To dream of a cupcake represents feelings of liking yourself the way you are. Feeling encouraged to like yourself. Feeling that people have to like you. Your wish to make other people feel good about themselves. Wanting other people to feel good. Enjoying spending time with family.
Negatively, cupcakes may reflect unusual steps being taken to deceive others or do bad things so people will like you. Making choices you don’t like so other people will like you. Wanting other people to feel good about themselves before your own needs.
Example: A young man dreamed of being offered white cupcakes and refusing them. In waking life he had the opportunity to be honest about something he was lying about and make the person he was lying to like him again. He chose to take the opportunity because he hated the person.
