b is for bite-size and it suits me perfectly! there is nothing like a cupcake you can hold with one hand and enjoy in about 4 bites. such the perfect treat! however…they always leave me wanting more. i’ll take 2 bite-size please!

May 16, 2008 06:02 AM
Susie Whatsit? said...

Oh most definitely the “D” – enuf for 2!! I want to share my little cupcake loves AND I want to eat a lot of my little cupcake loves. Sometimes bigger really is better! :)

Amanda said...

Definitly itty-bitty for me. Perfect size and you don’t have to feel bad for eating two.

Handful is all you get from Sydney Australia.

GK said...


I mean, why settle for itty-bitty (although I’m in LOVE with your cupcake lollies) when you can have GRANDIOSO cupcakes?!

To be honest, I probably wouldn’t be able to finish it… but it’s the IDEA that I love. ;)

amandaV. said...

I would have to say B- bite sized is usually just right, although I can think of times when each of those sizes would be appropriate!

Yummy yummy!

May 16, 2008 04:11 PM
Natalie said...

Snort! How funny is this! Depending on how many cupcakes I’m eating on a regular basis, I vary between bite size and a handful!

May 16, 2008 04:18 PM
Nikki57 said...

When I’m baking I like the standard B’s, but if I’m buying cupcakes gimmie C’s!

May 16, 2008 04:20 PM
MotherMe said...

I guess I’m really a “B”, although I have been known to add some padding and sport a “C” or “D” at times…

May 16, 2008 04:22 PM
Cam & Tanis said...

handful is where its at!!! I love your blog by the way- it makes me want to learn to use fondant!

May 16, 2008 04:27 PM
Firesong said...

The handful has always been quite right. Don’t want too much or too little.

May 16, 2008 04:28 PM
Megan said...

Tracey in WA said...

I like the bite size, so I can eat them in one bite and eat more then just one, besides if ti all fits in your mouth at once, it isn’t fattening, RIGHT??? :) … thanks for the great blog and all the FABULOUS ideas!!

koprime said...

so so cute — definitely the “A” size — that way, if there’s a variety, there’ll be enough room in my tummy for a sampling!

May 16, 2008 05:55 PM
kristal said...

thechaoticmom said...

I love the bite sized ones. Why? You can have the illusion that you aren’t eating too many!

May 16, 2008 06:49 PM
Sharla said...

I would say bite full, one bite is not enough and more than that and I’d have to hit the treadmill for an extra 30..!!

May 16, 2008 06:50 PM

May 16, 2008 06:50 PM
Jess said...

A handful…with the regular ones I always want just a bit more so this way I don’t end up having two. :D

May 16, 2008 06:52 PM
Jenn Jones said...

It actually depends on the flavor for me…if it is something fruity like strawberry or lemon…I want a lot! If it is chocolate…bite size…I know…I’m weird! :)

May 16, 2008 07:01 PM
Anne said...

I love the bite-sized. They make such a nice little snack.

May 16, 2008 07:02 PM
Leigh said...

I like the bite-size because of the cake-to-frosting ratio!

May 16, 2008 07:10 PM
Janelle said...

(C) Handful. Very fun!

May 16, 2008 07:15 PM
