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.
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.
