National Cupcake Day Cake Poll and Giveaway

How do you eat yours?

Let me be the first to wish you a very happy National Cupcake Day. Yes, you heard me correctly. Today (December 15) is National Cupcake Day.

And in honor of this momentous day, I'd like to bring back a question I asked a long while back, that I'd love to ask again--you know, in case old readers' preferences have changed, or in case there are new readers who didn't weigh in the last time!

The question is a most important one: how do you eat a cupcake? 

Do you eat it with a knife and fork, pinkies out?
Do you tear it in half and discard the bottom so as to increase the frosting-to-cake ratio?
Do you invert it, sandwich-style, to keep your fingers free of frosting?
Do you eat yours with a spoon, served in a dish of milk?
...Or do you just dig in?


I can't wait to hear your responses. Oh, and to make it slightly more fun, I'm going to choose one commenter at random and send them a copy of  Cupcakes: More Than 50 Fun Recipes for Creative Cakes! This is an adorable book wherein you'll find recipes and decorating tutorials such as:

Cupcakes Cupcakes Cupcakes

Awesome! So, once again, to enter to win the book, just leave a comment saying how YOU eat a cupcake! I'll close the poll and choose a winner one week from today, on December 23rd at 5pm PST.

wow. I had no idea there were so many ways to eat a cupcake. Me? shove it in your mouth all at once and get as much frosting on your face as possible :) Thank you Cakespy!

I'm a slice-and-sandwich cupcake eater. I know, cuppie. I'm a monster.

I eat cut it in half. Eat each half

I lick off the icing, then eat the cake.

Bottom first and then the top-laden frosting.

I like to just dig in!

First, I tear off the bottom half of the cake piece by piece. Then I savor each bite of the cupcake which now is only a little cake & loads of frosting! Yum!

No special way... I just bite right into it!!!

Of course rip it in half and make a sandwich!! I may lose some crumbs along the way, and the frosting may leak out - but it is the only way to go and i consider the loss of morsels well spent. Like a sir.

Peel and bite! Usually top first!
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterTK
I peel back the wrapper and eat it with a tiny fork. I've always been trying to eat it sans cutlery and just take a bite out of the cupcake but I just can't bring myself to do it. No idea why...
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda
I just peel off the paper and dig in!
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterCookie
i just dig in. i try to get the whole length of the cupcake in each bite. sometimes it involves a little tilting of the head to get the very bottom and the frosting in the same bite.
December 16 | Unregistered Commenterjac
I've eaten my cupcake almost every way possible. Really depends on the size of the cupcake, what it's served in, where I'm eating it, and what I have available to eat it with.
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterGina
I always rip off and eat the bottom first, and then the top after! I love saving the best for last! Mmm icing...
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca N
I make a cupcake sandwich......twist off the bottom and then put it on top so the icing is in the middle
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterEvelyn R
I used to eat all of the frosting off first, but now I eat cupcakes with a fork. I try to take relatively small bites to savor it. Thanks for the giveaway!
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterSara H.
I usually tear off the bottom, stick it on top of the frosting, and eat it sandwich style! And until reading your post I totally thought I was the only one that did that! Yay! Other people are freaks too!
December 16 | Unregistered CommenterChristina
I eat the bottom first and then eat the remaining cake and frosting. Much better frosting to cake ration that way :)
December 17 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca
When there is a lot of frosting (>1cm thick), I'll make a top-down cut with a plastic knife through the center of the cupcake, then eat each half from the bottom up.
December 17 | Unregistered CommenterToni
io lascio a glassa x ultimo....desiderio! se non vinco il libro :( dove lo posso comprare????
December 17 | Unregistered Commenterflory
i cut the bottom off and make a little whoopie pie sandwich! :)
December 17 | Unregistered CommenterBianca
I eat a cupcake by starting with the icing and then chomping down to include the cake underneath...you need a little of both in each bite to make it scrumptious!!
December 17 | Unregistered CommenterMegan
From the bottom up, of course (after removing the wrapping). Can't start with the frosting! That's just silly!
December 17 | Unregistered CommenterSarah
I eat it from the bottom up so I can save the best part, the frosting, for last!
