Need help on what to use for cake with no dairy and icing no dairy.
Is it best to just pick up soy milk, and egg substitute, what about the butter though? if i use buttercream should i get a vegan butter/margarine?

I buy the becel margarine that is lactose free.I know it isn't butter but you can use that to make the icing dairy free.

You can make your buttercream with shortening!

If it's just dairy free then you can still use eggs.
I make a lovely orange and almond cake which is dairy free and gluten (flour) free.
And I'd go with all shortening buttercream or fondant.

Go to a Kosher store and ask for MIGDAL margarine, Is dairy free. Anything that says KOSHER PARVE means dairy free.

Fleischmann's unsalted stick margarine doesn't contain any dairy. icon_smile.gif
