Pinky’s, Round Two

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I tried Pinky’s, but my blog does not lie and here is the poastie. Today I stopped in and picked up two more cupcakes to try ~ the lemon lime and the salty caramel swirl.

Here’s my pic of the lemon lime…

I was a little disappointed by this cupcake ~ I remember that my first experience with Pinky’s was excellent and I was looking forward to more of the same. But while the lemon cake was moist and delicious, the blob of citrus was only mildly tangy. And sadly the frosting was meh. I couldn’t even tell it was buttercream, that’s how uncreamy it was; I thought it was whipped until I went to the website and checked. Not only that, it was very bland, hardly a hint of flavor. 😦

Moving on to the salty caramel…

OK, this cupcake was much better ~ yet still not the quality I expected. The chocolate cake was fresh and moist, but not highly flavored. The frosting though was completely wonderful. Perfection! The texture was rich and snappy; the taste was full of caramel goodness and salted just right. Yum. I could go for a frosting shot or two of that salty caramel, definitely.

HAPPY 4th of JULY, Y’ALL!
