Today we owe a slice of vegan birthday cake to one of our celebrity faves, Ellen DeGeneres!

The comedian and talk show host turned 53-years-old today, and celebrated in true style on her show with guests Colin Farrell and Julia Roberts. Also waiting in the wings? A custom vegan, red velvet cake from West Hollywood bakery Sweet Lady Jane.

This is one of DeGeneres’ favorite cakes! The bakery presented one to her last year on her birthday, but also created a wedding cake for her marriage to Portia de Rossi.

Traditionally, the bakery’s red velvet cake is described as, “A light chocolate buttermilk cake, a rich beautiful red, with two layers of cream cheese filling as well as frosting of cream cheese. We decorate this cake with buttercream red poppies and edge it with toasted red velvet cake crumbs.” The custom vegan version is essentially the same, just made with all animal-friendly ingredients, which makes it even more delicious!

Other celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Kelly Osbourne, and Tori Spelling have all turned to Sweet Lady Jane when they need their sugar fix!

Do you have any vegan birthday treat favorites??

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
