HOUSTON, TX – There’s something to be said for moving forward, pushing past the bad parts of life.

“My sister Trece lost a baby a few years back,” Lisa Betts explains.

And something else about families sticking together.

“My sister and I own the bakery together and her husband John, and the manager is our sister-in-law, Terri.”

It’s not the typical way a cake gallery comes together, through the loss of a child and the anguish that follows. But for sisters who insist on being there for one another, typical doesn’t take the cake.

“She’s always had that idea in the back of her head,’ sister Lisa explains. ‘And just never came forward with it.”

With the loss of her child, the dream of owning a bakery for Trece Tezeno disappeared. It was too much for sister Lisa to bear. So chew on this: with the help of her family, she lifted Trece out of the darkness that had enveloped her and began the process of opening that bakery she’d always dreamed of. This is sugar rush.

“She always had the love for it and she’s self-taught and the birth of sugar rush came along.”

In just a few years it’s become a favorite in the neighborhood, bringing the regulars back day after day.

“Because it’s good,’ says bakery regular Alexis Simmons. ‘That’s all I can say, it’s good food. It’s good cakes, it’s good pies, it’s excellent food.”

And while nothing will erase the pain of losing a child, Trece is on her feet again, moving forward and smiling, one cake at a time.
