Default I need a white cake recipe

I need a vegan white cake recipe to use for birthdays. I need a delicious
cake that is not tough or will not fall apart. I have tried many recipes
vegan and veganized, but I just can't seem to come close enough to a box
mix. I don't need or want it to be healthful, although trans fat is out.
Does such a recipe even exist? Everytime a birthday rolls around there is
tension between my wife and I. She is not vegan and offers to make me a
separate cake (I hate that). I just want to eat what everyone else is
eating, but I need to find a really good recipe that non-vegans will enjoy.
I have tried putting powdered egg replacer in a vegan box mix, but it falls
apart, I have tried over a half a dozen "from scratch" recipes with varying
degrees of success, but none quite good enough.

What does everyone do for birthdays with their non-vegan families & friends?
I am the only vegan I know and it gets kind of lonely.

I just want a good piece of white cake...is that to much to ask?
My daughter's 2nd birthday is coming up and any help would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks,
David

http://shmooedfood.blogspot.com/2006...-cupcakes.html

I haven't tried this particular recipe yet but I've made similar recipes.

I used to use Duncan Hines mixes when they were dairy-free and they
worked well for me with Ener-G egg replacer. Brownie Mixes do not work
well with egg replacer.

I googled searched this group and found many recipes. I'll proceed to
repost them for you.

Good Luck with the "Terrible Twos".

You could try using yeast to make it fluffy. It'd come out like a very sweet
bread (not sweetbreads!!! YUK!).

I tried this once and it wasn't bad.
