23 Must-Try Vegan Birthday Cake Recipes

Vegan cooking/baking has come a long way in recent years.

In fact, I’ve tried plenty of vegan desserts that tasted just like the dairy-filled versions.

So why not try one of these vegan birthday cakes this year?

They taste just as good and, more importantly, everyone can enjoy a slice!

1. Vegan Funfetti Cake

This perfectly fluffy vegan and gluten-free funfetti birthday cake is totally drool-worthy!

And what better way to celebrate than sprinkles, right?

Between the fun colors, tender sponge, and buttery vanilla frosting, this is a modern twist on a birthday classic.

Your vegan friends and family will love it – and so will you!

2. Piñata Cake

Want to blow your party guests’ minds with a show-stopping vegan celebration cake?

Then you have to try this four-layer piñata cake recipe.

It doesn’t take any special skills. Just cut a hole in the middle of the two layers and fill it with candy.

Then, when you cut that first slice, you’ll see all those tasty treats spill out.

Just remember to get vegan candies too!

3. The Ultimate Vegan Chocolate Cake

This is my kind of birthday cake! It’s over-the-top-decadent, loaded with extras, and chocolatey to the max.

Trust me, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream come true! And yes, it’s totally vegan!

As with the recipe above, be sure to find vegan cookies, candies, and donuts. You can buy those ready-made to keep the prep time short.

From there, just add a layer of dairy-free chocolate buttercream to the outside and load it up with as many treats as you can fit!

4. Raspberry Coconut Birthday Celebration Cake

Here’s something I think you’ll really go nuts for. Coco-nuts, that is!

The sponge is super light and loaded with coconut. Plus, there’s fruit right in the batter, so you get pops of sweetness in every slice.

The bright frosting is a must, if you ask me. It’s so perfect for birthdays and has plenty of raspberry flavor too.

As for the decoration, keep it simple with Linzer cookies, candies, and sprinkles. Yum!

5. Vegan Vanilla Birthday Cake

When you’re feeding a crowd, vanilla is a safe choice. I mean, who doesn’t like vanilla cake with sweet vanilla frosting?

And this vegan recipe is about as tasty as it gets.

For kids, I usually leave the filling as just frosting. But feel free to add fruity jam to jazz it up!

6. Vegan Oreo Cookies and Cream Cake

Looking for a vegan cake that’s easy to make but looks like you spent all day in the kitchen? I’ve got just the thing!

This layered Oreo cookies and cream cake features fluffy vanilla sponge layers packed with chocolate cookies.

Then, everything’s topped with buttercream and luscious chocolate ganache. Altogether, it’s pretty much a party in your mouth! 

7. No-Bake Vegan Cheesecake

As a cheesecake-obsessed baker, it’s my go-to for most parties. So why not for birthdays?

And this no-bake vegan cheesecake is so easy, it’ll be ready in a flash. That way, you can spend more time getting everything else ready!

This recipe is for a basic cheesecake, and it’s insanely rich and creamy.

But feel free to make it your own! Add fruits, sprinkles, chocolate chips – anything vegan you can think of.

8. Lemon Blueberry Cake

Light, bright, and impossibly vibrant, does it get any better than lemon and blueberry?

This is the perfect cake for a summer birthday. And it’s best left ‘naked’ (without frosting on the outside), so decorating it is a breeze.

You’ll flavor the sponge with lots of lemon, and it’s in the frosting too. Then, layer some punchy blueberry filling in the middle and get your camera ready!

9. Vegan Biscoff Cake

If you’re a fan of Biscoff and chocolate, then this vegan cake will knock your socks off! 

It takes the classic Speculoos flavor and adds a delicious twist of chocolate. 

And you don’t even need a mixer to make it! Just stir the ingredients in one bowl, and voila!

So, grab your apron and get ready to bake this mouth-watering treat.

10. Vegan Cookie Dough Cake

Calling all cookie dough lovers! Get ready for the ultimate dessert experience with this vegan cookie dough cake. 

It’s decadent and delicious, and the cookie dough filling is a game-changer! Try it with vanilla or chocolate buttercream, and you might just swoon.

11. Banana Bread Birthday Cake

You have to try this banana bread birthday cake!

It’s a pinata cake filled with vegan sweets and chocolates, just like the one above. But it’s got that comforting banana bread taste we all love.

The cake is moist and fluffy, easy to make, and even gluten-free. 

It’s ideal for anyone looking for something a little different.

12. Vegan Hummingbird Cake

Are you ready for something truly decadent? Then let me introduce you to this incredible vegan hummingbird cake! 

It’s a fruity, nutty, and lightly spiced masterpiece, bursting with the flavors of banana, pineapple, and pecans. 

And let’s not forget about the silky, luscious cream cheese frosting. It’s simply amazing!

13. Vegan Ice Cream Cake

Here’s another terrific summer birthday cake. Only it’s a little more grown-up than Fudgie the Whale.

For one thing, the cake is deep, dark, and ultra-chocolatey. It’s not for anyone who doesn’t enjoy dark chocolate.

That said, the vegan vanilla ice cream does a great job of balancing the flavors.

Of course, you could use any ice cream you like! Raspberry or cherry would look incredible, as would pistachio or chocolate.

14. Vegan Red Velvet Cake

Did someone say vegan red velvet cake? Yes, please!

If you’re a fan of this Southern classic, you’ll be thrilled to hear that this recipe is 100% plant-based.

Oh, and no more beets to get that red hue. Instead, you’ll use natural food coloring. 

15. Vegan Black Forest Cake

Black forest cake always looks so elegant. But don’t be intimidated! Making it from scratch is actually pretty easy.

The chocolate cake calls for basic pantry staples and dairy-free milk. As for the cherry filling, it’s just a quick compote with cherries, sugar, and vanilla.

Finally, there’s a simple vanilla buttercream and vegan ganache.

Add some chocolate shavings and fresh cherries, and dig in!

16. The BEST Vegan Carrot Cake

I adore carrot cake. The taste, the texture, the sweet frosting – it’s all a winner.

And I agree with the title here because this one is the best vegan version I’ve tried.

It has orange zest in the sponge (my favorite!) and a dreamy caramel sauce to boot.

What more could you ask for?

17. Vegan Harry Potter Birthday Cake

Be still my millennial heart. If ever there was a birthday cake to please an entire generation, this is it!

And now it’s vegan!

Sweetened with applesauce and brown sugar, the cake is so rich and tender. There’s even coffee in the mix to boost that cocoa goodness. Yum!

18. Vegan Choc Butterscotch Celebration Cake

This vegan chocolate butterscotch celebration cake is what dessert dreams are made of! 

It has decadent layers of rich butterscotch icing that will make you drool. And don’t forget the vegan sprinkles on top for that extra pop of color and fun!

Whether you’re a long-time vegan or just looking to try something new, this cake is sure to impress.

19. Vegan Blackberry and Gin Cake

You had me at blackberries, but the gin? Oh, yes!

This pretty cake is dressed to impress and features fluffy vanilla sponge bursting with fresh blackberries. 

Better yet, each layer is infused with a sweet gin syrup and finished with swirled blackberry jam and buttercream frosting.

No matter the occasion, this cake is a guaranteed showstopper.

20. Coconut Vegan Birthday Cake

Celebrate your next occasion with this scrumptious coconut birthday cake.

It’s not easy finding a good vegan cake, but this recipe is a star! The coconut adds texture and flavor, and the vegan frosting is deliciously tangy and velvety.
