Today we’re bringing you our recap of the best Austin catering and cake trends of 2015! As we wrap up a year of sharing the most incredible Austin weddings and the talented vendors that brought them to life, we couldn’t help but reflect on some of our favorite catering and cake details found within the pages of the inaugural issue of Brides of Austin. This year has been full of delicious treats and mouth watering bites! Take a look at these trending concepts, and stay tuned the rest of the week to see what other trends we hope stick around for 2016!

Fruity Cocktails

Impress your guests by enhancing your favorite cocktails with a fruity garnish – it is both refreshing and beautiful!

Metallic Accented Cakes

Metallic wedding cakes have been a huge hit over the last year, and we expect this shimmering trend to hang on for 2016! Have fun mixing metals, use them as soft accents, or soften them with florals.
