Do these sentences mean the same thing?

A. You ate your cake. Don't eat mine, too.

B. You ate your cake. Don't eat mine too.

Thanks!

    A is very unusual.  Unless you are emphasizing "too", there should be no comma.  Emphasizing "too" is very unusual and most likely unnatural in most situations. 

    (the comma indicates a pause.  Don't eat mine...too.)

    B is natural and common.

    They mean the same thing, the comma in the first is not required.

    They mean the same thing but the comma in A is unnecessary. Did you see it printed in a book?  It looks very old-fashioned.  It certainly isn't essential.  If you're being taught that it is correct (in a case like that), I'd ignore that advice.  All it does is add an unnecessary pause when reading, which slows down the reader, which to me is annoying.

    The comma slows the first one down, so it's less rushed/forceful than B.
