Cakes are great, sure. But you know what's even better? A whole personal-sized cake that you can eat with your hands — otherwise known as a cupcake. At their simplest, these fan-favorite desserts require little more than a base cake-and-frosting combo, but with a little dressing up, they can become extra special and even elegant with the use of fillings, intricate decorations and over-the-top flavor features.

When it comes to your cupcake cravings, how do you satisfy them? Tell us all about your cupcake preferences in the polls below.
