The team at Three Loaves Bakehouse are always on the go, with new fresh treats for any time of year. This edition, Andrew Frazer, owner and head baker passes on a few ideas for bright and tasty Christmas goodies to feed the masses.

With the festive season fast approaching, we are again developing and perfecting products for all of your upcoming events. We know it is a busy time of year for schools and businesses with so many functions, festivities and social events on the calendar.

At Three Loaves Bakehouse, we like to provide annual favourites such as delectable rum and apricot balls or Christmas puddings made from fruits soaked in quality rum for months in advance (our delicious puddings are available in small and large, traditional and even gluten free).

We also like to make specialty products featured only during the Christmas festive season.


With our North Queensland climate and preference for outdoor entertaining, we hope to provide an assortment of options for every event.

Our cronuts continue to be a hit so we will be working on some festive inspired additions to this range. Cakes and tarts are also popular at this time of year as it warms up, and customers look for fresh products to tantalise the tastebuds.

As the school term wraps up, some very lucky teachers are often gifted an assortment of TLB goodies to bring in the school holidays. Our gingerbread is always a hit with the teachers and colleagues alike.

We know that Christmas parties start in November and early December, so we also like to ensure we commence the introduction of our Christmas lines around this time. We will always update our social media with new photos and concepts as they arise so be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook.

New Year is always a busy time for bread with a lot of people planning dinner parties and barbeques. The burger bun has been a hit this year with many people trying their hands at creating the perfect burger. As always, we have an assortment of breads and buns to suit any style of entertaining. Our shop staff are more than happy to discuss with you your hopes for your menu and see if we can assist in the selection process.

We love this time of year! It has been a busy year for us with a lot of change and growth. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers both in the shop and in wholesale for your ongoing support.

Bring on the festive cheer and hopefully a beer (or two)!
