August is not only my birthday month but it’s also the anniversary of my blog. It’s going to be 5 years old this year!
They grow up so fast :'(
So it’s time to celebrate and what better way to celebrate than with some cake?
I’ve put together 28 (the age I’m turning this month :O) of the most beautiful, delicious-sounding vegan birthday cakes recipes I could find, from some of my favourite vegan blogs.
These beautiful cakes are all vegan (and scroll to the bottom for a few gluten-free options too) and perfect for topping with candles.
A classic vanilla birthday cake with cute sprinkles. Can’t go wrong with this!
This beautiful vegan chocolate cake with pink ombre icing effect reminds me of Neapolitan ice cream. It looks so pretty and the cake inside sounds incredible.

And this cake provides a very delicious way to do it.
