B – Bite Size (Standard Cup) because the entire cupcake it fits perfectly in my mouth, not too much and not too little. Haha, yes, squirrel cheeks =)

A-Itty bitty for me.
They are just the right size to pop one in your mouth.
I also have to say- since i am itty bitty ..(a whopping 5’2″ with shoes!) i had to pick itty bitty anyways. My 4 girls are ittybitties, but my 2 boys–not so much. ;)
Now on to the giveaway!!!!!!!
hello … me me me!!

Jessica said...

You rock!
I’d go for bite-sized, because it’s all about having just enough cake to justify lots of frosting. :-) Thanks for doing this!

May 17, 2008 12:04 AM
chantal! said...

I am bite-sized!!!
Fun, fast and friendly because they’re usually cuter and guilts me less than the others.

Thanks for the chance to win…I would definately say enough for two—what can I say I love treats, and my kids usually steal…maybe with that there is enough to share! Thanks for the chance to win!

Alecia said...

First off…love the cup cake papers…I think my size is enough for two…I LOVE being able to share yummy food with a friend…nothing better than introducing new stuff to your friend or special someone and enjoying it together!

enough for two, of course! (: who doesn’t like having someone to share it with? unless that cupcake is just TOO good. then you’ll have enough to indulge yourself as much as you please~ i love your site! it’s always the sweetest thing (:

Enough for two!!!

Bite sized you can less guilt, even though you can’t resist another and another…:)

May 17, 2008 12:33 AM
Anonymous said...

Mmmm.. That’s a hard one… I think bite-sized because you can have many bites and you don’t feel as bad…UNLESS it’s a chocolate cupcake then you need “enough for 2″. I want that t-shirt and book!

May 17, 2008 12:34 AM
cakesbyjess said...

My favorite is D – Enough for Two. That way, my husband and I can share it. :) What a fun giveaway!!! :)

jennifer tuttle said...

Give me a handful, indeed. The mini and standard just insult me :) and the guilt of the cup for two sends me over the edge.
I have been lusting after this new book…what a wonderful prize. Yet the tshirt is perfect…what a dilemma!

Susie Homemaker said...

i think when i was being created, i wandered around too much and missed the line for cupcakes in general. therefore God, being generous, gave me the minis and lots of icing out of kindness instead of no cupcakes at all. enough for two is what you get when you stand in the cupcake line twice, and skip the line for icing…and everyone knows the icing is the best part anyway, right? (let’s hope.)

The bite-size is for me! It offers the best cake to frosting ratio for my taste!

B is perfect for me. But it can’t be flat on top….needs to be nicely rounded. In fact I made some chocolate muffins tonite that are perfection……….YUM

I hope I win….don’t we all?

itty bitty cos the cupcake would look sooo cute plus the way you can just pop them into your mouth =)

May 17, 2008 05:32 AM
katy said...

well, not so thrilled to admit it, but i’m enough for 2. yep. If it was topped with a generous sprinkling of coconut, i’d be forced to say, it’s just for one – me!

shan said...

Ha! Too funny! Personally Id like to have a cupcake handful… if it was “that time” maybe one handful for each hand! lol When I bake for others though, potlucks etc, I go for the mini. With all the delicious food there, some will actually pass up a regular size cuppie.. OH THE HORROR!! but if it is an A cup.. no one can resist a nibble! :P

Thanks for giving this awesome opportunity to total strangers!

Oliver's said...

Standard size…the original always makes me feel like a kid again (except the part about not having to worry about them hips and thighs). Paula

May 17, 2008 12:48 PM
Kat said...

I prefer the B-cup cupcake. I have better luck controlling the moistness of the cake with the standard size.

The pervy side of me was thinking you were asking something else!

Are we taking about muffins here? :) I prefer itty-bitty ones. I like cutesy stuff.

May 17, 2008 02:25 PM
WishTrish said...

Itty Bitty. Because it doesn’t matter how many you eat, servings that size don’t count!

Love the site, by the way!

May 17, 2008 02:29 PM

Ohhh I prefer a “D” but i’m not sharing!

May 17, 2008 02:32 PM

Megs said...

I would say handful. This really made me laugh. I hope I win!! I made your cake balls for the first time a few months ago and I can’t tell you how big of a hit they were.

May 17, 2008 02:56 PM

dessertobsessed said...

I am definitely a size D! Enough for two is just enough for one me!

May 17, 2008 05:23 PM
Melissa &amp; James Atkinson said...

I am a ‘C’ kind of gal! After you endulge in a standard cupcake you always want more, so you might as well go for the bigger cup ;)

i ♥ your blog! keep up the beautiful work!

May 17, 2008 05:30 PM
emilyadi said...

A handful, assuming there are chocolate chips in it…

May 17, 2008 06:22 PM
680 said...

Itty bitty for me please!

May 17, 2008 06:29 PM
Ambjer said...

I’m going to say B Cup!
It’s just the perfect size–it’s ALL for you, and it’s not so much that you’ll feel guilty later for eating it. Plus [as you keep on showing us!], they are so fun to decorate with!

[I don't know if you can pick your prize if you win, but I was going to say that if I should win, I'd like the shirt--I already have the book, I got it RIGHT when it came out...I had it reserved like four months before it was released! Haha]

May 17, 2008 07:15 PM
Tori said...

While itty-bitty and bite-size should be enough for me, the handful is what I prefer. ;) However, I do have to say that every recipe I have tried of yours makes me want enough for two!!!

May 17, 2008 07:39 PM
morgana said...

I choose “enough for two” that’s to say a little bit for me (I just have to taste everything) and a mega cupcake for my boyfriend (he really LOVES cupcakes).

May 17, 2008 08:10 PM
Justina said...

I would definitely have to say C, just the right size!

May 17, 2008 08:14 PM

I like the handful with LOTS of frosting!

May 17, 2008 08:33 PM
Hanne said...

Bite size is what usually we can get here in Norway.

We just have to eat more then :-)

Please include me in your drawing.

May 17, 2008 08:50 PM
Dawn said...

I wish I was a handful – a C but unfortunately I’m more than more than a handful!!

May 17, 2008 09:19 PM
Mrs. Guilloux said...

Enough for Two-gotta share with hubby and baby!!

May 17, 2008 09:57 PM
McKenzie said...

Hmm, Though an “itty bitty” snack is always good for that small sweet craving, the “bite size” fills a deeper craving for a mouth full of gooey goodness, for myself though I’d have to say I’m an “enough for two” type of gal. Its big enough to share or hoard for yourself, eat half now and save half for later. Two desserts in one!

May 17, 2008 11:15 PM
Annie said...

If you’re looking at my chest, I’d have to say a “B”, but if its my stomach that your speaking to, Please fill me up with “D’s”!

Thank you for the wonderful blog, and your brilliant creations! I turn green with envy when I see all the great products you can use over there.

May 17, 2008 11:48 PM

WooHoo! I’m so excited!

Giabella Designs said...

If I eat more than and itty bitty size, I turn into more than a handful!

May 18, 2008 01:19 AM
Melissa said...

I like itty bitty cupcakes because I can try more than one flavor without feeling too guilty.

May 18, 2008 01:29 AM
Michelle said...

LOVE your blog!!! I’ve tried a few of your recipes and have had tons of fun with them :) My kids love the cupcake pops!! As for cupcake size, I think I’m more of an itty bitty kinda gal. That way I can keep popping them in my mouth but never feel guilty cause they’re so, well, itty bitty!!

May 18, 2008 01:35 AM
Brandy said...

I’m would say the handful. ;o).

May 18, 2008 01:39 AM
Susie said...

I’d have to say C. Maybe 2 C’s!! Thanks!

May 18, 2008 01:43 AM
Q said...

Wow – how nice to offer a prize! I’m going to go for the bite-sized so I can have several different bite sized flavors! :)

May 18, 2008 02:23 AM
rmeyfe said...

I gotta go with B (bite sized), if you look at the ratio of top of cupcake (yumminess) to bottom of cupcake it is just right!!!

May 18, 2008 02:30 AM
Denise said...

Definitely B…the standard. Love your blog!
