This book is as cute as cute gets. Lots of great ideas that I wish I had thought of. And don’t worry, if you don’t win it here, you still have a shot. Yummr is having a “Cookbook a Day in the Month of May” Giveaway. You can visit Yummr to learn more.

Another lucky winner will receive a cupcake t-shirt from me at

These are definitely a handful! That’s too cute! Thanks for giving me a chance to win! Either the shirt or cookbook would be a lot of fun and would get a lot of use! Thanks!

Anna said...

I always found the handful to fill me up just the right amount but the other smaller two are great for those little bites and snacks. However for those cold days i love a giant muffin for breakfast.

Vida said...

I am definately going for the handful! But in real life I am an F – does that mean FAIL???? Vida x

myrnie_twin said...

Hmm…bite sized, so I don’t feel bad about snacking whenever I pass through the kitchen!

May 15, 2008 05:13 AM
Susanne said...

Thanks for giving me a chance to win! Definitely the handful!

May 15, 2008 05:14 AM
Britt said...

C- “handful” the standard size usually leaves me wanting more! I love your cute blog and the awesome Ideas you share.

May 15, 2008 05:17 AM
Mel said...

Definitely bite sized. That way if the cupcake is REALLY delicious, I actually get a few bites that I savor because I know I only get a few bites, not a handful.

May 15, 2008 05:18 AM
courtney said...

I am an A cup–in just one bite you get it all!! :-)

life is a blessing said...

I like bite size, though there are definately times enough for two is needed!!!

May 15, 2008 05:24 AM
justthelittlethings said...

Itty Bitty – I love just popping them into my mouth! But then I guess I lose track of how many I ate? :) Thanks!

May 15, 2008 05:27 AM
The Millers... said...

Bite-size all the way! Love your blog…thanks for sharing!

May 15, 2008 05:28 AM
Kelli said...

bit size. I love the tshirt and I love Yummr, which I just found last week. I am having so much fun with it. Thanks, great contest

May 15, 2008 05:29 AM
sueffle said...

D enough for two (or one in my case) mmm…

May 15, 2008 05:30 AM
Jess said...

I would say “enough for two” because who doesn’t love a cupcake and to share it with someone else would be even more wonderful!!! Have fun baking!!!

May 15, 2008 05:37 AM
Nance said...

itty bitty so i can pop lots of cupcakes in my mouth without making a mess.

Erin said...

when I’m nursing, enough for 2, normally just a handful. erinwillis3 at gmail dot com

May 15, 2008 05:45 AM
Jenny said...

D, of course – it’s so large the cup can’t stand up without sagging a bit! After all, were I to pick up a bite-size pastry, I’d probably need a whole lot anyway to satisfy myself. Thanks for being so kind. :)

May 15, 2008 05:47 AM
cupcaketastic said...

Whilst I am a handful, itty bitty is the one for me.

May 15, 2008 05:49 AM
sisterart said...

wow.. love d prizes!!
ok, Cup size D for me…. ENOUGH FOR TWO!… so i could always share my cupcake ;) yumyum!

May 15, 2008 05:55 AM
Tina said...

I’d have to go with bite-sized. Any larger and it would throw off that delicate icing-to-cake ratio!

May 15, 2008 05:56 AM
Ammy Lea said...

depends on the density – if we’re going with thick, rich, chocolate brownie-like cake – itty bitty

however, prettymuch anything else, I’d hope to get a good handful

May 15, 2008 05:56 AM
Jodi said...

I love cupcakes! Enough for Two!

May 15, 2008 05:57 AM
Rachelle said...

Well for a cupcake I’ll take C!

For a blueberry muffin, I’ll take D!


May 15, 2008 05:57 AM
jlyne said...

May 15, 2008 06:00 AM
*mindi* said...

May 15, 2008 06:00 AM
Jenn said...

Itty Bitty. Just enough to satisfy with a glass of milk. Yum. Plus can’t you have more that way??

What cute giveaways.

May 15, 2008 06:00 AM
Kami said...

B – Bite Size!

P.S. You are funny!

May 15, 2008 06:05 AM
Lilcee said...

i love the enough for two size. I’ll eat half of it right away and the the other half for a snack. Which usually means 5mins later. Yum!

May 15, 2008 06:07 AM
seven said...

I’m a triple-D, but I’d go for the bite size. :)

May 15, 2008 06:16 AM
marie said...

A- itty-bitty for me.

May 15, 2008 06:19 AM
Grant & Nicole said...

i wish mine were enough for two – itty bitty….

May 15, 2008 06:23 AM
fractalerrors said...

Standard cupcake cupcakes are the best.
There’s nothing better than the original!

May 15, 2008 06:29 AM
tiffalicious said...

mmm I love bite sized! I love anything mini and eating small bits at a time. :)

May 15, 2008 06:35 AM
Jacelyn said...

Definately bite-sized… since they leaves room for more? *wink*

Really hope I could win the book.

Thank you for sharing your talent! Truly inspirational!

May 15, 2008 06:44 AM
Lisa said...

No doubt an “A”! Not only does it fit me, but you can always have more, right! thanks for the chance at winning some fab fun prizes.

May 15, 2008 06:46 AM
The Alfonsos said...

LOVE the bite size!!!! Just enough and BUT I won’t feel to bad if I pick up another! Can’t wait to see if I get my hands on that cookbook or shirt!!!!

May 15, 2008 06:52 AM
Kyle said...

May 15, 2008 06:53 AM
Lisa said...

Itty bitty. Sigh. ;O)

May 15, 2008 06:54 AM
Poisoncupcakes said...

Bite size for me all the way!!! Though if I had to choose a runner up, I would go with itty bitty. sometimes its fun to just pop one in your mouth. Hey if they are smaller you can eat a lot more right? haha. Of course there are those of us (me) that eat two bite size anyways hehe. I don’t think you can go wrong with a cupcake though!!!

May 15, 2008 06:54 AM
Katarina said...

I love the itty-bitty ones, then you can have more :) But it seems nice to make the bigest one and share with someone, but they can steel all the frosting, so i go for A.

May 15, 2008 06:56 AM
La'laila said...

The bite-size with a lot of frosting on top! (: your site is so lovely, thank you (:

May 15, 2008 07:05 AM
Heidi said...

Enough for two is my kinda size! Who wants to be teased with those others. The more the merrier right? Plus, if you absolutely can’t finish it……it’s always fun to share sweets with someone else!

May 15, 2008 07:05 AM
koffiekitten said...

Cupsize b for me, just bitesize….. I really like the pic, it shold be a poster!

May 15, 2008 07:15 AM
Kärt said...

Definately a B, a bitesize :)

May 15, 2008 07:22 AM
Tanya said...

I’m a “B” cupcake size. Though sometimes I need an “Enough For Two” size!

May 15, 2008 07:30 AM
Farah K. said...

Eeks the prizes are so tempting!! hahaha


May 15, 2008 07:32 AM
helen said...

Itty Bitty! They look so cute on a cakestand all together and don’t make you feel as bad when you eat about 5 :) Good things come in small packages!

Oh and they cook quicker and I am impatient!

May 15, 2008 07:32 AM
nicisme said...

That book looks amazing – great idea, thanks!

Suffused With Love said...

Gotta go with C, I think “Enough for two” would make me feel a bit too guilty haha!

May 15, 2008 08:11 AM
Mari said...

Itty bitty of course! Then I can have one more!

May 15, 2008 08:16 AM
hazel said...

I like size A, but a lot of them to share with my kids!

May 15, 2008 08:26 AM
whisk and spoon said...

A is for “About” as much as I can fit in my tummy…

B is for “Balancing” too much with not enough….

C is for “Can” definitely fit in two, or three more….

D is for “Depends” on whatever size I have on hand!

May 15, 2008 08:34 AM
Deanne said...

My partner would defo say I am a handful so of course I’ll have to go with that one! lol

May 15, 2008 08:38 AM
::sämyii:: said...

I think it would be amazing to have a little tea snack with my fiance and eat a cupcake enough for two…a bite, a kiss, a bite, a kiss…:P

May 15, 2008 08:48 AM
Precious Moments said...

jennie w. said...

I’m delurking for this giveaway!
I’m going to say itty-bitty. But only if I can have several different kinds. If there were only one flavor, I’d go for the standard size. There’s no guilt involved. The bigger sizes make me feel naughty.

sharon said...

Well, I think the regular. That way I don’t feel too guilty when I eat two!

May 15, 2008 11:12 AM
Vickie LeBlanc said...

My answer would be C – a handful. I love cake (of all kinds). I often make cupcakes – this way I can control myself and not eat a giant piece of cake.

May 15, 2008 11:19 AM
Rita Weiss said...

I love cuppycakes! Enough for two please!

May 15, 2008 11:21 AM
Meg said...

Handful baby! :)

May 15, 2008 11:24 AM
Angie said...

Bite size for me, unless It’s an all day munch-a-thon. Then I enjoy a handful on my desk!

May 15, 2008 11:25 AM
Michele said...

It depends — if I have to share with my two-year-old who loves to try whatever I am eating, then D (Enough for Two) takes the cake.

If it’s just me, then I’d say B (Bite-Size). Not too big, not too small…just right.

May 15, 2008 11:26 AM
Miss S said...

Itty-bitty for me!

It’s more than enough to please :)

May 15, 2008 11:28 AM

Kristy Trefry said...

I Have to say the “D Cup” would be the one I’d have to choose! I have changed my eating habits to make a healthier “me” so if I was going to “slip” I would want to do it in the biggest most delicious way:)
I LOVE your site! I have been checking daily since I seen you on Martha! I cannot wait to make ur little cupcake balls on a stick for my niece’s 4th birthday party in August:)

My answer would have to be D, enough for 2. When I have cupcakes I really have cupcakes:) Now I want a cupcake. Thanks so much!

Hmmm, I’d think I’d pick, enough for two (also seen as the D-cup, lol) You know, have some now, and then some more later!

I like making size C if its for a smaller group/the only sweet available. If its for a potluck or party where there will be lots of sweet treats, size A. For a shower or something I’ll make size B (depending on the size of the crowd). – Katie

May 15, 2008 12:11 PM
Ettiene said...

I am a bite sized girl but every once in a while i can eat a couple of handfuls. And then i remove the cupcakes from the room and go to the gym.
