5 Amazing Vegan Birthday Cake Recipes For Your Kids

Vegan desserts are becoming increasingly popular, and vegan cakes are no exception. This means that a growing number of consumers are making the switch to vegan cakes, pastries, cupcakes, and biscuits, finding the health benefits to be both delicious and complete. They include no additional calories, sodium, or artificial flavours because they are 100% natural. Vegan cakes are available for purchase on the Internet and in many health and vegetarian stores that specialize in specialty foods like these.

A vegan cake is also suitable for you in other ways. There is evidence that a vegan cake includes more nutritional fiber than a non-vegan cake. Another crucial factor to remember is that these cakes are high in antioxidants.

They're also high in vitamins and minerals like potassium and calcium. Many vegan desserts also contain a significant amount of fiber and protein. All of this means that your diet will provide you with more nutrients, fewer calories, and more energy. A vegan cake has health benefits that go beyond merely eating better.

Many vegan dessert converts have discovered that they love eating them more frequently and are more willing to eat them regularly. Because of their popularity, vegan cakes are often just as good as, if not better than, regular cakes. It's simple to eat several at once because they're so filling. They're even easier to add to your diet without guilt because they don't contain preservatives, colours, or sweeteners. As you can see, you can eat as much cake as you want and remain healthy and satisfied!

Now I will share 5 amazing birthday cake recipes you can try on your kid's birthday!

Chocolate Vegan Birthday Cake

Chocolate Vegan Birthday Cake

This luscious Chocolate Cake recipe is not only delicious, but it's also vegan and sugar-free (with an unrefined sugar option also available). It's ideal for celebrations such as birthdays, parties, and holidays!

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 30 minutes | Servings: 10

Ingredients For The Cake

  • Whole wheat flour: 2 cups
  • Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Baking soda: 1 teaspoon
  • Sea salt: ½ teaspoon
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder: ½ cup
  • Date paste: 1 cup
  • Applesauce: ¾ cup
  • Plant milk: 1¼ cup
  • Vanilla: 2 teaspoons
  • Apple cider vinegar: 1 tablespoon

Ingredients For The Frosting

  • Cooked peeled sweet potato: 1 cup
  • Almond butter: ½ cup
  • Pitted Dates: ¾ cup
  • Plant milk: ¼ cup
  • Cocoa powder: ½ cup
  • Sea salt: ¼ teaspoon
  • Vanilla: 1 tablespoon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare the date paste.
  2. Date paste is made by blending 1 cup pitted dates with ¾ cup water in a blender or food processor until smooth. Please see the notes in the article above for more information. Set aside the date paste once it's done, as it'll be added to the wet components soon.
  3. Flour baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in a large mixing bowl. If you're not using date paste, here is the time to add the dried sugar.
  4.  In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together all wet ingredients–applesauce, plant milk, vanilla, vinegar, and date paste (if used).
  5. Next, combine the wet and dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.
  6. Bake the cake batter for 30-35 minutes at 350°F in a silicone baking pan (or line a conventional pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking). Two 8″ round cake pans can be made using this recipe.
  7. Because oven temperatures vary, remove the cake from the oven at about the 25-minute mark and check for doneness. To do so, insert a toothpick into the highest center point. The cake is made when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean; if not, return it to the oven for another 5-10 minutes.
  8. When the cake or cupcakes are done, remove them from the oven and lay them aside to cool.
  9. The heart cupcake pans are also fantastic if you like cupcakes.

Frosting

  1. Take the easy route and rapidly boil sweet potatoes by poking a few holes in them with a knife, putting them in a damp paper towel, and throwing them in the microwave for 5-6 minutes, depending on their size.
  2. In a blender or food processor, combine all the frosting ingredients, including the cooked sweet potato, and blend until smooth.
  3. Once the cake or cupcakes have cooled completely, ice them and serve!

Vanilla Vegan Birthday Cake

Vanilla Vegan Birthday Cake

It's light and fluffy, with a soft and moist crumb and a strong vanilla flavour. This cake will delight whether you dress it up with some beautiful buttercream work or keep it simple with a sprinkle of chocolate ganache.

This recipe is everything a vanilla cake should be, plus more! It's made even better by the fact that it's vegan. Vegan cakes are made different from their egg and dairy cousins, but the results are just as delicious!

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Baking Time: 38 minutes | Servings: 2 6″ cakes

Ingredients For One 8-inch cake or Two 6-inch cakes

  • Apple cider vinegar: 2 teaspoon
  • Plant milk: 1 cup + 2 tablespoons
  • All-purpose flour: ½ cups + 1 tablespoon
  • Granulated sugar: ¾ cups + 1 tablespoon
  • Baking powder: ½ teaspoon
  • Baking soda: ½ teaspoon
  • Salt: ¾ teaspoon
  • Oil: ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons
  • Vanilla extract: ½ tablespoon

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the baking pan with oil and then cover the bottom of the pan with a parchment paper circle.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the plant milk and vinegar and set aside to clabber for 5-10 minutes.
  3. In a second mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until foamy.
  4. Combine the oil and vanilla extract with the clabbered milk in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the wet ingredients until the batter is smooth.
  5. Pour the batter into the pan that has been prepared (or divide it in half if baking 2 cakes). Bake for 36-38 minutes for the 8″ cakes and 31-33 minutes for the 6″ cakes.
  6. When the edges of the cakes are golden and have been pushed away from the pan's sides, and a tester comes out clean or with one or two crumbs, the cakes are made.
  7. Remove from the oven and set aside for 10 minutes to cool. Then, using a wire cooling rack, carefully turn the pan over to catch the cake. Remove the pan from the oven, then peel the parchment paper away. Return the cake to the right side and cool completely on a cooling rack.
  8. Wrap the cooled cakes in plastic wrap and place them on a cake board. Place in the refrigerator or freeze in freezer-safe ziplock bags until ready to decorate.

Funfetti Vegan Birthday Cake

Funfetti Vegan Birthday Cake

Every occasion calls for a special Vegan Funfetti Cake, and it's only suitable to make one! This is one of the best eggless and dairy-free layer cakes you'll ever make, with three layers of sprinkle-filled vanilla cake topped with vegan buttercream.

Prep Time: 2 hours | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Servings: 18

Ingredients For The Funfetti Cake

  • Almond milk per cake layer: ¼ cup
  • Sugar per cake layer: 2 cups
  • Oil: 9 tablespoon
  • Vanilla bean paste: 3 teaspoons
  • Pastry flour per cake layer: ¼ cup
  • Baking powder per cake layer: ½ teaspoon
  • Rainbow sprinkles: ¼ cup per cake layer: ¾ cup

Ingredients For The Vanilla Buttercream Frosting:

  • Cold vegan butter: 2 cups
  • Cold vegan shortening: 1 cup
  • Powdered sugar: 3-4 cups
  • Vanilla bean paste/extract: 3 teaspoons

Method For Baking The Cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, to prevent the cake from sticking, line each 9-inch pan with parchment paper on the bottom and gently grease the sides.
  2. Make the funfetti cake batter next. Combine the wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl: almond milk, sugar, oil, and vanilla. To combine the ingredients, whisk them together. Then sift in the pastry flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt with a flour sifter. Whisk everything together until you have a nice cake batter.
  3. When the oven is warmed, add the rainbow sprinkles and stir them into the batter with a spatula very carefully. Overmixing will cause the colours to spread throughout the batter.
  4. Pour the cake batter into each cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the tops are browned, but the insides are still soft and fluffy. Insert a toothpick into the center of the cake to ensure no uncooked batter is left.
  5. Remove the cakes from the oven and run a knife around the outside to ensure they aren't sticking to the pan. Allow cooling for 5 minutes in the pan. Remove the cake from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool completely before icing. At this point, you can either leave the cake to cool at room temperature or cover it in plastic wrap and chill it for 1 to 48 hours. I suggest wrapping the cake with plastic wrap.

Method For Making The Vegan Buttercream Frosting

  1. Make the vegan icing after the cakes have cooled.
  2. Cream the cold vegan butter, cold shortening, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer on high speed. After the butter has been creamed, reduce the speed to low and gradually add the powdered sugar, 12 cups at a time.
  3. To avoid huge clumps appearing in the frosting, sift the powdered sugar before adding it. To make a sweeter frosting. Cover it and place it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to harden up the icing.

Method For The Frosting Layer Cake

  1. To begin, line a cake turntable with parchment paper and place the first vegan cake on top. Use a cake spatula to evenly spread about ⅓-½ cup vegan frosting on top. It's okay if some of the frostings drips down the sides of the cake. Then, on top of that, place the next layer of cake.
  2. Repeat until all three layers of cake have been piled and frosted. After that, apply a crumb coat of frosting. Apply a light coating of frosting to the sides of the cake, making sure to use it to fill in the gaps between the layers. Then smooth it out with a cake scraper. It's okay if this layer isn't perfect because its job is to protect the rest of the layer.
  3. Return the cake to the fridge after finishing the crumb coat and allowing it to sit for at least 30 minutes before applying the final layer of frosting. At this point, I like to put the remaining frosting in the fridge to stiffen up.
  4. Remove the layer cake and icing from the fridge after 30 minutes. Set aside a quarter cup of frosting to colour and pipe as a top border. Then frost the cake with the remaining icing. Even out the icing on the sides and top of the cake with a cake scraper.
  5. Take a handful of sprinkles and press them onto the sides of the cake once it has been frosted. Sprinkles can also be sprinkled on top. However, this is optional.
  6. Finally, combine the ¼ cup of frosting that was left aside with your preferred food colouring in a small bowl. Fill a piping bag halfway with the frosting and pipe a multicoloured border around the top of the cake.
  7. Return the cake to the refrigerator to harden up before serving. Enjoy by slicing into even slices.

Method For The Vegan Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. Bake for 22-24 minutes (for 6′′) or 27-30 minutes (for 8′′), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  2. Allow 10 minutes for the cakes to cool in the pan before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely before icing.

  5. Continue to beat in the vanilla and 2-4 tablespoons coconut cream or milk until the desired texture is achieved.
