1. Fruit Torte

Fruit Tortes are perfect for a summer birthday party! They are bright, colorful, refreshing, and fun. And when you an arrangement of fresh, organic fruits that are ripe and juicy, a fruit torte will taste as sweet and yummy as a sugar version. If, you want to add a little topping, I suggest your child’s favorite sugar-free yogurt.

2. Pancake Cake

Who doesn’t love a fresh stack of pancakes? We all remember that unforgettable scene in “Uncle Buck”,  where Buck makes a gigantic pancake stack as a birthday breakfast. And when the pancakes are sugar free, stacked up high and topped with fresh fruit, they will not only be devoured by your children – but they most likely will think it is a fantastic birthday cake.

3. Watermelon Masterpiece Cake

Watermelons are a fun fruit that can be carved into fun shapes the same way a pumpkin is at Halloween. Why not carve a watermelon into a shape to match the theme of your child’s birthday party. What child or adult could resist a watermelon shaped like a shark or an owl?

4. Favorite Food Cake

Have a child who prefers a certain type of food? You can transform almost any type of food into a cake shape with a little creativity. For example, if your child loves cheese, why not stack a couple of wheels of their favorite kind and serve with fresh bread and fruit.

5. Veggie Cake

A very popular cake is made from carrots – but you can make a cake from any vegetable that your child loves using a little imagination. Whether you puree the vegetables and add them to the cake batter or make a cake completely out of vegetables, a vegetable cake is a fun, healthy alternative.
