Any and all flavors would be great. I tried doing a search and couldn't find anything. (Is it just me or does that happen to anyone else?)

I found this when I was searching for some dairy free mixes. Apparently some Duncan Hines mixes are dairy free.

Be careful with icing recipes like Sugarshack's that call for non-dairy creamer. I haven't found any non-dairy creamer to TRULY be non-dairy. They have a milk protein in them called cassein. There are also many milk derivatives so make sure you are looking for these in any ingredients you use.

Good luck! [/u]

My daughter is milk allergic so I go through this all the time. I usually use either the Duncan Hines Classic Yellow or Devil's food for cake mix, which at the moment do not contain dairy (check the box, though, because for a while they changed the recipe and it had dairy and now it's back to dairy free). For my icing, I just subsitute Fleischman's unsalted margarine for the butter my recipe usually calls for. (Be careful with the Fleischmans, too. Only the green package "unsalted" is dairy free, lots of other margarines contain milk.) Also as a pp mentioned, there are other terms they use in the ingredient list like whey, casein, nonfat powdered milk, etc. Those all mean it contains milk protein.

You could also search Vegan recipes. I just bought a vegan cupcake book for my daughter that looks fantastic. The whole book is different cupcake recipes that don't contain any dairy (vegans don't eat dairy, among other things).

Good luck!

Great idea, projectqueen. I forgot about that. Vegan recipes will be dairy free. I'm not sure what book projectqueen was talking about but I have heard Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World is a fantastic cookbook.
