I found this cake to be dry. It had a lovely flavor and the icing was quite delicious (and successful). I started with cashews that had been refrigerated and soaked in water overnight. This shortened the process in the blender. In one to two minutes the icing was ready for the cake and no straining was needed.

Can I substitute rice milk for the soy milk? I am allergic to soy
