Birthday parties are a lot of fun but can also be stressful. Don't worry! We've got you covered with 10 ideas for birthday party desserts that are sure to please all your guests for the birthday celebrations.
1. Gluten-Free Apple Crumble
This apple crumble comes together quickly when you make the dough from scratch. It tastes as good as traditional apple crumbles, although it uses maple syrup instead of sugar for sweetness. The main difference between this dish and regular ones is that you'll use gluten-free flour instead of regular flour. This helps keep it light and fluffy while still being packed with flavor. It's a great dessert to make when you want something sweet but don't want to feel weighed down after eating it so you're sure to be able to participate in all the birthday celebrations.
2. Carrot Cake Cupcakes
Carrot cake cupcakes made from scratch could be gluten-free or vegan. They are frosted with cream cheese icing, then decorated with rainbow sprinkles or mini-M&Ms, making them the perfect dessert gift.
3. Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Vegan Cashew Crust
This is the perfect dessert for your next party. It's fresh, fruity, festive, gluten-free, and vegan friendly. The crust is made with cashews, so it has a nice nutty flavor that pairs well with the sweet rhubarb filling. With a strawberry rhubarb filling, it gets its beautiful pink hue from stevia extract and raspberries. The toppings include coconut whipped cream, fresh strawberries and raspberries, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
4. Cake Pops
Rather than having a birthday cake with colorful sprinkles or fresh berries, these delicious lollipops made from a cake are very popular on Instagram because they're fun to eat and look great in photos. They're also easy to make, and you can even buy them pre-made if you don't feel like being in the kitchen all day.
5. Pastel-Colored Macarons
A unique dessert for birthdays is the pastel-colored macarons decorated like flowers using different colored food coloring pens. This is especially cute if you pair it with some plantable seed cards attached so your guests can grow their flowers when they plant the seeds. You give your guests double sweet treats.
6. Gluten-Free Black Bean Brownies
These brownies are made without flour or gluten, so they're healthy. The recipe is simple, tasty, and very easy to make. You can bake these brownies in an oven or a microwave if you don't have much time. Just remember that the texture will be different when you use a microwave. Add chocolate chips and serve them at any celebration for extra flair and taste that won't be anything like a velvet cake or yellow cake.
7. Mini Blueberry Cheesecake Cups
A sweet and creamy treat, these mini blueberry cheesecakes are the perfect way to end your meal or celebrate a birthday or other special event. You can make them in a muffin pan for individual servings or use a cupcake tray for bigger cakes to share with friends.
8. Banana Bread French Toast with Maple Syrup
This recipe is perfect for a birthday breakfast or as a special dessert. It is sweet and savory that you can serve at your next birthday party or brunch for kids or adults. The bread is tender and moist, and the combined flavors of bananas, cinnamon, and maple make it irresistible. It's like combining two crowd-pleasing recipes into one fantastic dish!
9. An ice cream sundae bar
This treat is a fun idea you can modify to fit any theme or taste. It's easy to set up and serve as your guests- include different toppings that suit them. For example, it goes well with chocolate syrup, cinnamon sugar, chopped nuts, whipped cream, or other toppings.
10. Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Cake
This chocolate zucchini cake recipe contains healthy ingredients like coconut oil and dark chocolate chips and will prove to be one of your new favorite cake options. The best part is it's dairy free! For the perfect finish, remove the excess moisture from your grated zucchini by pressing it between paper towels or wringing it out in cheesecloth before adding it to the batter. This will prevent your cake from becoming soggy when baked. It's super moist, easy to make, and tastes fantastic!
Whether it's your birthday or that of someone you love, it's always fun to celebrate with food and a delicious treat. And while we all know there are many ways to treat yourself on your special day, one of the most enjoyable is a delicious treat.
