Here's the Perfect Birthday Cake for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

A birthday is hardly complete without the right cake, and a birthday cake should reflect your tastes as well as your personality.

Which cake is just right for you? Scroll down to your zodiac sign to find out.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Cheesecake

Ariens are known for their fearlessness and knack for making audacious choices, so it follows that they'd pick a cake that's hardly a cake at all. Rather than a floury cake, they'll opt for something rich and creamy, and often topped with decadent flavors. A cheesecake birthday is certainly a bold choice.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Marble

Given the choice, Taureans will always go for the most luxurious option. They prefer fine, elegant things, liked a marbled cake. Even the word "marble" sounds indulgent and expensive, and the textured appearance of the cake especially appeals to their exceptional senses.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

Geminis can find it difficult to make decisions, changing their mind often, so their birthday cake selection should be the best of both worlds. A mint chocolate chip ice cream cake definitely fits the bill. It's sweet but refined. It's cake, but it's also ice cream. Geminis hate choosing, and with this cake, they don't have to.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Nutella

Cancerians are complicated, feeling their emotions strongly but not always revealing them to the outside world. Getting to know Cancer's true feelings can be like cracking the shell of a nut. That's why Nutella, the delicious combination of chocolate and hazelnut, particularly appeals to them.

Leos love to be the life of the party, and that's never truer than on their birthday. They want a cake that's fun, vibrant and accessible to everyone, which is why they love funfetti. Its eye-catching color makes it stand out in a crowd. Everyone will want a slice.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): Yellow

Virgos tend not to call too much attention to themselves, and they're completely satisfied with a cake that tastes way better than it looks. While their simple yellow cake of choice won't necessarily make everyone snap photos to post on the Instagram pages, it'll satisfy everyone's taste buds and fill their tummies. As long as the job is done, Virgo will be happy.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Devil's Food

Librans are born people-pleasers, so they'll want a cake that everyone will write home about. An ultra-sweet, ultra-rich devil's food cake will do just the trick. Built up with layer upon layer of dense chocolate, it's sinfully good—and it's so luscious there will always be enough for everyone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Lemon

Scorpios are a charismatic yet mysterious bunch, and they'll pick a birthday cake that's as unexpected as it is delicious. In picking a cake, lemon may not be the first flavor that pops into your mind, but that's what makes it so special. It's unconventional, and as sweet as it is tangy. Why be predictable when you can be anything but?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Red Velvet

Sagittarians are the optimistic adventurers of the zodiac, so they're prone to picking something vibrant and unusual for their birthdays, like a red velvet cake. They want to push everyone else out of their comfort zones as well and get them to take on new experiences.

Capricorns are traditionalists who stick to what they know, and they definitely know chocolate. It's a classic flavor that they can trust and rely upon to satisfy pretty much everyone. Capricorns take pride in not cutting corners and a job well done. Chocolate cake can do just that.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Carrot Cake

Aquarians are completely original and like to march to the beat of their own drum, so they'll pick a scrumptious carrot cake over the predictable chocolate or vanilla every time. They're extremely open-minded and welcoming to new tastes, so they know just how magical a nutty carrot cake with cream cheese frosting can be. Others may not be convinced it's the perfect cake until they take a bite themselves.

Artistic Pisceans want a birthday cake that reflects their creative sensibilities, so they'll always opt for a lively, colorful cake. A neon, layered cake demonstrates their big imaginations and spark for life—plus lots of layers means there will be plenty of cake to go around.
