Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 18, 2012
Three Brothers Bakery is proud to announce their successful kickoff to what will be a busy fall season. Bakery co-owner Janice Jucker has graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program, an initiative to provide small businesses with access to business education, introduction to financial capital and business supportive services. In addition to this recent honor, the local bakery has been awarded the prestigious prize of “Best Cupcake” for their Extreme Mocha Cupcake from the All Things Baking Convention on Sunday, September 9.
The All Things Baking Convention is an international platform for those in the baking industry a place to find inspiration, develop new skills and master the newest culinary trends. All of the latest retail bakery products, services and innovative techniques were featured at this three-day industry conference at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
“We are thrilled to have been selected as the best cupcake,” says Jucker. “To be chosen as an example of best cupcake, in an arena alongside the nation’s most talented bakers is a true honor and reinforces our commitment to our traditional scratch baking techniques that have been passed down and perfected for five generations.”
In the coming months, Jucker, a breast cancer survivor, will be participating in the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, and the bakery will be honoring survivors by creating an array of gingerbread cookies and treats and donating proceeds to the organization. The holiday season also marks a busy time for Three Brothers Bakery as they produce and sell their pecan pie and famous Pumpecapple piecake. The piecake stands almost a foot tall, weighs almost 24 pounds and consists of a pumpkin pie baked in a spice cake, one of their award-winning pecan pies baked in a chocolate cake and an apple pie baked in a spice cake, iced and filled with crème cheese icing drizzled with caramel and garnished with nuts.
About Three Brothers Bakery

The Three Brothers Bakery pecan pie was named “…the best mail order pecan pie America has to offer…” by Country Living magazine and most recently Bobby Jucker competed in Food Network Challenge and seen on Food Network’s Outrageous Food. Bobby was named Pastry Chef of the Year at The Houston Culinary Awards and in January the bakery was awarded The Knot Best of Weddings 2012 Pick for the 3rd year in a row.
