If there’s one thing that makes us happier than vegan cake, it’s vegan cake for kids. Why? Growing up, a vegan cake that tastes good is something that many of us (or rather, our parents) would have a tough time finding. But with the rise of plant-based food, things have changed. Not only are there now healthier kids snacks available to us, it also seems like there are more bakeries that can create a custom-order vegan cake for a special occasion.

What gets us even more excited is that the change isn’t exclusive to the U.S. For example, Singapore-based bakery, Ugly Cake Shop (don’t let the name fool you), makes custom vegan birthday cakes for kids in a style that reminds us of our own childhood birthday cakes. Check out their decorating skills below!

Forget ordering this for a kid, we want this  Yoda cake for ourselves.

Homemade Vegan Birthday Cake Ideas

Looking to take a crack at baking a homemade cake? We can help with that! We searched the depths of the Food Monster app to find a vegan cake that’ll make your kid’s birthday extra-special:

This beautiful Blueberry Cake by Hana Mendes is sure to impress at any birthday party! Blueberry Cake With Coconut Frosting

This Blueberry Cake is gluten-free cake in disguise. By that, we mean that the texture is so amazing, nobody would ever know that it’s gluten-free unless you told them. Fresh blueberries are stirred into the batter, adding little bursts of fruity flavor into every bite. The frosting is a combination of coconut cream and coconut yogurt that works like a dream. Blueberry powder is used to give it a gorgeous purple color.

Does your kid love chocolate? Try this Decadent Brownie Cheesecake by Gretchen Price

If you like cheesecake or brownies then you’ve got to try this Brownie Cheesecake. A slab of velvety, rich cheesecake, with just a touch of cinnamon, is sandwiched between two, fudgy layers of brownie and then topped with a luxurious chocolate buttercream frosting before being finished with a drizzle of homemade chocolate sauce.

This Lemon Cake With Strawberry Jam Frosting by Holly Jade is pretty in pink.Lemon and Strawberry Jam Cake

This gorgeous and gluten-free Lemon Cake is perfect for birthdays and parties! It’s made from sweet, zingy lemon cake that’s filled with strawberry jam and then covered in a rich strawberry buttercream frosting. Best of all, this beautiful gluten-free cake is decadent without being heavy.
