Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 1 large cake
  • 1 dairy-free yellow cake box mix
  • Oil
  • 2 eggs (or as directed on package)
  • So Delicious Coconut Milk Beverage
  • 1 package dairy-free cream cheese alternative (Michelle uses Daiya, which is also soy-free)

  1. Bake the cake as directed on the package in a 12-inch springform pan with oil and eggs, but using coconut milk beverage in place of the water called for. Let cool completely.
  2. Once cooled remove the cake and cut it horizontally in half to create 2 circular cake rounds/layers.
  3. Whip the cream cheese alternative with the powdered sugar, adding water as needed, 1 tablespoon at a time, to get a thick, but spreadable consistency.
  4. Whip the topping or coconut cream (with a touch of sweetener added) and use it to decorate the cake, along with the strawberries.
  5. Let it set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
