I just made this for my daughter's 3rd birthday and they were a huge hit! We aren't dairy free but we are egg free and lactose free. We used Lactade milk, but I would think you could substitute what you use for milk just fine. Also, if you would like the original recipe calls for 1 egg. If you use egg also omit the Ener-G egg replacer. We did cupcakes, so I'm not sure if a cake would cook properly yet. Hope this recipe helps! Sorry it's so long! If you have any questions feel free to contact me. Happy Birthday!

Namaste chocolate cake mix is definitely gluten and dairy free and I'm pretty sure it's soy free, too. It's delicious! I made it for at both my daughters birthdays and everyone loved it. In fact, the mom of one of the girls at the party told me that her daughter said the cake was the best cake she'd ever eaten (and she's a gluten eater!)

Check out the post "I have achieved . . . Cake!". Substitute the milk for soy milk. Make sure you don't use low fat. Baking a cake needs fat, which soy has. Soy milks tastes terrible, but works very well in baked goods.
