Holy Cacao Celebrates First Anniversary with FREE Cake Balls

AUSTIN, TX – 3/21/10 – HOLY CACAO has created a Birthday Ball to give away for customers on Sunday, March 21st, 2010 (limit one per person, no purchase required).

The dessert shop, which specializes in several sweet treats, such as Cake Shakes, Frozen Hot Chocolate, S’mores (with marshmallows made from scratch) and a Hot Chocolate that is akin to a European Drinking Chocolate, has become well recognized for its Cake Balls.

A Cake Ball, like a chocolate truffle, is a handmade labor of love. First a cake is baked from scratch. After it cools, it is crumbled and mixed with frosting to bind it together and give it a truffle-like consistency. Finally, it is coated with chocolate. At HOLY CACAO, it is even placed on a Popsicle Stick to make it a bit more fun (and easy to eat).

The Birthday Ball is a traditional yellow cake, mixed with a butter cream frosting. It will be coated in dark chocolate and topped with festive sprinkles. No purchase is necessary on Sunday, March 21st, though the FREE Cake Ball will be limited to one per customer.

HOLY CACAO will also have additional Birthday Balls available for sale. They will sell for $2 each, 3 for $5.00 or a Baker’s Dozen for $20.00, as are HOLY CACAO’s regular six flavors. Check out the full menu and find out more at

Additionally, HOLY CACAO will be shooting an episode for the Food Network on Sunday, March 28th. Though the air date has yet to be announced, HOLY CACAO is excited that such attention continues to be placed on the Austin food scene and the timing of this shooting along with the One Year Anniversary provides a noteworthy coincidence.

HOLY CACAO will close early Monday, March 22nd to celebrate the anniversary and plan for the upcoming year with its entire kitchen and retail team. Sunday, March 21st HOLY CACAO will be open from 12-8. Monday, March 22nd, the hours will be 12-5.
