Vegan Wedding Cakes?

savoriesnsweets | Feb 12, 2013 06:18 AM

Hi all,
I'm currently an avid baker and cake decorator, however I've been noticing an increase in requests for dairy-free & egg-free cakes. Does anyone have any good resources (books or websites) for really delicious vegan wedding cakes that are still sturdy enough to have a filling and be tiered?

Im thinking for this type of cake, a fruit filling is best. Or I can try my hand at a non-dairy ganache. Has anyone had success making ganache with a non-dairy milk? like almond milk for example?

Also, are there any ways to make really rich and delicious vegan "buttercream"? I usually make a Swiss Meringue Buttercream. Is there any vegan frosting that would be light and rich like a meringue buttercream, but not too sweet? I'd really appreciate any input! Thanks!
