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.

Spinach Cake

Can you keep a secret? This green dream of a cake doesn’t get its color from artificial dye— it’s all from spinach! Mom! What’s for Dinner? puts a spin on a classic Turkish dessert to give you a cake that’s packed with spinach but has none of the veggie flavor. It’s perfect for a birthday kid who loves Popeye, vibrant hues, or even Saint Patrick’s Day. Get the recipe here.
