Bittersweet creates customized Menus & Wedding Cakes for all of our Brides. From the Hors D'oeuvres through the Bridal Cake(s). We do it all. My experienced staff & I will be there the day of the occasion to make sure everything is perfect throughout the entire event.
Over the past 16 years I have catered events ranging in size from 6 to 400 people. We also offer cooking classes throughout the Hill Country. No event is too large or too small. I enjoy working with everyone, and all receive my personal attention and care.

Watching people discover the world through food has been very exciting. My clients continually challenge me to develop new dishes for their unique events, which has given me alot of joy over the years. I look forward to meeting you helping you plan an event that you will remember for a lifetime.

I hired Bittersweet Catering for my son's wedding. They did the reception and the cake. The pre-planning was easy and Laura was eager to accommodate special requests of the happy couple.

On the day of the wedding, they were on time, efficient, and left the area very clean.

That's great, but what deserves special praise was the food! The appetizers were devoured by our guests and the main courses were raved over. I've had at least five people contact me since the reception to comment on how good the cake was! All told, we could not have been happier! Thank you, Laura!!

Our wedding was this past weekend in Driftwood, and Laura with Bittersweet provided the dinner, cake/desserts, and bartenders. It was so nice to be able to have so many services combined into one vendor! The food was incredible. So many guests were coming up to us telling us how great it was (even my Godfather who is a professional chef and restaurant owner)! The cake was amazing as well as the other desserts Laura and her team made, including mini pumpkin and pecan pies, tiramisu cups, and cupcakes. The appetizers were great too and Laura's staff passed those around at our cocktail hour. Everything was truly phenomenal and at a reasonable price. Do yourself a favor and book Bittersweet Cakes and Catering!

Laura Eliel was very easy to work with when I was looking for an in-home dinner party experience. I wanted someone who would come to my house, prepare and serve a special dinner for our small party. There were six of us. She and her assistant, Colleen, were so pleasant and professional and took great care of us. And, the food was excellent. Everything was special and delicious. I could not have done what she did by myself. I recommend her highly.

Laura Eliel brought a great deal of professionalism and class to my event. My (now husband) and I wanted food catered that all of our guests would enjoy, and not leave hungry. That's exactly what Laura brought. From the delicate hors d'oeuvres, to the very delicious cake and dessert bar, all of our guests were fully satisfied. We chose a buffet because it was more for our budget, but the setup was still very classy and elegant. Laura is also a great communicator, anytime I would contact her with a random question she was happy to help. I wanted a lot of variety, because all of our guests have different tastes, and Laura was so helpful in accommodating us. I definitely would recommend her to a friend or family for any future events.

We give Laura our strongest recommendation. We engaged her to cater our wedding, at a unique outdoor / indoor venue for around 100 people. It was among the best decisions we made.

Laura was highly responsive in all communications. She helped us work thru several iterations of proposals until we we found something that worked for us. We had a number unique needs that seemed challenging to us, but which Laura easily handled. We did not have to put much time into managing the catering after we engaged Laura. Once she understood what we needed to get done, she handled a ton of the small details for us.

Bottom line: The appetizers, meals, and baking she prepared were graciously served, were interesting both visually and to the palette, and delicious! Finally, she is competitively priced. Considering the quality of her food and services, total value she delivers is unmatched in our experience.

I can't say enough on how Laura and her team at Bittersweet made our special day one to remember and cherish. From beginning to end Laura was always available and responsive to our needs and desires. The food was incredible with its taste of home and loved touch. People are still talking about it weeks later. "Great Food!!!" No, corporate catering here. The cake was the best as well, white chocolate raspberry was a hit for all. Her team on site was on point the entire time! I highly recommend Bittersweet Cakes & Catering to anyone who wants a piece of personalization to their event!!!

Laura with Bittersweet Cakes & Catering is awesome!! She was extremely helpful with planning our menu & meeting our budget. She was able to work in everything we wanted for a set price. The quality of food & service they provided during our reception dinner was exceptional. The whipped potato bar was not extremely hot, but it was VERY tasty.

Oh, and if you haven't tried her Smoked BBQ Pulled Pork ... you are missing out. It's incredible.

The catering was PHENOMENAL!!! From the start, Laura impressed us. We weren't from the area so it was important the caterer be available via email and she was super professional. Above and beyond that - of course - was the importance of the food quality/taste. When we did the tasting, she said she could make anything we wanted, but we were sold immediately on her breaded chicken breasts with pesto. It was a super creative way to do chicken that went far, far past standard catering fare. It was amazing. I wish I could order it at a restaurant on a regular basis. Maybe I'll ask for the recipe. Anyway, we also had BBQ pulled pork which was so delicious - everybody wanted to try both! We also got to do the trendy "XYZ bar" setup with mashed potatoes with all the "fixings," with the fixings included more gourmet things like sauteed mushrooms. Even the salad exceeded expectations. I can't say enough good things about the food!!!!!!! We even had guests call our parents later in the week to say that the wedding food was better than one of the semi-famous restaurants in the area. It was so good - super grateful my parents ordered enough for us to have leftovers :)

After the fact, I have no idea how we got that great of food for the value. It was just too good. Oh! And she made sure my now-husband and I got to eat, and to try everything, so we did not have the stereotypical "you don't get to eat at your own wedding" story. They also did the cake cutting which went great and was a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend working with Laura for your wedding catering!!!!

Laura from Bittersweet Cakes & Catering did a great job for our wedding! And not just the wedding, Bittersweet Catering was great from the tasting ‘til after the reception. Two things that came across working with Laura is that she can cook, and she knows the catering business, especially for weddings! Between these two things we got amazing meal and cake that all the guests (and us) loved along with service that helped the reception go smoothly. Throughout the process, Laura was eager to help with good suggestions so that we could focus on our big day. From a friend’s wedding, anniversary celebration, or any other big party, I’d gladly have Bittersweet Cakes and Catering cater again!
