“Enough for 2″ for sure. You can never have too much cupcake. BTW, you are genuinely an inspiration. You’re awesome!

I found your blog after I saw you on Martha, and it’s such a sweet treat! We’re in the process of moving, I can’t wait to finish so I can start baking. Thank you for the tasty treats and great photos, they certainly make days at the office pass faster.

I think Bite-size – or maybe even itty-bitty – Then you can eat more without all the guilt!!

Book Hog said...

A handful – cause when it comes to sweets, a handful is always needed! (Or enough itty-bitties to constitute a handful – hee hee). Fun giveaway! Thxs!

A handful!

Let’s get serious, if I ate the smaller ones I’d end up eating like 5 of them.

I’m going to say handful because if I’m going to eat a cupcake I don’t want a little teaser, give me the whole thing :)

Mandy said...

D – Because the only thing that can make a delicious cupcake better is sharing it with someone you love (especially if the one you love lets you eat most of the frosting). Thanks for the fun giveaway!

Jaina said...

I think it would have to depend on if I was in a cake-ish mood or a frosting mood. Because the enough for two would be wonderful if I was in a cake-ish mood. But if I were looking for gobs of frosting, one of the others piled high with frosting would work quite nicely.

May 15, 2008 03:10 PM

LeAnn said...

D – Enough for two! That doesn’t mean you should eat it all in one sitting – share with a friend or save some for later :P

Definately a good C with a lot of icing on top!! :)

mariko said...

Oooh, who doesn’t love a contest? I’m going to select B because I like a nice frosting to cake ratio. If the cupcake is too big, there’s just not enough frosting.

woo, this is a popular one! Love your site. I’d have to go with itty-bitty because they’re so darn cute, but I’m not saying I wouldn’t want to eat 500 of them.

Itty bitty! I love how small and cute they are – and they’re the perfect bite for me! I never stop at one though but I love eating the tiny ones more than the regular ones!

Since my own personal “cupcake” is an “I” (yeah, that’s right!), I’ll have to choose my goal of “C.”

Definitely a handful…

slinmn said...

Itty Bitty is just right for me. I can just pop it into my mouth and get a great balance of cake and frosting without worrying about getting frosting all over my face. Of course I need to have more than one of your tasty treats!

May 15, 2008 04:09 PM

raegan said...

I’m in more a bite size mood lately. However, the pendulum swings over the entire spectrum when speaking of cupcakes. Have you ever had a bad cupcake? Besides, bite size means I can try more than one. Variety is the spice of life!

May 15, 2008 04:12 PM

Just me said...

I eat my cupcakes by breaking them in half, making a sandwich out of them..that way the frosting doest get all over! I would enjoy the handful…
Thanks!

280 comments?!? Holy cow! Guess it’s a long shot for me, but I like those odds. :) I love the itty-bitty cup size. Perfect, sweet and enough to calm the craving. Plus, they are sooo cute when they are that small!

Culinarily Obsessed said...

I have to say my favorite it definitely bite size. The minis are great, but I always want more than one, the handful leaves me feeling like I shouldn’t have eaten quite all of it. But the bite size is just perfect – satisfying yet not guilt-ridden

May 15, 2008 04:39 PM

tswhite said...

Wow, um … itty-bitty? Probably. Yeah, so I can try many different flavors and not feel like I need to hide the under the table out of shame!

I love the itty-bitty size. That way I can try one of every kind and not feel *as* guilty! That book is too cute, if I don’t win it or the shirt I will need the enough-for-two size with dark chocolate gonache topping to cope. Thanks as always for the cupcake inspiration.
