What Desserts Say About You

A bit of fluff for a busy and dull Thursday.
If all of the desserts listed below were sitting in front of you, which would you choose? Pick your dessert, and then look in the extended entry to see what psychiatrists think about you.

1. Angel Food Cake
2. Brownies
3. Lemon Meringue
4. Vanilla Cake With Chocolate Icing
5. Strawberry Short Cake
6. Chocolate on Chocolate
7. Ice Cream
8. Carrot Cake

My choice, as well as the answers, are listed in the extended entry. Please let me know how accurate your choice was for describing you.

[Hattip: Mark of Knockin' On The Golden Door]

1. ANGEL FOOD CAKE -- Sweet, loving, cuddly. You love all warm and fuzzy items. A little nutty at times. Sometimes you need an ice cream cone at the end of the day. Others perceive you as being childlike and immature at times.

You are adventurous, love new ideas, and are a champion of underdogs and a slayer of dragons. When tempers flare up you whip out your saber. You are always the oddball with a unique sense of humor and direction. You tend to be very loyal.

Smooth, sexy, & articulate with your hands, you are an excellent after-dinner speaker and a good teacher. But don't try to walk and chew gum at the same time. A bit of a diva at times, but you have many friends.

Fun-loving, sassy, humorous, not very grounded in life; very indecisive and lack motivation. Everyone enjoys being around you, but you are a practical joker. Others should be cautious in making you mad. However, you are a friend for life.

Romantic, warm, loving. You care about other people, can be counted on in a pinch and expect the same in return. Intuitively keen. Can be very emotional.

Sexy; always ready to give and receive. Very creative, adventurous, ambitious, and passionate. You can appear to have a cold exterior but are warm on the inside. Not afraid to take chances. Will not settle for anything average in life. Love to laugh.

You like sports, whether it be baseball, football, basketball, or soccer. If you could, you would like to participate, but you enjoy watching sports. You don't like to give up the remote control. You tend to be self-centered and high maintenance.

You are a very fun loving person, who likes to laugh. You are fun to be with. People like to hang out with you. You are a very warm- hearted person and a little quirky at times. You have many loyal friends.

My pick, as always - chocolate on chocolate. On the rare occassion when I do indulge in sweets, they are my favorite flavor combination in cakes, cookies and desserts.

You caught me in Lemon mood. And it seems to fit. I picked 3. LEMON MERINGUE.

I picked number 8...carrot cake.

Posted by: Dazd at March 1, 2007 08:09 AM

Lemon Meringue, what can I say?

Posted by: Lemon Stand at March 1, 2007 08:32 AM

I'm chocolate on chocolate, or brownie. Kinda close. Except for being "an oddball."

That part's way off...

Posted by: That 1 Guy at March 1, 2007 08:33 AM

Okay, I picked four of the deserts.
brownie WITH ice cream
Chocolate on chocolate

Because, really, this sounded like a buffet, and I'd take some of everything that looked good.

Posted by: wRitErsbLock at March 1, 2007 08:39 AM

oh, and i thought they were pretty accurate. But I hate sports.

Posted by: wRitErsbLock at March 1, 2007 08:39 AM

I know what deserts say about me every time I look in the mirror. Time to join a gym before it reaches the critical stage.

Oh - Chocolate on chocolate, but you knew that!

Thanks for the linklove!

I did vanilla with chocolate icing. It wasn't me. I'm hungry now...

Posted by: Bou at March 1, 2007 09:00 AM

While a Lemon fan, not the meringue - that was my mood this morning. And kinda close - except for that whole Diva part. That was WAY off!!

I really am a chocolate on chocolate person.

Gooooo chocolate!

Posted by: Oorgo at March 1, 2007 05:59 PM

Although, DAMN brownies are good.

Posted by: Oorgo at March 1, 2007 06:00 PM

Chocolate on chocolate...yummy!! With brownies and strawberry shortcake a close 2nd.

Posted by: Cindy at March 1, 2007 06:11 PM

Mmm, brownies...and I guess 'flying off the handle' is the same thing as 'whipping out my saber'. But everything about the brownies is true. But chocolate on chocolate was my second favorite. How about chocolate on brownies...yeah, that'd work, too. :)

How did they leave cheesecake off this list?

Posted by: zonker at March 1, 2007 07:35 PM

z,they left out cheesecake because it was too milky or bland, and therefore nothing of substance to write a post or comment about.

Sorry, but I think it sorta fits you to a tee. Heh, heh, heh.

Posted by: michele at March 1, 2007 09:01 PM

I'm a strawberry shortcake person, to be honest. I'd like to think I'd go after the chocolate, but really, if all the dishes were out, I'd want strawberries AND I'd get the angel food cake in the process.

I'm not emotional. Dammit.

Posted by: RSM at March 1, 2007 09:56 PM

Brownies, but the analysis is WAY off. I'm a comfort junkie, I hate trying new things, I root for the favorite, I stay out of arguments, my sense of humor is classic MST3K, and I have no sense of direction whatsoever.

However, I do have a dragon head or two on my mantel, and I have links on my blog for people who stopped blogging 2 years ago.

At least they got the loyalty part right.

A) What Zonker said. It's a travesty, I tell ya. I mean, helloooo...Juniors!

B) I went for the carrot cake WITH the ice cream, so, it's boiled down to me being a Mets fan to the exclusion of any other sports team...I did used to want to be the first lady player on the Mets...almost never touch the remote, or watch TV for that extremely LOW maintenance...and all of number 8 is 100 true.

Posted by: Erica at March 2, 2007 08:42 AM

100 'percent' true, is what I was actually getting at. (d'oh!)

Posted by: Erica at March 2, 2007 08:43 AM

I was torn between brownies and carrot cake (yeah - I know.... but I am craving lots of interesting things right now.) And reading the descriptions - I am still torn. Huh. ;-)

Posted by: Richmond at March 2, 2007 12:03 PM

Carrot Cake. No hesitation.

Posted by: Ted at March 2, 2007 12:06 PM

Why is everybody always pickin' on me?


Posted by: Charlie Brown with a mullet at March 2, 2007 04:25 PM

Tiramisu! I don't care if it's not on the menu, it's my favorite!!

Fine. I'll settle for strawberry shortcake because it's 'comfort food' that reminds me of good times long past. But the vanilla cake w/ chocolate frosting personality probably fits me better. Just don't call me 'sassy' or you'll make me angry.

People don't like it when I get angry... ;)
