What the Way You Eat a Cupcake Reveals About Your Personality

Everybody needs a friend like the "equal parts cake and frosting" person.

Everybody needs a friend like the "equal parts cake and frosting" person.

If you've ever sat through an office birthday party — or really any party, ever — you may have noticed that when it comes to eating a cupcake, everybody has their quirks. Maybe it has something to do with navigating the often-awkward frosting-to-cake ratio that makes you take every bite like you're a dog trying to pick up a tennis ball with his mouth, but everyone has their own strategy.
It turns out they all fall into five key categories, according to Juliet A. Boghossian, behavioral food expert and founder of Food-ology, You are How you Eat®. After studying and interviewing countless people over the years, Boghossian realized that people who fall into each category tend to share certain personality traits. 

See how spot-on they are for you and your squad — at the very least, it'll keep the small talk going after you've covered the weather, weekend plans, and Westworld at your boss's birthday party.

If You Eat the Frosting First, Then Cake

You took those "live every day like it's your last" high school graduation mottos pretty seriously, didn't you? You're not about saving the best for last when you can have it right this second. People who live life frosting-first tend to be impulsive, outgoing and thrill-seeking, Boghossian says. So if there's a party, you better believe you're first on everyone's invite lists.

If You Make a Cupcake Sandwich

You could be a huge 30 Rock fan — or connoisseur of internet hacks — but either way, Liz Lemon's your spirit animal. You tend to be creative and resourceful, and you don't care what other people think, even if they try to argue that tearing the bottom off of a cupcake and placing it on top of the frosting turns it into a whoopie pie. Whoop it up, haters. You're too busy enjoying dessert to be bothered.

If You Scrape Off the Frosting Before Eating It

When everybody else is still wiping the sleep from their eyes, you've probably run three miles and made a fresh green juice. Or, OK, you jogged and thought about green juice, then opted for a latte instead. Many people who scrape off the frosting due so for health reasons, Boghossian has found, and they seek substance in all areas of life — be it avoiding empty calories or small talk.

If You Eat It With a Fork and Knife

Do you also eat everything with your pinky up? Kidding, though some may say you've got a proper, Kate Middleton-ish vibe, with those eating habits. (No word on whether the Duchess of Cambridge eats that way, but you've got to admit, it's a regal style.) You're practical — no mess on your face! — organized, and confident.

If You Eat the Cake First, Frosting Last

Like Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in 22 Jump Street, you're all about that work-hard, play-hard life (the mentality, not the drug, of course). You're disciplined enough to save the best for last, appreciating delayed gratification over the rush of love at first bite.
