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.

Laura catered our daughter's wedding, providing the dinner, the cake, and appetizers. Everything was delicious and interesting and very attractive. Her appetizers and cakes were especially amazing. Laura was very easy to work with, competitively priced, professional and helpful, and her staff was great. When our day-of coordinator got pressed for time on set-up, Laura had her staff jump in and save the day. She did everything possible to make the dinner and reception go smoothly and to keep us all happy and un-frazzled. I will be calling her again the next time our family needs a caterer; I highly recommend Bittersweet Cakes and Catering.

If you are looking for a wonderful caterer, look no further! Laura pre-arranged a meeting place for a taste testing before booking and went over all of my menu options with me. She was even willing to plan the menu around the fact that my venue did not have an area for cooking. She was responsive to my budget, all of my needs, concerns, and any questions that I had. On the day of the wedding, Laura and her team operated so smoothly - I didn't have to worry about a thing! Food (and even cake after the cutting) was set aside for my husband and I and was waiting for us at our table. The wedding cake was beautiful and though my husband had an odd grooms cake request, it came out perfectly and was a huge hit. Everyone raved about how wonderful the all food was at the wedding! (My new mother-in-law said it was the best wedding food she had ever eaten)

After researching and getting quotes for a slew of caterers for our wedding, we finally went with Bittersweet Cakes & Catering. The other caterers we contacted would give us crazy priced quotes (some caterer wanted a 15% admin fee, I have never seen this before), in the hopes that our parents would just sign on the dotted line. Dealing with Bittersweet Cakes & Catering was completely different, we got a reasonable quote that was based on our food desires and the amount of guests. After receiving their quote we meet the chef for a tasting, the food was delicious, and the cake samples were great too. It was nice to know that we had our food taken care off, and the cake through one vendor. During the wedding the food was fantastic, everyone really enjoy the meals, with plenty of people going for seconds. The best appetizer was the chorizo stuffed mushrooms, which I ate quite a few of. One of the best things was the caterer and her team actually delivered a tray of appetizers, and got our plates of food for us at our table during the wedding. We always heard stories from our friends that they didn't eat during their weddings, but with the professionalism of this caterer, she made sure we were not going to go hungry. The food was awesome, the catering team was professional, and it was nice not having to worry about having great food at our wedding.

Laura was very helpful in making plans for a small wedding. She referred us to other vendors for the things she could not handle (flowers, linens). She asked for a budget, we gave her one, and she stuck to it. The food was great, the cake was yummy, and the bride was very happy! What else matters?

Laura, owner of Bittersweet Cakes and Catering, provided catering services for our wedding in July. We found Laura to be fabulous! She was professional with a friendly touch. She made recommendations that would suit a summer wedding. We felt at ease with all correspondence with her. When we had any questions, they were answered quickly and with great knowledge of what would go well with our reception menu. Her daughter, Jamie, did a wonderful job organizing the reception dinner. Jamie was also very polite to our guests by explaining dishes and greeting them with smiles. It has been a couple of months since our wedding and guests continue to rave about how good the food was. Laura also provided the cakes for our wedding. We loved our cakes! The personalized cake decorations were awesome and the flavors were delicious!

Catering was the one thing that was giving me a headache for the wedding. Bittersweet made my experience SO EASY! They were always positive, great communication, and found a way to make EXACTLY what I was looking for at the price point that we could afford! She was WONDERFUL to work with. She put together a meal for us to try and had it ready in 4 days! we didn't have to schedule weeks ahead of time just to meet with her. She took time when we were available and were willing to meet us anywhere! When we told her our interests- she made a PERSONALIZED meal plan that fits our idea which was very different than the norm. She made sure all our favorite foods were a part of it even through they were not on the normal list. we could switch out any part and she would work with us to make that happen.
On wedding day she had our food prepared to our table and ready to go right when we sat down. She has a personalized plate of aps for us to have during pictures and checked on us throughout to make sure we didn't have to lift a finger! Everyone RAVED about our desert table. They kept wondering when MORE was coming out! She was a BLESSING in our wedding. They did an AMAZING job and I could not recommend anyone more!

We wanted our only daughter's wedding reception to be perfect, and it was. We give much of the credit to Laura. Working with her was a dream and our guests continue to tell us that the food at the reception was the best they'd even had at a wedding. The cost was reasonable and Laura's staff professional, efficient, and gracious. My husband's comment is simply, "Excellent," a word he does not use lightly.

Bittersweet Catering did a wonderful job at my daughter's wedding. The food was all delicious, from the appetizers to the cakes and everything in between. Laura and her team were very professional and efficient. Appetizers were all beautifully presented. Antipasto skewer, bruschetta, pesto cream cheese crositni and garlic shrimp! A great variety. The buffet had choices of meats and sides were all good especially the gourmet mac and cheese. The servers were very good and stayed on top of things. I highly recommend Bittersweet.

Laura with Bittersweet Cakes & Catering truly took our wedding to another level. Her personal service and professionalism really made an impression. Not only did she travel to meet me and my entire family close to my home, she also met a second time with me and my husband (then fiancé) for a special cake tasting. It is hard to decide which part of our meal was more impressive. The three tier wedding cake was mouth watering with three tiers of different cake flavors. I wish I had stashed the groom's cake away to keep for myself! And the food was to die for. Lets start with the appetizers. The antipasto skewer was my favorite and Justin and I couldn't stop eating them even two days into our honeymoon. Another appetizer, garlic shrimp with garlic-chili aoli sauce, was also amazing. Our guests ate every bite. And now the main course. There were two entrees to choose from, pork loin and beef cabrales. Incredible. Even the sides were outstanding. Literally, one of our guests wrote in our guestbook, "thanks for the mac n cheese". Not to mention Laura's pricing is mind-blowing and includes a drink station (water, iced tea and lemonade), 5 servers, cutlery, china, cakes, appetizers, and the main course. You cannot overstate the value she brought to our wedding. From the bottom of our hearts we say "Thank You Laura!"
