Happy Birthday! What better way to celebrate someone’s special day than by making them a spectacularly gorgeous cake? Store-bought cakes work, but these ten options below contain no animal products, no icing with artificial food coloring, and no unhealthy oils or preservatives, as some store-bought cakes do. Some of these are even raw, and thus, don’t have to be baked (yum, ice cream cake!) Besides, making and decorating these yourself adds a special touch to show you truly care. Of course, if you don’t have any upcoming birthdays to celebrate, you can always make these for a just-because occasion. Check out these 10 exquisite vegan birthday cakes:
