American Sign Language:  "cupcake"

There are lots of opinions regarding the sign for "cupcake."
I'll show you what I use. Plus I'll show you a couple of the main versions you might see out there.

CUPCAKE: Cake, muffin, pastry...
I tend to use this version to mean "muffin," "cupcake," or small pastries.
The sign uses a "double movement."


CUPCAKE:  "hybrid version"
Some people spell "cup" then sign cake. Or they sign cup and spell cake.
