What Your Favorite Cake Flavor Says About You

favorite cake

Have you ever lain awake in bed at night wondering about the deep mysteries of the universe? What is the meaning of life? Are we really alone in the universe? And why on earth do we celebrate all sorts of occasions with cake as the dessert of choice? Well, we can help answer the last question: it’s partially because cakes were seen as special when they were expensive to make and were sort of befitting of royalty or a god. Also because cake is delicious, duh.

More than likely, you’ve probably indulged in cake for your birthday, a wedding, or a special occasion at the office. And like with everything, we all have our favorites. Some people like vanilla. Others like chocolate. Still others enjoy something completely different like carrot cake. But did you know that these preferences can shed light on the very core of your character?

Find out what your favorite cake flavor says about your personality:

Vanilla Sponge or Yellow Cake

Boring? Plain Jane? Hardly. You’re an idealistic soul who has high expectations set for yourself. People wind up underestimating you until you show your true colors, and then they are blown away by your personality. You’re the kind of person who can tell when your friend is having a bad day and give them the perfect gift on a whim.


Love chocolate? Well, then, everyone loves YOU! Your enthusiasm, cheer, and charisma all charm just about every person around you. You’re good at handling other people’s problems. That’s because you’re comforting, understanding, and compassionate – a true friend to all!


Favoring the silky smoothness of a creamy cheesecake means one thing, darling: you’ve got a flair for the dramatic. There’s always something going on in your life. You tend to leave everyone sitting on the edge of their seats when you recount your latest crazy dream or tell a scary ghost story. But hey, you’re enthusiastic and love to put on a good show, and people just love that about you!

Carrot Cake

Carrot’s a vegetable, so a slice of carrot cake counts as a serving of vegetables, right? If this flavor is your favorite, well, then you tend to be a grounded individual who has pretty impressive self-control. You think before you leap and probably overanalyze everything, but that just means you make good choices most of the time.

Red Velvet Cake

What’s red, white, and mysterious all over? You, if you love red velvet cake. You’re an intriguing individual who is usually misunderstood at first. You may appear serious at first, but once people get to know you, they’ll discover they’ve come across a quirky, sassy, and romantic dreamer.

Coffee Cake

A coffee cake lover is someone to admire. They are independent, focused on their future goals, and don’t let anyone else tell them how to live their lives. If you’re one of these ambitious souls, you’re energetic, lively, and not afraid of challenges. Go, you!

Strawberry Shortcake

Is this your favorite cake flavor? Then you probably need to be a little easier on yourself. You’re probably introverted or shy and take a while to warm up to others. You’re self-critical by nature, but you’re loyal and kind toward those you love.

Lemon Cake

Do you always make a beeline for the lemon cake? More than likely, you’re a playful extrovert who enjoys keeping the people in your life on their toes. You say what’s on your mind and you don’t really have much of a filter. So while your friends are grateful when you tell them they have some broccoli stuck in between their teeth after a meal, they might be happier if you don’t keep saying how much you can’t stand their guilty pleasure, The Bachelor.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Oh, you sweet thing, you. A person with a penchant for pineapple upside down cake is a sentimental soul. You’re traditional and very comforting to those around you. You also have a tendency to drag out your college yearbooks and relive karaoke nights or the time you and your roommate tried seeing if you could fit inside your dorm’s dryer.

Confetti Cake

No matter how many times your parents insist that your secondary moniker is Marie or Stephen, your true middle name is Party. That’s because you’re a confetti cake fan, you little ball of sunshine! You’re artistic and fun-loving in nature, and you secretly enjoy stealing the spotlight once in a while – mostly with you’re sweet dance moves.

Marble Cake

What can we say about the marble cake lover? Lots of good things, actually. You’re a clever, inventive person who’s always looking for ways to make life better for you and those around you. “Normal” isn’t really in your vocabulary, and even though you tend to be indecisive, you like to push the envelope every once in a while!

Rainbow Layered Cake

If you love your cake to come in all the colors of the rainbow, then you’re more than likely an extrovert with an awesomely eccentric style. When they first meet you, others may think you’re a bit quiet, but once they get to know you, well… they know that isn’t the case!

Coconut Cake

If coconut is your jam, then you’re a romantic individual. You have the tendency to tear up when watching sentimental tearjerkers on the Hallmark Channel and think of little ways to show the people in your life you love them. But if someone says anything bad about anything you like, watch out – you’re not afraid to go on the offense and give your opinion!
