What Type of Cupcake Are You?


Mmmm, delicious cupcakes

Are you a sensuous red velvet or a social coffee cupcake?

~~Your birth date will reveal the answer.~~


Please note that this is my interpretation of the zodiac and the personality behind cupcakes. My disclaimer is as follows: this is for entertainment purposes only, even though you will probably find it extremely accurate.

Heads Up: Last year my Book Genre Zodiac confused a few people. So, let me be clear. This is not what cupcake you are, eat, or bake but what your cupcake personality is.

Side note: The cupcakes I chose to feature are from the “Most Popular” cupcake lists I found on the net.


December 23 – January 20: Vanilla Cupcake

The most reliable cupcake, it’s sure to turn out wonderful. Its understated presence persevered throughout time becoming a standard go-to-flavor. Its seemingly “plain” existence has exotic undertones from one of the most expensive spices.

January 21 – February 19: Banana Cupcake

Warm and comforting, banana cupcakes take us to back to our childhood. They are soft, moist, and full of fruity goodness. When topped with honey-cinnamon frosting they are a touch unpredictable.

February 20 – March 20: Red Velvet Cupcake

This intriguing cupcake attracts people with its novel red coloring. Not vanilla, not chocolate, this cupcake’s flavor falls in-between, pleasing most everyone. The sensuous, creamy cream cheese frosting gives this cupcake its sweet, sensitive notes.

March 21 – April 20: Lemon Cupcake

A fresh zingy cupcake, the flavor is bold and energetic. An eye-opener for the adventurous. Softened with a little sugar the lemon cupcake will brighten your day.

April 21 – May 21: Pumpkin Cupcake

Pumpkin spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and allspice reminds us of holidays and family time. They never fail to please and demand placement in the center of the dessert table.

May 22 – June 21: Peanut Butter Cupcake

A happy cupcake made with peanut butter. They keep us feeling youthful with their playful flavor. Topped with chocolate frosting they are irresistible.

June 22 – July 22: Strawberries and Cream Cheese Cupcake

A seemingly delicate white cupcake filled with hidden strawberries and a sweet cream cheese center. This cupcake loves to be part of romantic encounters.

July 23 – August 21: German Chocolate Cupcake

This standout cupcake grabs your attention with its semisweet chocolate flavor. It’s always topped with a generous portion of caramel frosting mixed with pecans and coconut to keep things interesting.

August 22 – September 23: Carrot Cupcake

These modest cupcakes are filled with vitamin-packed shredded carrots. They might be plain, modest, and easy-going or filled with creative, sometimes wild, ingredient like pineapple, raisins, coconuts, or pecans. Often topped perfectly with cream cheese frosting.

September 24 – October 23: Coffee Cupcake

A social cupcake good for most gatherings, these cupcakes have the deep-roasted coffee flavor. It might be laidback with a coffee cream cheese frosting, flirtatious with a brown sugar whipped frosting, or idealistic with a chocolate-coffee buttercream.

October 24 – November 22: Chocolate Cupcake

Though chocolate cupcakes are intense, they make everyone happy. Chocolate is an emotional flavor but mellows with the addition of milk and sweetens with sugar.

November 23 – December 22: Chai Latte Cupcakes

This fun cupcake gets noticed with its exotic spices. It’s an adventuresome flavor that makes you smile. Topped with a meringue buttercream it has a light, playful touch.

So, pretty spot on right?

  1. I don’t usually look at horoscopes and the zodiac. But I do agree with my Lemon Cupcake description. And with this terrific tasting cup o’ java, I do feel bold and energetic today.

    1. That’s because this one is so darn accurate. 😉

  2. Hey, did this show up in your readers?

  3. Fun! According to this I’m a coffee cupcake.

  4. Well, right or not. It’s sure making me crave a cupcake or two.

  5. Yes!! Peanut butter and chocolate. My favorite. And, yes, I am a happy little cupcake most of the time. 🙂

  6. I might not be into Chai Lattes, but I love the description of me.

    Now why do I suddenly crave cupcakes? 😀

  7. lemon cupcake – yep, spot on 🙂

  8. Why can’t I have the peanut butter cupcakes? Bummer…

    1. You can have anyone you want. 😉

  9. Well this is fun … I’m the Lemon Cupcake, and I’d say you have to be a little adventurous to wade into the indie-publishing waters, so the description works for me!

    If you’re serving, too, send a couple my way through the usb cable please?

  10. I am a coffee cupcake. I knew it when I read the title of your post!

  11. Hmm – lemon is my favorite, now that I think about it.

  12. I like this idea! I’m a coffee cupcake (Yes!!) It suits me perfect.

  13. I’m afraid the peanut butter one doesn’t apply to me. I’m not exactly full of energy anymore and I don’t like peanut butter that much either. 😛

  14. I’m a banana cupcake!

  15. Now I’m hungry and want a cupcake. I’m chocolate. Yummy. Oh! There’s chocolate in my desk. Cool!

  16. holy crap. I’m a banana cupcake and I LOVE BANANAS!!
    How could you have possibly known?!?!

  17. Now I am craving cupcakes and that is not a good thing since my husband and I both had our birthdays over the weekend and we had too many cakes. Yes, you are pretty spot on with your descrptions. I am vanilla (but I want to be peanut butter) maybe because I am craving that right now. Fun post.

  18. By your calculations, I’m a vanilla, which is actually pretty close.

  19. Oh, darn. I wanted to be red velvet but it turns out I’m lemon. That’s okay – I do love lemon! 🙂

  20. I’m changing my birthday. I’d much rather be Chocolate and PB than Carrots.

    1. But I bet your one of the wild carrot cupcakes with raisins!

  21. I’m a coffee cupcake. And YES, I would LOVE a cupcake now. I even like saying cupcake. LOL

  22. I am a chocolate cupcake – and it SO fits! This stuff is fun …but then, I’m a Scorpio aka Chocolate Cupcake, and we love astrology and all the mysterious stuff of life.

  23. Hi Holly .. I’m a vanilla one .. I don’t think I’m understated though .. but am reliable – that’s been proved in the last five years with my Ma … the plainness has gone but evolving out are the creative mixes of life ..

    Love these – fun – cheers Hilary

  24. I’m a coffee and, yeah, this cupcake horoscope thing is pretty darn bang on! So much fun!
    By the way, thanks for dropping by my blog and especially thanks for the follow, Holly. I am happy to follow you, too. Especially since cupcakes are involved…

  25. Please lead me to the cupcake bar! I’m suddenly very hungry for one. 🙂

    1. I like the idea of a cupcake bar.

  26. Yum! I’m a German Chocolate – and that sounds about right!! 🙂

  27. If anything I’d hope I’m a Belgian chocolate cupcake rather than a German chocolate one, but I’m fear I wouldn’t make a good cupcake. Maybe another kind of dessert?

    Now you’ve done it … you have me thinking about desserts before 10am! Now I’ll need to have chocolate for breakfast! 😉

  28. I may be a vanilla cupcake, but all the better to try on many wondrous types of frosting, I say!

  29. Yummmmmm pumpkin cupcakes…. I can certainly live with that. LOL

    These are such fun and imaginative. Can’t believe I hadn’t noticed them before…
