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?

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?

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!

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.

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. :)

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:)

Robin said...

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

Jen Snyder said...

itty-bitty.

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.

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.

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.

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,

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!

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

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?)

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!!

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!
