My DS's school requires that any baked items for birthday celebrations be nut free and accommodate any other allergies in the classroom. DS has a child with a dairy allergy. Also, things need to be baked at school. The school recommends the allergy friendly cake mixes.

My DS wants to make rainbow cake - a basic white cake that kids then mix small amounts of batter with food coloring and it all gets poured into a pan to be a rainbow colored cake. The cake needs to be white for the colors to work.

How can I take a scratch recipe for white cake and make it dairy free? Would substituting rice/soy milk work or just water? The allergy free cake mixes have a yellow cake, but not white.
