I love the minis. Except they’re dangerous. Really dangerous! Lovely page, I just subscribed.

bite size because then you get a good ratio of cake to icing in each bite.

Enough for two, so I can share with my sweet hubby!!! Thanks for all the great ideas and a chance to win.

Thanks, Bakerella, for making this so much fun! Not only do you treat us with your amazing ideas, but now you are offering a giveaway! Wow! So much for the cupcake lover to handle!
Let’s see: Itty-bitty works to give me just the right size when I’m training for a race (I can snack without the guilt).
Bite-size- when that’s all that’s offered, I’ll take it. I also tend to use this size when I’m baking cupcakes for my kiddos.
Handful…my favorite size, I tend to flock to this size.
Enough for two- um….you mean enough for a mom who’s had a bad week -I’ll take it!

thanks, again, bakerella!

Handfull is just right! Your great keep it up. Thanks

misspro312 said...

I love the handful! Its just enough to eat, because bite size you need to eat three.

May 18, 2008 04:11 AM
Em said...

Itty bitty is best cuz that way I can eat many different ones :) And like I always say “mini cupcakes are best cuz you can get all the flavor without *waisting* a day’s worth of calories!” hahahah get it, “waisting” instead of “wasting” hahahaha gawd, I just crack me up! hahahah

Have a delicious day!

Joanne said...

Definitely a Handful, but don’t forget the milk to help wash it all down. But then again… it I have an itty-bitty then I don’t feel so bad when I go for seconds and even thirds. Who am I kidding? All sizes are beautiful no matter how you dress them up. Thanks for the chance to comment. Your site is always a highlight in my roving blog searches as a new mom finding some delicious downtime.

Thanks for the opportunity.

May 18, 2008 05:59 AM
Marie said...

I like the handful :D

May 18, 2008 06:04 AM
Cindy said...

mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm since I am a newly wed, I think the one for two would be my choice!

May 18, 2008 08:32 AM
Laura Meaux said...

Wow – definitely a handful! I really should revert to Itty Bitty….my a** would be a bit smaller! Thanks for the drawing!

May 18, 2008 09:45 AM
michelle said...

Itty Bitty – so that i can have all of the flavours…

Kim said...

Itty-bitty…that way I won’t feel guilty about having one, two or even three throughout the day :) Thank you for this awesome blog…you are my cupcake inspiration!

May 18, 2008 02:20 PM
Judy said...

Itty Bitty so I can pop a couple and not feel too guilty!

May 18, 2008 02:45 PM
hali said...

That would be letter D! You can never have too much cupcake!!!

May 18, 2008 03:40 PM
tanalicious said...

definitely bite size. pop them in and eat twice as many, without feeling bad!

May 18, 2008 03:42 PM

I’d say enough for two so my honey and I can dig in and enjoy it together! Thanks for the opportunity to win either an amazing book or a fabulous t-shirt!

Adrienne said...

do they make a dd-cup for those friends out there who are just over-endowed?

May 18, 2008 07:32 PM
Suzyhomemaker said...

Why choose when you can eat them all? :)

If I have to choose I would be B, bigger than bite sized, but just enough for me and since I always make more than one, everyone can have their own :)

May 18, 2008 07:43 PM
Courtney said...

I’m “enough for two” so I can share with my honey! :)
Thanks for a wonderful place to get great ideas!!!

May 18, 2008 08:40 PM
Allison said...

I’m a fan of the handful size because there are fewer for me to fill and frost. That way I can spend a little more time decorating each one.

May 18, 2008 08:48 PM
Code Name... Mom said...

I started out really liking itty bitty… but after having children… now it’s enough for two!

Great contest… LOVE your cupcakes!

i am a handful kind a girl. standard size works for me. :O)

May 18, 2008 09:16 PM
KMT said...

My cup size for cupcakes? Hmmm, D -enough for two.

May 18, 2008 09:32 PM
Jessica said...

Definitely the handful! Although, if I was really being honest I’d say enough for two.

May 18, 2008 09:41 PM
argylemoose said...

Yummy! I wish that I could have all 4. I guess that I will choose the handful, because some say anymore is just a waste.

May 18, 2008 09:56 PM
Linda said...

“D” will be my answer. It’s always good to share.

May 18, 2008 10:27 PM
Dawn said...

I’d say I’m definitely a bite-sized gal. Thanks for all the great ideas on your blog!!

May 18, 2008 10:39 PM

The standard size is just right for me. Guess I’m a bit of a traditionalist. I’d love to win that cookbook. I’m sure it would give me tons of inspiration and ideas.

May 18, 2008 10:41 PM
Christy said...

Since I’m pregnant with our third child, I would definitely say “D”, enough for two. Thanks!

May 18, 2008 10:46 PM
Tami said...

handful, but i will never refuse the others!

May 18, 2008 10:52 PM
shirsten said...

B or A, so that I ca try many different flavors in one sitting!

May 18, 2008 10:59 PM
Susan said...

Oh, the bigger the better. When it comes to cupcakes, I’m definitely a D, especially when they’re so delicious!

May 18, 2008 11:13 PM
Karin said...

I like it handful , so you can get lost in different sensations until the last bite.
I’m finally in the cupcake craze, and I owe it your creativity. Thanks


May 18, 2008 11:29 PM
MB said...

Definitely a C!!! I love your blog!

May 18, 2008 11:51 PM

Cup size? As in….X___x *Silence* …nevermind >.<

Bite sized! xD

thank you =3

Katherine said...

I think itty-bitty is the best for me but I usually make the bite-sized for the family. I especially like to pile on the icing so the cupcakes look much larger than they really are.

May 19, 2008 01:05 AM
AliciaSharp said...

I say a handfull! Love me some cupcakes. Thanks for the giveaway!!

Ummm, yes, a handful.

There’s a whole lot of cuteness going on in this blog!

Hendry Happenings said...

I am a lover of bite sized. The kids can finish their and I don’t end up eating it!

May 19, 2008 01:30 AM
Torte Dolci said...

The size really depends on the day. Typically a handful is perfect but on a rough day I go for the “enough for two” size. My husband says that anything more than a mouthful is a waste!

May 19, 2008 01:34 AM
Hillary said...

A handful…although if I can get a standard size of several different flavors I’m happy with that too!

May 19, 2008 01:40 AM
Alexa said...

C-Handful! I love cupcakes, and I don’t want to have to share!

May 19, 2008 01:45 AM
dorothy said...

Bite sized. Bite sized? Really? Come on now, you’re making us B-cup gals feel bad :)

May 19, 2008 02:07 AM
jeannie crockett said...

Oh, I like the little tiny ones! Just a bite or two—and of course, they are so much fun to decorate.

May 19, 2008 02:29 AM
jamie b said...

I think the handful is my size :) Maybe two hands!

May 19, 2008 02:49 AM
jilldaisbrenne said...

I’d say a C… a nice size handful! Love your site!

May 19, 2008 03:21 AM
Callie said...

Yum! A handful! Or maybe two! I can’t say no to a good cupcake!

May 19, 2008 04:12 AM
Victor said...

The itty bitty ones would perfect for me to experiment with my cheesecake-buttercup recipe.

May 19, 2008 05:19 AM
Anonymous said...

So hard to decide. Itty-bitty on a health conscious day, bite size on a baking day, handful in the first trimester, and enough for two in the third trimester…Needless to say I am expecting and cupcakes never disappoint! :-)

May 19, 2008 05:29 AM
Holly said...

Definitely a “D”–enough for two!! When it comes to cupcakes, I want as much as possible. Actually, a cupcake big enough for two would be just the right size for dinner! or

May 19, 2008 05:55 AM
JuneJ said...

Bite sized sounds good to me!

May 19, 2008 07:55 AM
JoyaDeeW said...

I’m a handful because bite size just isn’t big enough!

May 19, 2008 08:59 AM
Holly said...

Definitely a bite size! Love your blog!! See the cupcake pops I made!!! Thank you for such yummy ideas!

May 19, 2008 09:32 AM
Heidi said...

Enough for two, of course! (But who says I’m gonna share??!!) ;-)

May 19, 2008 12:06 PM

Handful is awesome:)

May 19, 2008 12:15 PM

Bite Size for me…I can’t believe there are 770 comments here!

May 19, 2008 01:14 PM
Jeanmarie said...

In life, I am definitely a Handful, but in Cupcake World, I am totally Standard…..
Thanks for the chance to win – just found your blog today and read the entire archive before breakfast, bought everything I need for cupcake pops before lunch – let’s see if I can make them before dinner!

May 19, 2008 01:15 PM
julie said...

May 19, 2008 01:33 PM
Shawn said...

i think i opt for B…the standard size. just enough to satisfy but brings you back for more…later!

May 19, 2008 01:36 PM
Kristen said...

my comment didn’t show up….size B for me

May 19, 2008 01:38 PM
taralynn819 said...

B – Bite Size. I’ll freeze the rest of the batter to bake some more fresh on another day!

May 19, 2008 01:52 PM
shawn &amp; bekah said...

I’d have to say I’m an itty-bitty, cause they’re just so dang cute, and I can eat more that way, without feeling like I’ve eaten a lot. :)

May 19, 2008 02:03 PM
Ashley said...

this double D picks D!!

is it me or does everyone that has

May 19, 2008 02:25 PM
Jessica said...

I choose “C” because I’ve always heard more than a handful is a waste. ;)

May 19, 2008 03:14 PM
Jess said...

I like bite-sized, so you can go back for seconds with no guilt :)

May 19, 2008 03:16 PM
nancy said...

I’d have to say that I’m a handful kind of cupcake person! Those are about perfect, although some cupcakes deserve the F cup!

May 19, 2008 03:22 PM
missabba said...

Definitely A – Bite Sized. Everyone loves cute mini things, especially cupcakes! :D

May 19, 2008 03:34 PM
lori said...

What a cute contest! I’ll vote for the B, it’s just the right size.

The Jackson Family said...

I love the bite size, i feel better if I have more than one, cause you know i will:)! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway!

May 19, 2008 05:46 PM
Sarah Moske said...

Bite sized is the perfect size!

May 19, 2008 06:02 PM
linda said...

The perfect size…a handful of course!

May 19, 2008 06:14 PM
Stephanie @ Figments said...

Are we talking about cupcakes here?? Well then…plenty for two! That book is great – wish I had it for my daughter’s party. I stuck to the basic cupcake with sprinkles.

May 19, 2008 06:15 PM
The Roberts Family said...

Let’s just say at one time or another I’ve been all 4. I’m going to put a different spin on things. Before I got married I was a bite size but thought I was a handful. I got pregnant, started nursing and became enough for 2! Now after I’m done nursing I’m definantly itty-bitty. Today if there was a saggy I’d be that!

May 19, 2008 06:19 PM
Simply Unregiftable said...

The “handfull” is probably the size I use most often…but I like to experiment with all different sizes. Thanks for the “giveaway”.

May 19, 2008 06:27 PM
Paige said...

hmmmm… i would have to say handful, no wait, enough for two. Oh heck. It doesn’t matter a cupcakes a cupcake any size it’s good for the soul!

May 19, 2008 06:35 PM
Carrie Ann said...

I am SO an A cup…it matches my true cup size but it just the opposite of my personality size. Plus, what’s cuter than eating a tiny cake besides baby chicks and kittens and puppies? Nothing!
