our famous Pumpecapple Piecake to your next party.  Jessica description is below from the website – feel free to edit:

What holiday cake has been seen on Buzzfeed, Food Network, Saturday Night Live, Good Morning America, and stands 11 inches tall and weighs 23.5 pounds? The Pumpecapple Piecake or the Turducken of pie and cake, of course! It is 3 layers of cake that have pies baked inside of them. First, a pumpkin pie baked in a pumpkin spice cake; next our Award Winning Pecan Pie (or chocolate pecan pie) baked in chocolate cake; and last, but not least, our apple pie baked in our spice cake. Each piecake is layered with a generous filling of cream cheese icing. Finally this large confection is iced all over with cream cheese icing, garnished with pecan pieces, and topped with a generous caramel drizzle. Go ahead, we challenge you to eat the whole thing.

Ask Before you Order

Identifying what type of holiday desserts you are going to serve your family and guests is half of the question, the other part is in the details-literally. Before you call us at Three Brothers Bakery make sure you do a proper head count to know how many people you’ll be expecting. That number is critical in ensuring you’ve got enough sweets for everybody. A 9” pumpkin pie will not feed 50 people! Let us help you decide on the quantity of sweets you need. All you have to do is tell us how many people are coming.

We will also need to know if any of your guests have food sensitivities or allergies. This doesn’t mean you can’t serve your favorite Three Brothers pecan pie because your cousin has a nut allergy. Instead what you can do is provide an alternate sweet for her and any other of your guests who have allergies. Is your brother-in-law lactose intolerant? We are your bakery with so many non-dairy baked goods in our showcases. Our top selling cake is our Chocolate Ripple Fudge Cake, and it’s non-dairy!

What type of event will you be hosting and when? Is it a sit down meal where your guests will be using forks and knives? Or will they enjoy finger foods instead?  The answer to these questions will affect the type of dessert we recommend you serve. The date of the event in relation to when you place your order may also affect the type of holiday sweets you order.
