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.

Flourless Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Cake

We’ve got to give major props to this cake from Chelsea’s Messy Apron. Not only does it showcase our fave fall flavors in a healthy way, but it’s also made in one bowl. That means less cleanup, more birthday party! Get the recipe here.
