BITE SIZED does it for me.. not too little and not too much :)

Colleen said...

Certainly a handful! Take away the rest and I can pretend they’re only itty-bitty before devouring…Hands off my cupcakes!

May 27, 2008 01:32 PM
Jennifer said...

I got a hand full! This is a great idea!

May 27, 2008 03:47 PM
Kelly Campbell said...

I prefer the B size…the standard cupcake. Yum!

Handful is just about right!!

beachbabies said...

May 27, 2008 07:26 PM
Carole said...

I would choose the small one if I can have several ( or 10 !)….

chantilly lace said...

Definitely enough for two. I am a pig, I love cake and I can never ever eat just one cupcake.Definitely enough for two.

May 27, 2008 09:34 PM
Sabrina said...

I’d say itty bitty. Why? Because then I can have more than one in lots of flavors!

LOVE your site! Going to make the cake pops for a bachelorette party I’m hosting next weekend!


May 27, 2008 09:36 PM
Emily said...

If it is cupcakes, bite-sized for me. That way I can justify having two! If you ask my hubby what I am he would tell you “Handful”! I love your blog!

May 27, 2008 11:35 PM
Olsen Family said...

D’s for me, all the way! That way when I share with my husband, I still get some!

I like a handful (C), as standard size usu. is not quite enough for me!

May 28, 2008 02:09 AM

thanks for all your posts! Love ‘em!

Larry & Erica Evans said...

I just love the bit size of course. It’s just enough to pop in your mouth, but you don’t feel (as) guilty when you have the 2nd, 3rd,… or when your REALLY weak….the 5th. I think as long as you make yourself a total limit for the day (at the beginning of the day of course), you should be fine!!! I love your site! It makes me want to bake, bake, bake!

May 28, 2008 04:24 PM

I’m going to have to go with a handful, for sure!

May 28, 2008 04:33 PM
rachelM said...

Just love everything you have on your blog. Your creativeness overfloweth. Can’t wait to try some of your new stuff with my DD over the summer. Gonna have to do some major walking to compensate for all the tasty goodies we will be consuming.


May 28, 2008 05:17 PM
Kelli said...

My heart skipped a beat when I saw D. Enough for two! That might be just enough for me!!!

May 28, 2008 06:34 PM
carefulwish said...

Double D, please.

I love me the B’s. Old school but definitely the ones for me. :)

Trish said...

I’ve heard that more than a handful is more than a mouthful……..hmmmmm.

I’m definitely a handful gal.

love your blog!

Definitely enough for two. Then I can say, “Ah, but I only ate half…”

May 29, 2008 02:20 AM
Kim said...

bite size for me if you please.

May 29, 2008 04:12 AM
Debbie said...

I choose bite size so I can justify eating more than one and if it’s a cakepop everyone want’s more than one!!

May 29, 2008 06:46 AM
buddiegirl said...

I would pick the handful so that there was enough to share, but would secretly hope that I could have it to myself.

Thank you!

May 29, 2008 04:56 PM
Owen's Mom said...

Definately a handful…with another mouthful thrown in. Isn’t bigger always better?

May 29, 2008 05:22 PM
Sharon said...

Bite size for sure. Though I can always be convinced to go for a handful. :)

May 29, 2008 06:12 PM
susan said...

I’m all for a handful :)

May 29, 2008 09:24 PM

Kevin and Katrina said...

Gotta go with bite size. Although I love the itty bitty, because then you can have a bunch and it doesn’t seem like you just ate a great big cupcake! ;)

May 30, 2008 02:05 PM
1045 said...

Well, you know, after having a baby, you definately have to go with the D… or, maybe DD, so you can share with all! :]

Nina said...

Well, If I have my period I would like the biggest one of course, haha!
Well, ok, I’ll go for the ‘C’, because I don’t like standard (that sounds so ordinary and I’m not haha).
How funny, in real life I’m a C as well..
Well I hope I’m not too late with my responds, but anyway: I love this contest. It really suits the site: so cute and funny at the same time!!
WIth love,

daurenet said...

I like them ALL. It depends what is filling them up. But I would love a cupcake cookbook!

May 30, 2008 03:21 PM
Genel said...

Bite-size definitely! They’re perfect–not too small, not too big. Yummy.

May 30, 2008 05:47 PM
Katie said...

How many of these sizes can I pick? I would have to say handful and itty-bitty. I’m afraid I can’t decide between them. I love the first bite of a big cupcake and popping the little cupcakes one at a time. Lovely site, by the way.

May 30, 2008 05:52 PM
Terasita said...

Oh, I just can’t decide. I’ve had each size at some time or another!

May 30, 2008 07:19 PM
abby said...

enough for two… in case i decide to share! :)

May 30, 2008 08:38 PM
Aimée said...

Well, B of course. Who want to share? :)

May 31, 2008 01:12 AM
mommy j said...

Itty-bitty is the right size for me! Enough for one delicious bite, and able to reach for another one on sight!

May 31, 2008 02:40 AM
S'mee said...

ooooh, I like bite sized!!! And thanks for all the inspiration!

May 31, 2008 04:12 AM
Froggie said...

B-size because it reminds me of when I was a child. Nothing was better than getting a cupcake that was decorated with lots of icing & sprinkles!

May 31, 2008 01:38 PM
frazi said...

I love your site and your ideas! I like them all depending on my mood…enough for two when I’m feeling blue, handful when I want a mouthful, bite-size when I want to minimize, and itty-bitty when I want to feel giddy. Thanks for sharing your creations!

May 31, 2008 06:55 PM
Shelley said...

Oh boy! A handful it is! ;) -CUTEST blog by the way! Keep it up. I’m loving it!

May 31, 2008 07:07 PM
Vikki B said...

Definitely a handful (c)! Then when hubby steals some as he walks by, there is still enough for me!

May 31, 2008 07:53 PM
Megan Dinsdale said...

I am definately a ‘C’…when it comes to cupcakes anyway ;)

May 31, 2008 10:10 PM
Erica said...

I’m itty bitty! Ok I’m really a handful but I love the itty bitty better :)

May 31, 2008 10:15 PM
Melanee said...

Itty bitty. That’s my ideal when it comes to cake-to-frosting ratio. It’s just the right amount of cake and just the right amount of frosting in one perfect bite. Now if only I could stop myself after just one… I love your blog! Thanks for sharing.

Well for me, i like size d. But that’s because i love cupcakes. But i also like size a, b, and c. It depends on what kind of mood your in. Like right now i’m in the mood for a cupcake for 2 (size d), but that’s just me. I love to bake, i want to become a pastry chef when i get older, i’m only 16 but i love cupcakes!!!!!!!!!!!

June 1, 2008 03:15 AM
eeeekie said...

I’m going with size D, the bigger the better! Cupcakes are nothing but pure love in your hand and size D is enough to share with your own love. Giant Cupcake, Significant Other, Quiet night at home = pure bliss.

Okay, that’s it. Comments are now cut off. I’ll announce the winners soon.

June 1, 2008 03:24 PM
Natasha said...

I’m definitely a bite-size – I want to taste everthing at once :) yum! but, that doesn’t mean I’m only going to eat one! ;)

June 19, 2008 03:08 PM
vettie said...


I don’t know if you would even read this, since it is a super old post… but I have a major question… What size is the handful of cupcake? You mention the other size as standard so I am assuming that is a 4.5 in diameter cupcake.

What size do you usually bake in? I get complaints that my cupcakes are too small, so I am just wondering… thanks!

And… i absolutely LOVE your blog..thanks for all the inspiration!

November 11, 2008 12:57 AM
Bakerella said...

vettie – I’m not sure how to measure it. So, I flattened the cupcake liner out completely flat. It’s 6″ in diameter that way. Hope this helps.

Kim said...

Definately a handful! What a great looking book… thanks for the chance!

March 25, 2009 06:29 PM
Emily said...

I would have to go with A- bite-sized so then I can eat more cupcakes and not feel as bad about it :D

March 21, 2010 03:42 PM

Alex Monroe said...

Usually a B – bite-size will do. Unless of course it’s been a bad day, then I could use a handful. :)

May 29, 2010 03:21 PM
karla said...

My would be itty-bitty one bite & more to taste with out feeling guilty it also would aloud me to taset all kind of cupcakes (right)yummy yummy for my tummy !

May 30, 2010 02:17 AM
Lindsay Adkins said...

I would have to say my favorite is B, the standard size cupcake. I’ve lost 50 pounds in the course of a year, but cupcakes are my weakness. So with the standard size I can eat guilt free & make yummy cupcakes for me & my family. They’re perfect size for my children! I would love to indulge and eat the largest cupcake I could, but that wouldn’t help keep the weight off ;)

itty bitty is my favorite….if you can pop them in your mouth in one bite….the calories don’t count right???

May 9, 2011 08:45 AM
Maria Palma said...

I would get a bite size cups, but lets be honest I would have a couple of bite size cups. A little at a time thats what I like.
