Trixie said...

I love the bite-size, they arem super cute and can be dressed up to be fancy…plus you don’t feel so bad when you eat a bunch, because they are small, right?

May 21, 2008 08:33 PM
Tori said...

Bite size is just right! Your cupcakes are awesome!

May 21, 2008 08:51 PM
B. Staples said...

Let’s go with the standard cup . Sometimes its too much but most times it’s just right!

May 21, 2008 08:53 PM
Rizzle said...

Bite sized always hits the spot. Yum!

May 21, 2008 09:06 PM
Merav said...

HANDFUL! Especially if it’s calorie-free. ;)

May 21, 2008 09:16 PM
Alicia said...

I love cupcakes no matter the size. Do you have anything bigger than D? If not, then I’ll have to stick with D. Or have lots of As. Have I mentioned I love cake esp. cupcakes?

May 21, 2008 09:22 PM
Tiffany said...

Bite size then you can enjoy more than one without the guilt ! LOL. Love your blog and all the inspiration.

May 21, 2008 10:04 PM
Robin said...

Definitely two hands full!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

Itty Bitty when you’re dating and trying to ace the test
Bite Size when you’re married and proven to be the best
Handful when you’re busy with kids and can’t get any rest
Enough for Two when it’s just you and the baby on your breast!

May 22, 2008 12:32 AM
Michelle Baker said...

The handfull fills me up, but the bite-sized are so much more fun! :)

May 22, 2008 02:19 AM
Kairlotta said...

Bite-sized for sure! Yummy! Yummy! I enjoy reading your blog. You are such an inspiration to me!

May 22, 2008 04:32 AM
Melissa said...

I just adore your blog—ran across it not too long ago and have been hooked on your beautiful creations ever since.
Love me some itty bittys—so, I’d say my cup size is an A.

May 22, 2008 05:58 AM
Sarah said...

I use the handful size mostly all the time because whenever I use the bite-size one I’m always left wanting more (bigger cupcakes). But for the younger kids I use the bite-size ones. It’s easier for them to work with.
Thanks for giving me the chance to play! I just found your site and am totally addicted. :)

May 22, 2008 07:20 AM
eLiZaBeTh said...

HI! I prefer the HANDFULL SIZE! So enjoyable…

Yay, your site rocks!! :)

May 22, 2008 07:29 AM
Evami said...

I just discovered your blog,by looking at the Martha stewart show. And i`m enjoying myself,and i want to go to the kitchen and start baking right away:)
I`m definately coming back:)

And i must go for the D,enough for two…That doesn`t even match my real size:)

May 22, 2008 09:26 AM
Robin said...

Since a cupcake sounds like complete heaven to me at this moment – enough for two! But I’m keeping it for myself ;-)

May 22, 2008 10:07 AM
mimi said...

Handful! I love it to have something from my cupcake. With the bite size you just bite once in your cupcake and then it’s gone. And so you want another one but then it seems like you eat too much. But if you have a handful one you have more but you don’t think you’re eating too much

May 22, 2008 12:49 PM
masifu said...

Cup “A”!! A little bite goes a long way.

May 22, 2008 02:00 PM
Jodi said...

I would have to confess I just use the regular, standard size – should venture out and try some others. Thanks for the great giveaway!

May 22, 2008 04:19 PM
Stephanie said...

A – Itty Bitty

May 22, 2008 04:35 PM
mariav said...

I’d say I’m a D kind of girl :-) Although any size is good enough for me!!!

May 22, 2008 04:43 PM
Frenchiejo said...

Itty Bitty unfortunately. Alas, a girl can’t have everything! Love your blog BTW – you are so talented! :O)

May 22, 2008 04:45 PM
Katie said...

itty bitty for me please! definately the easiest to eat politely!

May 22, 2008 04:46 PM
libbyzh said...

bite-size… that way you can have a bunch and not consume any calories! ;)

My vote is for cupcake size B. I love cupcakes!! I like a little cake with my frosting. That is the best!!!

“C”- Handfull… although it may be nice for “D”! Thanks so much!

May 22, 2008 08:03 PM
Stacy said...

I’m gonna go with B) Bite Size!!! LOL

a bite is a treat..a handful is a Meal! How great to get a chance to win :) thanks!

May 22, 2008 09:21 PM
sweetpotato said...

Definitely C! It’s the perfect size.

May 22, 2008 09:34 PM
Jennifer said...

Itty Bitty for sure!!! why you ask?

1. I can eat more and don’t feel nearly as bad
2. twice as many cupcakes with the same amount of batter!
3. They’re incredibly cute. Everyone thinks so, believe me ;)

I love your blog! You inspire me to become my own bakerella!


May 22, 2008 09:50 PM
meg.. said...

Enough for 2 – since I’ve always got someone around begging to share.

May 22, 2008 09:52 PM

I Have to say the “D” would be the one I’d have to choose! Only because you can put more designs on it!

I like bite-size/standard. Its the perfect size and you can still share if you like. :)

May 22, 2008 10:03 PM
ladybug said...

I’m the ‘B’ cup because Bite-sized is best. Itty bitty is too small to satisfy and bigger than that is just too much to handle. Thanks for the opportunity to win and thanks for sharing your ideas and goodies.

May 22, 2008 10:18 PM
elaine said...

If you’re being literal, I’d like a baker’s dozen of Ds, please! I love me my sweets! In the spirit of double entendres — my jogging routine prefers C and below.

May 22, 2008 11:47 PM
Rene said...

hmm…. I say enough for two, that’s if I can share…..

May 23, 2008 12:13 AM
Rebecca said...

Well, I am ‘enough for two’ but would like to be a ‘handful’! I love your blog. Thank you for sharing with us all!

May 23, 2008 12:58 AM
Jen Snyder said...


I love to just pop the whole thing in my mouth and enjoy it all at once– and if they’re small, no one minds having more than one, so I can taste it all again, and again, and again.


May 23, 2008 01:16 AM
The Hanlons said...

Handful for sure! Love your blog! My friend and I are doing your cupcake pops for a baby shower…we are so excited to show them off! Thanks!

May 23, 2008 02:17 AM
Leeann said...

I guess it depends on the situation, but most times I’d pick C!

May 23, 2008 02:59 AM
Erin Gee said...

My cupcake cup runneth over. The more the merrier with a little left over to share. Size D is right for me!

May 23, 2008 03:19 AM
G said...

A handful, it has a good cake to icing ratio.

May 23, 2008 05:24 AM
letiziae said...

i am a bite-size, just the right amount to satisfy a sweet tooth, although sometimes i’ll find myself having more than just one.

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

I prefer bite-size cupcakes. They are just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth and big enough to add an extra elements to make them extra special.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Petite Ace of Spades said...

I guess I have to stick to the size “B”(bite size) or “C” as I’m living in France … France is sooooo boring for bakes and cakes …
No fancy paper-cups, no “D” sized ones … Booohooo !
I’m dreaming of these “enough for two” cups since I’ve seen them in your blog !!!

Best from Paris,

Heather said...

Wow, are you about to exceed the amount of comments aloud? Hahaha. Well, I prefer size b. I am not a huge cake person (though I made that chocoalte cake a while back when I tried out the rose cupcakes, and it was really good), so small amounts work best. I probabyly eat more that way, anyway!

May 23, 2008 01:36 PM
The Miles Family said...

Oh D Please! Yum, Yum, Yum!!

May 23, 2008 02:00 PM
Rosemary said...

Love this blog and this is a cute question – I’m going to go for the standard! Just enough – just right.

May 23, 2008 02:01 PM
Law's said...

I am all for the handful:)

May 23, 2008 02:54 PM
Mrs. F said...

OMG, I am comment number 956. I can barely generate 5 comments on my blog. Maybe I should talk about cute things like cupcakes more often.

I wanna win, cause I love cupcakes!
Sometimes I am a B cup, sometimes I am a D cup, usually a D cup…

May 23, 2008 07:29 PM
Michael said...

Bit Size. Nibblin’ is best, especially a long nibble.

May 23, 2008 08:46 PM
Pink Heather said...

‘Enough for two’ because I always have a child or two wanting to share :) So glad I found your blog. Looks like lots of fun!

May 23, 2008 09:16 PM
Tabitha said...

Hmmmmm…well I’d have to say bite sized cause then you could make all different kinds and have just the right amount…KWIM

How fun!

May 23, 2008 09:29 PM
Laura said...

Absolutely B-not so small you can’t remember it, but small enough you can have more than one!

May 24, 2008 12:34 AM
Future Envy of the PTA said...

Wow!! 960 Comments!! You should be proud of yourself and your website! My cupcake size? Depends how much time I have on my hands. I like the standard size, but it tends to be more time consuming. So, I eat the itty-bittys to save time, and I eat several of them to make me feel like I’m actually eating a full one :) (cheating right?)

May 24, 2008 12:56 AM
Toria said...

D! Enough for two. I love getting 2 different cupcakes with my best friend and splitting ‘em.

May 24, 2008 04:22 AM
meddlingkidd said...

Gotta go with the Handful :)!


May 24, 2008 04:48 AM
hanna said...

B-bite sized for me thanks :)

May 24, 2008 07:25 AM
madrekarin said...

Mmmmm. BITE-SIZED cupcakes, teeny things, make for guiltless cupcake pleasure.
A perfect end to lunch with a friend, the STANDARD of course, will do. In need of a little consolation? A HANDFUL will make you feel better.
But when you are good, and no one’s around- stuff your face with a CUPCAKE FOR TWO!!

May 24, 2008 11:42 AM
the big cheese said...

b for sure

May 24, 2008 03:13 PM
Jess said...

I love the itty bitty size so you can all different kinds of cupcakes and not feel guilty!

May 24, 2008 04:09 PM
Dorothy said...

I think I will go with bite sized, then you can not feel guilty about eating more than one :)

May 24, 2008 04:24 PM
The Flick Family said...

i would have to say D because then i can share with my hubby and daughter. yum!

May 24, 2008 05:44 PM

Just found your website and love the bitesize cupcakes anytime. Lemon Poppyseed with lemon cream cheese icing is just what i love.

May 24, 2008 11:17 PM

Ooooo.. I’d have to say bite size, cause you can make a whole bunch of cupcakes and have enough for yourself and to share with someone special! :)

Moonstone said...

I would definitely go for the ‘B’ cup…how cute are they? Perfect mouth and hand sized! Not to mention, the perfect size for that after school snack when kids would just about eat an elephant from hunger! Thanks!

May 25, 2008 04:02 AM
Donna said...

Definitely a “D”. Enough for two!
Love the cookbook! Pick Me!

nipe said...

The bite size.If one isn’t enough, you can try another one, but now,I’d think twice about taking the second one … the summer is coming.

May 25, 2008 01:12 PM
grtrossini said...

“B” ….enough for a good bite of yummy stuff and another for the finishing tough..err, taste!

May 25, 2008 09:33 PM
Brandi Baldwin said...

I am definitely a C Cup. :-)

May 26, 2008 12:18 AM
Kristine said...

I’m all about the handful! But me, personally? Definitely larger…

May 26, 2008 01:15 AM

My fav is the bite-size – thanks to you! I have made the cupcake bites (and a few pops) on two occasions so far (Mother’s Day and my nephew’s 1st B-Day party) and they were a HUGE hit. Everyone loved them and commented how moist and adorable they were. Thank you, thank you!

i love cupcakes…cant wait to join in the fun in the blogging world!!


May 26, 2008 04:07 AM
Christine said...

Wow, so many comments! Worth a shot though. I think my favorite is the handful size (what I just used for my cupcake tree at my wedding last week), but I love the bite-size for trying flavors

May 26, 2008 07:03 AM
Erin said...


I don’t know if it would REALLY be enough for two though…

May 26, 2008 11:35 AM
Michelle said...

Bite-sized definitely! So kind of you to do a giveaway :)

May 26, 2008 11:52 AM
Elizabeth said...

Bite size, just pop it in your mouth!

May 26, 2008 02:43 PM
Jenny said...

B is my fav, I feel like I can justify eating more when they are this big!

May 26, 2008 02:54 PM
Susan in SC said...

D – enough for two! Who doesn’t love 2nds on a cupcake?!

May 26, 2008 04:16 PM
Kerry said...

C all the way…don’t they say that any more than a handful is just a waste? ;)

May 26, 2008 04:33 PM

C…I love your website!

May 26, 2008 10:17 PM
