My daughter is lactose intolerant and I make cakes for her all the time. Instead of regular milk I use the lactaid milk. It's a little more expensive but it tastes the same, even in icing.

Have u ever tried soy milk?? We did when she first was diagnosed (and every other kind I could find) The Lactaid is the closest I fouind to regular milk. [u]Chocolate [/u]Silk isn't too bad but is different than milk and would probably only be good in chocolate cake/icing. These are only my opinions of what works for us. HTH

Thanks SO much for all the help! Im really excited to make this cake that he will be able to enjoy since he is often left out due to the dairy. Im sure he is going to love it!! I think ill try the lactaid milk since its the closest to what I know, and since i dont make many cakes like this, im not too concerned about the cost..

Use the Wilton all crisco recipe for the frosting. I can't have any dairy products including the ones with the lactose removed, so that is what I use if I am going to be eating the cake.

For the frosting you can use the Class buttercream icing of wiltons It is all crisco instead of 1/2 crisco 1/2 butter.

Buttercream Icing-Wilton

Ingredients:
1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine*
1 teaspoon Clear Vanilla
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approx. 1 lb.)
2 tablespoons milk** (or water)
Cream butter and shortening with electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Keep icing covered with a damp cloth until ready to use. For best results, keep icing bowl in refrigerator when not in use. Refrigerated in an airtight container, this icing can be stored 2 weeks. Rewhip before using.

YIELD: 3 cups

*Substitute all-vegetable shortening and 1/2 teaspoon Wilton No-Color Butter Flavor for pure white icing and stiffer consistency.

**Add 2 tablespoons light corn syrup per recipe to thin for icing cake

If they can;t have eggs you can find substitutiosn all over( i jsut do 1 tablespoon of oil alot of the times). There's also a vegan egg replacer called Ener-g egg replacer. If you can find that that works great to. Also if you need a vegan(milk free/ egg free)cake mix to use i can get you the flavors of ducane heines that is milk and egg free. Most of the cake mixes already have milk in the mix.

I'd say no about the butter flavoring. I'd have to see the ingredients to really be sure it doesn't have milk ,but i bet it does.

As for the non-dary icing let me see the ingediants and i can tell you. But let me warn you just because they say dairy-free doesn't always mean dairy free(weird i know ,but it happens).
