Dairy Free Carrot Cake for 3 tier wedding cake?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

So I have a customer who is wanting a carrot cake for her wedding.  She has 1 guest who is lactose intolerant.  She is planning on 150.  I am meeting with her tomorrow to discuss the possibility of only doing 1 tier dairy free. Either way, its on the to-do list.  Does anyone know of a good recipe that is dairy free but can be stacked? Also, I am thinking we will have to go with a standard buttercream, unless anyone has a better idea?!  She is going for a country theme and wants it to look similar to this picture. 

 

 

I am hoping she will clarify tomorrow whether the guest has a dairy allergy or lactose intolerant.  I know there is a difference in both but for now, I am planning dairy free just to be safe.

For dairy-free icing, you would use dairy-free or vegan margarine.  These don't work for meringue type buttercream because they have more water than butter.

 

Or you can make white chocolate ganache with coconut milk--very mildly flavoured that goes very well with carrot cake. I use the regular Thai style, NOT reduced fat.


Thank you so much! I figured anything other than butter wouldn't work for SMBC.  The white chocolate ganache sounds AMAZING! I may just have to try that one! Thank you!
