Austin Cake Ball Happy Hour

Mmm mmm mmmmm! My boyfriend, my bestie, and I went to Austin Cake Ball yesterday for the happiest little happy hour in town.

The Stuffed Peppadews {piquanté peppers, citrus mascarpone, white balsamic honey gastrique}: Playful mix between tangy and sweet. I love the contrast between the juicy pulp and the creamy mascarpone inside.

Red Velvet Chicken Sliders {kimchi buffalo sauce, havarti, pickled vegetables, sweet roll, sesame slaw}: Red velvet mix… in chicken??? Who knew it would taste like a little drop of crunchy heaven!! This sandwich is so delicious and lovely to look at. The chicken has a perfect crunch with bit of spice and sweetness. The onions and cheese on top just take it over the top. So novel!

Slow Braised Short Rib Sliders {caramelized onions, horseradish cream, bleu cheese mashed potatoes}: Total classic. Short Ribs are one of my favorite foods, and ACB has done an excellent job nailing that “fall off the bone” texture. The blue cheese mashed potatoes are a perfect compliment to this sexy sandwich.

Sweet Cherry Almond Cake Balls {Natural cherry oil, pure almond extract, sweet cream butter, diced almonds, tart Montmorency cherries, vanilla buttercream}: One of my favorite flavors! The perfectly intense almond flavor balances out the tartness of the cherries just right. This was the featured cake ball of the day, so we decided to go with three [plus the featured flavor of the day has a discount if you sit down and eat!]. Perfect ending to happy hour :)

If you’re ever in Austin, please do yourself the favor and go visit Austin Cake Ball. You won’t be disappointed ;)
