You lucky, lucky blog readers — you get two (TWO!) cupcakery review poasts in one week!! Take a moment to contemplate the awesomeness.
OK then. Apparently this Pinky’s has been open right here in Huntington Beach since December in the same plaza where I generally use the ATM every couple weeks, but I never noticed until the other day. Of course I had to run in and grab a couple treats first chance I got, which was today.
First, I tried the Aloha (half) — coconut/pinapple cake and frosting. Totally delicious! A perfect 10 cupcake!! The cake was moist and light and flavorful; the frosting was creamy and rich with a wonderful texture. Why can’t all cupcakes be like this? What is so difficult?!?
Next, was the Charlie Brown — peanut butter cake and chocolate/PB swirl frosting with Snickers on top. OK, a little too-too, but still totally yummy. The cake was my fave on this one (I heart PB cake when it’s done right) — moist and light again, with tons of PB flavor. The frosting was faboo, though super-rich, and I was glad I only had half of this cupcake so as not to get the barfies. I did enjoy the candy bar bite, I must say. 🙂
Cupcakes at Pinky’s are two for $5.00, which is more reasonable than any of the other cupcakeries I’ve seen. I will definitely return to try other flavors.
(I’d include Diane’s reviews of the cupcakes, but she is somehow resisting them.)
