This website and I share a birthday month. We both came into the world in March, albeit about 38 years apart. Nevertheless, I like to celebrate our birthdays together, because All Day I Dream About Food is very special to me.

It’s particularly special because it gave me hope when I thought all was lost. When I was facing down the barrel of diabetes and knowing I had to go low carb for my health, I thought my baking life was over. And since baking was such a huge part of who I was, it felt like my life was over too.

But experimenting with new ingredients, and sharing those experiments here on this website, made it so much more manageable. And it’s still mind-blowing to me that this forum has grown to be one of the most popular low carb and keto recipe sites on the internet, with millions of readers every monty.

I think a slice of cake is in order, don’t you?

How can birthday cake be keto?

When you embark on a keto diet, chances are you think birthday cake, or any cake, is going to be off limits from now on. Not so, my friends, not so.

In fact, I’ve devoted my life’s work to showing the world that there is such a thing as keto cake, keto pie, and keto cookies. And that they can taste just as good and feel just as indulgent as the sugary, carb-laden kind.

Special occasions deserve cake. So whether you are celebrating a birthday, a graduation, or an anniversary, these keto cakes will make them feel just that much more momentous.

Don’t let your birthday go by without celebrating with the perfect keto birthday cake. This tender and moist vanilla cake is frosted with delicious sugar free buttercream making it the ideal dessert for any keto celebrations.

I created this recipe back in the good old days, when keto was hardly a twinkle in people’s eyes. While I was firmly low carb at the time, I hadn’t even heard the word ketogenic. And it certainly wasn’t the wildly popular diet it is now.
