I definitely have “enough for two” as I am sure everyone in my Zumba class knows (let’s just say, there’s a whole lotta shimmy) so I have to support the D-cup-cupcake. Although, I am eying the bite-size cupcakes with desire because of the mix-and-match-ability.

I prefer bite size. Just enough to get a taste and leave you wanting a little more! Thanks for the fun!

Handful….because I don’t want to share. I love your website and have used some of your ideas with great success.

May 15, 2008 12:16 PM

Delaina said...

Definately enough for two. I have two little boys that no matter what I eat, they have to have just a bite LOL!

May 15, 2008 12:20 PM
Erin said...

C’s seem like a pretty decadent size to me. Sign me up!

May 15, 2008 12:21 PM
AK said...

Definitely the handful. The smaller ones are never enough and this provides just enough before you start to feel gross…

May 15, 2008 12:25 PM
Amy said...

May 15, 2008 12:26 PM

I am definitely going for a bite size. They are just tooo cute for words. Plus my son loves that he can pop them in his mouth. I can be reached at:

Quincy said...

I’ll say itty bitty. I always think smaller sized foods are more attractive.

May 15, 2008 12:28 PM
Angie said...

Itty bitty!! Then I can eat 5!

May 15, 2008 12:29 PM
Brittany said...

Itty Bitty! Small foods are always so fun to eat and they are great for sharing with friends.

Marla said...

I like the handful size. But I really think your cupcakes are amazing in any size.

May 15, 2008 12:37 PM
J said...

I like the Itty-Bitty size so you can have many different flavors!

May 15, 2008 12:37 PM
Pegg S said...

Your blog is such a visual treat! I think my size is Bite-size – that seems the perfect amount to me. If I wanted another bite-size, I wouldn’t feel so guilty! Thanks!!

May 15, 2008 12:38 PM
Vintage Tea said...

I’m going to go bitesize so I don’t feel too bad when I have more than one!!!

May 15, 2008 12:40 PM
Wendy said...

Thanks for giving us all a chance to win and definately a B is just right!

May 15, 2008 12:43 PM
mk99 said...

What a great idea, and cute too.

I love bite size cupcakes, muffins, etc. They are cute and you feel less guilty eating them.

Sometimes I wish I was a a bite size cupcake in real life.

May 15, 2008 12:45 PM
Allie said...

bite size!

May 15, 2008 12:45 PM
Michelle said...

Definitely A or B


May 15, 2008 12:46 PM
Erin said...

One thing I don’t share is my cupcakes, so I would have to be a B. We are talking about cupcakes, right? ;)

May 15, 2008 12:47 PM
Nina_VK said...

Enough for two for sure! Who doesn’t like eating two cupcakes. ;)

May 15, 2008 12:51 PM
jenny said...

C. Handful
It’s the perfect size for a decent breakfast.

May 15, 2008 12:53 PM
Lucrecia said...

Most certainly D – enough for two. And I’m all about sharing!

May 15, 2008 12:53 PM
Aunt LoLo said...

Oh, I’m a C – handful…any way you look at it. ;-)

May 15, 2008 12:54 PM
CB said...

I am the opposite of my real cup size (TMI?) – I tend to be an itty bitty or bite size cupcake eater. LOL.

Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway! I hope I win :)

May 15, 2008 12:59 PM
Jen C said...

Cup Size D! If you are going to splurge, go all out!

May 15, 2008 01:02 PM
Anonymous said...

Too cute!! I love reading your blog, its fun and inspiring. My choice is the handful. Thank you.

May 15, 2008 01:03 PM
Nichole said...

I’m going with C.

May 15, 2008 01:10 PM
Amber said...

I love them all, but I’ll go with B the standard size. That way I won’t feel guilty if I have two. :)

May 15, 2008 01:11 PM
GabrielaD said...

Bite size for me. I just find that they are the perfect little size for everyone (and if by chance you need to have two, then its not so bad).

May 15, 2008 01:11 PM
Ali said...

har. when it comes to cupcakes, I go with B. :O) Awesome contest bakerella!

May 15, 2008 01:12 PM
lindsey said...

I am a bite size type of girl. Unfortunately, I can never have just one. What a cute contest! Thanks :o)

Why mess around with a good thing, let’s keep it simple. Standard (B cup) for me. Bakerella RULES!!
Thanks for sharing with us!

May 15, 2008 01:15 PM
Megret said...

The A — I love how I can eat 4-5 of these in one sitting and not feel as guilty as if I’d eaten a bigger one!


May 15, 2008 01:15 PM
SLM said...

It looks like the Bite Size is the perfect balance of frosting to cake. Since I only eat cake in any form for the frosting, I want to maximize how much frosting I get! :-)

I guess that makes me a B cup. Haha…haven’t seen that size since I was 12. ;-)

May 15, 2008 01:21 PM
Jennifer said...

It usually depends on the time of the month, day of the week or time or year. Time of the month, well we all know that calls for an “Enough for Two”, but it’s for one. The holidays also call for this size, except at cookie swaps, then bite size is perfect! And from Monday through Friday I always seem to grow a cup size as the week goes on!

Your blog is my favorite!

May 15, 2008 01:23 PM
Kelly said...

cupcakes are my weakness but i settle for the handful. :) i don’t want to turn into “enough for two” myself!

May 15, 2008 01:23 PM
LAMDZINE said...

well, after viewing the selections, I’m going to go with C. That looks like it would be perfect for me. Do they come in different colors? lol

May 15, 2008 01:26 PM
Lauren said...

B- Bite Size. Not too messy and I can eat more.

May 15, 2008 01:26 PM
Andi said...

It’s hard to choose, but I would pick bite sized.

May 15, 2008 01:27 PM
cookienurse said...

May 15, 2008 01:27 PM

I’d be a handful. I’ve never seen cuter cupcakes. You truley are so creative and talented. I can’t believe it. Thanks for the opportunity! Jennifer

May 15, 2008 01:41 PM
Candace said...

Definitely a B! I’ve never had a C or D but I’m MORE than happy to try one!!

May 15, 2008 01:42 PM
Karen said...

I vote for bite sized! I can snack without guilt meaning go back for seconds!

May 15, 2008 01:42 PM
Spencer Family said...

Definitely a B. I don’t like to share mine with anyone and the pops are good but then you have to eat a few.

May 15, 2008 01:42 PM
The Alexanders said...

What a hard decision! I guess itty-bitty since I don’t like to get frosting on the sides of my mouth–but can eat more than one!

May 15, 2008 01:42 PM
Principled Parent said...

Definitely “D-Enough for two”! I love desserts and a mouthful or two or three or four is just not enough!

May 15, 2008 01:44 PM
Courtney said...

Definitely a handful! If you’re going to eat something sinful and delicious, a bite is not enough.

May 15, 2008 01:46 PM
CiCi said...

First of all I must say I love your cupcakes! Cupcakes aren’t very common here in Sweden, but I’m giving it a try! Your site is so inspiring! Thanx!
I like the bite-size cupcake, so you can eat more than one. =)

May 15, 2008 01:46 PM
April said...

I guess I would have to say itty bitty. Just enough to not ruin my diet but also gives me what I need, which is sweets!

May 15, 2008 01:48 PM
Wanda said...

I enjoy the bite size, it’s the one all my family goes for. Not too small like to go for seconds or too big like to leave some. NO guilt here!. Thanks for this oppportunity… I hope to be a winner.

May 15, 2008 01:50 PM
emily kate said...

Usually the bite-size but sometimes enough for 2 is fun! :)

May 15, 2008 01:50 PM
Jennifer Lee said...

I think I would go for the bite-sized–just enough to satisfy, but not too much that you would feel guilty having two.

jennifers laugh at (with no spaces)

May 15, 2008 01:52 PM
Megan said...

hello cupcake!

Eeek…I would have to say I’d enjoy a nice handful… well, maybe multiple handfuls. Keep up the great work!

May 15, 2008 01:53 PM
Sarah said...

I usually eat the normal size ones, but I think the bite size are the cutest!

May 15, 2008 01:53 PM
lexibot said...

A handful is definitely enough for me!

May 15, 2008 01:54 PM
Mom, wife, scrapaholic... said...

When I am feeling blue C is the best for me, nothing like eating my sorrows away! For any other time my family usually goes with B. Thanks for the nice offer.

May 15, 2008 01:54 PM
talida said...

bitesize for me most of the time!

May 15, 2008 01:55 PM
Jenn said...

I am personally a D, but if my wishes came true, I would definitely go for the bite-size B!

May 15, 2008 01:55 PM
Dianne said...

Bite-sized! Because then I can eat two and not feel guilty.

Thank you!

M.E. said...

I think the standard cup for me. eglavtcheva at hotmail dot com

May 15, 2008 02:02 PM
Anna van Schurman said...

I think you get the best cupcake to frosting ratio with B; but IRL I’m a C.

May 15, 2008 02:03 PM
JennyC.No3 said...

I’m a closet ‘Enough for Two’ type gal but most days I’ll be just as happy with a ‘Handful’. But who can stop with just one cupcake?

May 15, 2008 02:04 PM
SuzyQ said...

Haha! Itty bitty – but I fill the cup all the way at least! :)

May 15, 2008 02:04 PM
Nanette Cornish said...

Itty Bitty…that way you can have about 20 and it’s about ONE-ish standard cupcake :)

Amanda said...

It depends on the flavor! Usually a bitesize for a cupcake but sometimes it’s just more fun to eat the itty bittys and have more than one…or two!

cakes2go_bytheresa said...

The Queen of Quite a Lot said...

Usually a handful. But if there are two flavors to try I get the biggest one of each and DH and I will each get half.

Although the tiny ones are perfect for little treats throughout the day.

May 15, 2008 02:24 PM
zazoza said...

my favorite has to standart B! not too big, not too tiny! JUST RIGHT!

May 15, 2008 02:24 PM
Sara said...

C is for cookie, and cupcake, and…

well, that’s good enough for me. :)
