Here’s something to celebrate: we’ve searched the web for birthday cakes that are as tasty as they are healthy and come up with a confection collection you’ll love. Gluten free? Check. Dye-free? Check. Vegan? You got it. You’ll even find options that sneak in veggie ingredients. (Did somebody say Spinach Cake?) Click through the slideshow below to get the party started.

New Fashioned Yellow Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

They might taste like they came from a boxed yellow cake mix, but these festive cupcakes from Oatmeal with a Fork are in a whole other cake category. They sport cannellini beans, honey, coconut flour (among other things) and a delish frosting made from avocado, maple syrup, and cocoa powder. Get the recipe here.
