Sophie LaMontagne and Katherine Kallinis, the founding sisters of Georgetown Cupcake and stars of the TLC series DC Cupcakes, have discovered that these tiny treats can offer a lighthearted glimpse into personality type. Check out what your favorite says about you.

Vanilla Squared

Your personality: Traditional
The analysis: “This cupcake is for those who want something sweet but don’t want to get too crazy,” Sophie says. (If you choose chocolate frosting, you’re more open to risk taking.)

Chocolate Squared

Your personality: Intense
The analysis: “This is for people who are serious and focused,” Katherine says. “The double-chocolate combo is usually preferred by deep thinkers.” (Vanilla frosting lovers are slightly less intense.)


Your personality: Practical
The analysis: “A carrot cake lover makes decisions from a commonsense standpoint,” Sophie says. “Here you’re getting vegetables with your treat.”

Peanut Butter Fudge

Your personality: Adventurous
The analysis: “Choosing a rich, messy, over-the-top flavor shows you jump into new activities feetfirst,” Sophie says. “There’s no hesitation or worrying.”

Lemon Berry

Your personality: Spunky
The analysis: “We’ve found that people drawn to bright frostings and flavors tend to embrace life in the most colorful way,” says Katherine. “They’re always fun to be around.”

Red Velvet

Your personality: Romantic
The analysis: “This is the first choice for anyone in a lovey-dovey mood,” says Katherine. “From the deep red hue to the little heart on top, it’s the one you buy to share with a special someone.”


Your personality: Ambitious
The analysis: “A lot of successful businessmen and -women get the mocha,” Katherine says. The lure of caffeine certainly speaks to a go-getter type.

Salted Caramel

Your personality: Impulsive
The analysis: Torn between salty and sweet? “People will debate, then all of a sudden just go for it,” Katherine explains.


Your personality: Outgoing
The analysis: “Coconut’s definitely for extroverts,” Sophie says. “Probably because it’s such a strong, fun, and festive flavor.”
