    What's the best way of eating a cupcake without getting frosting all over your face?

    The frosting especially loves getting on my nose......

    Cut the cupcake into 3 or 4 pieces, then eat it.  Or take small bites off the side and top, might work .

    Rather than the best way... If you mean the correct way of eating a cup cake....

    Proper etiquette suggests the cake should be placed upon a small tea plate and eaten with a dessert fork and knife while seated at table.

    Merlin is obviously posh !!
    just take off the paper case  and go for it ,but make sure you have a napkin to wipe away any excess frosting  OR you could do what my grandaughters do....lick the frosting off before you start on the cake .

    I would cut it in two horizontally - reducing it's height should vastly reduce the odds of your frosting/nasal issue. You can then also enjoy the delayed gratification of eating the bottom half first  before savouring the delicious mostly frosting top-half, at least that's what i'd do with all but the tiniest of cupcakes - not that i indulge that often mind you.

    Don't frost it.  Eating a cupcake is like eating barbque ribs.  You're gonna get some on you.  Like loveslove says, have a napkin at the ready.

    I always eat the bottom off the cupcake first and finish with the top and frosting.  The frosting is the BEST part and must be eaten last!!
