I was disappointed on my visit to Pinky's. The entry way was overly perfumed with air freshener of some sort..then inside the bakery it smelled heavily of cigarette smoke, NOT the bakery smell I hoped for. The cupcakes are kind of dry and not exciting for $2.25 each. Will not be going back.

It's very unfortunate that your 1st experience at Pinky's did not go well. I have been several times, but do not recall smelling anything out of the ordinary, and certainly not cigarette smoke. I have tried almost all of the flavors that they carry, and other than the chocolate and/or choco mousse versions, I found the rest very tasty, with just the right amount of sweetness. I should say, though, that chocolate is not my 1st pick in any sweet treat, so that could explain why I didn't enjoy those particular ones. But, to each his own, and I'm sure there are other places around that might make cupcakes that suit your tastes better! Good luck in your search!

I have read all the comments, and I might have to say that some people for whatever reason would want to post things that obviously are not true. We smelt no scent of ciggaretes and the cupcakes were great and place is very cute. They may not have very many varieties but you have to start out small

I went in the afternoon, which I didn't think to go sooner in the day for fresher, but I too smelt cigarette smoke. Maybe it's just the one clerk that smokes.

I love the cupcakes here. The smell in the foyer is from an industrial strength airfreshner that was installed by the owners of the shopping center. It stinks really bad! I hate those things. We go to get cupcakes here every week and have our favorites and some we don't care for. Love the place!

I live in Fort Worth and making a stop at Pinky's is always a priority when in Burleson. I've been in many times and the smell of cigarette smoke was never present. However, there is a hair salon that the bakery shares an entrance with; and sometimes you can smell the chemicals that they use on hair as you come into the shared entrance. As soon as walk through the door of the bakery, it smells amazing. The cupcakes are a bit dry, but that is how I prefer them. Many others prefer them this way as well, because Pinky's sells out just about every day!

I agree it smells like an old cigarette smoke soaked in the walls. The cupcakes are very dry including the icing. I have gone several times and tried different flavors. I will not go back!

They have new owners and a baker. Their cupcakes are made daily, and you can tell. I have never been disappointed with the selection or the greeting I have recieved when I visit. I would recommend an other visit for all the ones that were disappointed. Give them a second chance they have improved.
