    Sadly. My fiance is allergic to milk. I was wondering if anyone else has had an experience with asking for a cake to be specially made without milk, butter or margerine, etc. I'm worried this could be a problem.

    Also we're vegetarians. help!

      I feel you girl! I'm allergic to wheat, dairy and eggs. Thus, I won't be having a wedding cake. I came to a conclusion that my resort cook probably isn't used to making gluten-egg-dairy free cake so it'll probably taste bad anyways.

      Dairy is not essential to cake, so I think it's definitely possible in your case. Maybe you can find a good recipe before hand and ask your resort to make it.

      Depending on how sensitive your sweetie is to dairy, you may also want to look into doing chocolate fondue with DARK chocolate. Also, there's chocolate chips that are gluten/egg/dairy free from the company "Enjoy Life".

      There are other desserts that don't use dairy- i.e. merengue cookies, pies made with vegetable shortening etc. Maybe you can look through this site for ideas
