Fantastically Fruity

Our Austin bakers and caterers used delicious berries and fruits in just about every kind of dish this year, from delectable cake toppers to bite-sized desserts and even with savory appetizers. For an extra punch of sweet and acidic flavor, consider adding fruit to your cake or entrée!

Happening Hexagons

Hexagons have definitely had a moment in 2018, showing up in interiors and tiles, but also in cakes! These Austin wedding cake bakers strayed from the typical circular tiers and mixed things up with fun geometric designs.

Grab-and-Go

In 2018, convenience and approachability were key, especially when it came to desserts! Grab-and-go dessert bars for everything from macarons to donuts made their way into Austin weddings this year. Aside from practicality, the displays were visually stunning, too!
