It’s my birthday on Saturday! Happy birthday to me! I love celebrating my birthday. In fact, I typically celebrate it all month, with plans scattered each and every week with friends and family. This past week, aka “birthday week” has also been full of mini celebrations and excuses to pamper myself all in the name of my birthday! I don’t typically eat much cake during the year, but I insist upon it for my birthday. I eagerly look forward to a really delicious vegan birthday cake on my special day.
My husband surprised me with the most beautiful vegan birthday cake from Jamaica’s Cakes last year for my 40th and I have been waiting a whole year for the opportunity to order another cake for my birthday! I have been looking for inspiration and pondering what flavors and designs I should order, because dreaming up a cake is almost as much fun as eating it (almost!). Below are a few cakes that have caught my attention.
I am in love with this gorgeous cake from Emmy Lou’s Kitchen, which is perfect for any special occasion, but certainly fits the bill for my vegan birthday cake.
This simple, yet decadent chocolate cake from Minimalist Baker has me thinking I should go chocolate this year.
This rose cake from Petite Allergy Treats has convinced me that I definitely need frosting roses adorning this year’s vegan birthday cake!
I am not a coffee drinker but I love mocha flavored ice cream and cakes, so this beauty from Go Dairy Free just might do!
I admit to being jealous of those cute bundts from Nothing Bundt Cakes. Why don’t they offer a vegan option? This recipe from Bittersweet is picture perfect and sure to be delicious as it comes from the incomparable Hannah Kaminsky. I think I may need to have 2 vegan birthday cakes this year, and 1 will be a bundt!
There are always gifts on birthdays, so in celebration of mine, I want to give a gift away! I am creating a new freebie for my site and would love to hear what you’d like to see. Another recipe cookbooklet? A sample meal plan? Something else? Please tell me in the comments section below. I plan to have this new gift ready to share in September!
