|Austin Cake Ball|
"Hey, it's Bill's birthday."
"Aw, I hate that guy."
"There's cake in the conference room."
"...Well, I should at least say hello."
Seeing as cake often plays an important role in our social functions, it seems that it should be a memorable item. If you go to Austin Cake Ball, memorable is what you'll get. A cake ball, what on earth is that, you may ask. Well, it is precisely what it sounds like- a ball of cake that has been coated in white, dark or milk chocolate. It may help to think of them as cake truffles or perhaps as ultra small cupcakes. Austin Cake Ball makes some of the best cake I have ever had anywhere, anytime. For me, Austin Cake Ball was not a new experience as I had the chance to sample their treats at the Austin Film and Food Gala. Their cakes are all made fresh and each one has a deepness of flavor one might not expect out of cake. After all, most of us have been ruined on store bought cakes which primarily have the flavor of blandness with an overly sweet frosting. The folks over at Austin Cake Ball take real pride in what they do. Just talk to Ben, one of the owners, and you'll be immediately struck by his passion for what he does. It's a passion that has led the Whole Foods retail stores to carry their products in seventeen locations, and it's a passion that comes through in the final product.
In addition to single serving treats they also cater events and accept online orders. Your order can come in almost any configuration imaginable, whether as a self-serve type of centerpiece, single servings placed table side or as a cake ball cake. That is, cake balls that have been placed around a form into the shape of a cake. They add a very contemporary feel to any event and become quite a memorable centerpiece.
