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.

WOW! DELICIOUS! YUMMMM...

That's what I kept hearing all night at the wedding - and what I continue to hear from my guests!

Laura is outstanding at helping you to put together just the right menu - and her offerings are ALL delicious, so you can't go wrong.

She is also incredibly accommodating, and met with us for a second tasting when I decided to add more items to our tapas style dinner.

She is truly a joy to work with, and the food is delicious!

The food was fantastic; and, we were able to meet with the owner beforehand and go over our menu preferences. It was presented beautifully and tasted wonderful! In fact all night our guests were commenting on how great the meal was. I loved that she offered a customized menu which allowed us to choose a fair and delicious selection for many diets, including vegetarian, gluten free, etc. My absolute favorite were the Cajun Crab cakes with garlic Chili aioli and the Pesto Cream Cheese Crostinis!

We used Bittersweet Cakes & Catering for our wedding and we were blown away. Laura took all of my ideas and made magic happen. Her food is amazingly good. All of our guests raved about it and still are. Her cakes and cupcakes? Even better. The options that Laura offers for food and desserts were beyond what we expected. She responded to my countless emails promptly and thoroughly, was very accommodating and reasonably priced. You can't go wrong choosing Bittersweet Cakes & Catering for any event.

Across the board 5 star rating! Laura listened to what we wanted and came up with a fantastic menu that was within our budget. She offered advice on ways to avoid wasting money. She was AlLWAYS positive and energetic. She and her crew were spot ON the night of the event! The cake and petit fours were absolutely beautiful as well as being delicious. One weight conscious guest commented that she got cake with the intention of only tasting it, but it was so good that she ate every bite. She said it was totally worth the calories! Everyone loved the food. ...fabulous asparagus aioli. When word gets out about Bittersweet, I predict that it will be one of the most sought after wedding caterers in Austin. Thank you Laura!

Laura at Bittersweet Cakes is the best! She was right on with our timetable. We never had to worry about anything. The day of our wedding was hectic and she came in, set up a beautiful display and slipped out. Talk about no stress from a vendor! Many of my guests commented that it was "literally" the best cake they had ever eaten. We recommend her highly!

I hired Laura to cater my October wedding as well as provide our dessert bar and I am so happy I decided to go with her! From the very beginning, she was incredibly friendly and professional. We wanted a nice menu, but not too stuffy, and she was able to achieve that with a mix of different entrees and a carb bar (Mac n' cheese, mashed sweet potatoes and mashed potatoes). Everybody at the wedding complimented us on the food. Our dessert bar was beautiful and delicious. Plus, her pricing is extremely competitive. She showed up early on the day of, her staff was awesome, and she even helped us set up our bar. I highly recommend her. She's a great lady and a great caterer!

I cannot express just how helpful Laura and Her team were on my Wedding day. from start to Finish she was so responsive and helpful in planning my big day festivties. She was understanding when I made a decsion and then changed my mind about that descion days later. The cake by far was the most delicious cake I have ever tasted, the flavors were so rich and memorable. The food was exceptional and I could not believe all of the selections and choices that I was able to get on my tight budget. I highly recomend this vendor if you want to impress your guest but are working on a not so impressive budget.
