I've used a nice packet cake mix in the past and swapped out the liquid (milk / egg) for banana, chia seeds soaked in water or yoghurt (you could use coconut yoghurt and check the packet mix has none of the forbidden items)

I'm not entirely sure about gelatin, but it is so easy to make a dairy free soy free cake. Just use a regular cake recipe - any cake recipe online, or your favourite chocolate cake, etc, and use almond, rice or oat milk, instead of cows milk, and nuttelex instead of butter. Most cake recipes can be made this way. 'Greens' brand plain chocolate or vanilla packet cake mixes are dairy free, as long as you make it with the oat, almond or rice milk. You would have to double check the box for traces of soy or gelatin. Good luck!

Awesome ideas! Didn't think of using nuttlex for icing or rice milk for milk substitute! Im going to go with dairy free packet mix with rice milk/almond milk and a nuttlex cream icing.
Thanks so much!
You have no idea how much this is appreciated.

@DesperatelySeekingSleep I've used this before. It was really really tasty.
Moist Chocolate Cake
2/3 cup of dairy free milk
1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 t cider vinegar
2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup strong brewed coffee (decaffeinated for kids)
1/2 cup dairy free sour cream
1/2 cup veg oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
Egg replacer (2 eggs worth)
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly oil and flour 2 9-inch round spring-form cake pans and set aside. In a small mixing bowl or dish, combine the milk and cider vinegar until well-mixed. Set aside (mixture will thicken slightly).
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until well combined. Create a well in the center of the ingredients. Add the milk mixture, egg replacer, coffee, dairy-free sour cream, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract to the well. Using an electric hand mixer, beat the ingredients on a medium-speed setting for 1-2 minutes, or until smooth. (Note: the batter will be rather thin, but this is normal!).
3. Pour the batter into the prepared pans and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes emerges clean. Allow cakes to cool in the pan for 20-30 minutes, then carefully remove the cakes from the pans and allow to cool completely on wire cooling racks before layering and frosting with Dairy Free Chocolate Frosting.
For an extra rich cake, try preparing a batch of Dark Chocolate Ganache and using it to fill the middle layer of the cakes. Allow the ganache to chill for about 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until pliable but firm, then evenly spread the ganache evenly over the top surface of one of the cakes. Place the other cake on top, then frost with Dairy Free Chocolate Frosting.
Dairy Free Choc Frosting
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup dairy free margarine
1/4 sweet milk (almond?)
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 t vanilla
Using an electric mixer, cream the sugar and margarine until thick but well combined. Add the milk, cocoa, and vanilla and continue to mix until smooth.
16 ounces good quality dairy free dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
15 ounce can coconut milk (not light/lite varieties)
1/2 t vanilla
Place the chocolate in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat (medium high) the coconut milk until bubble begin to rise to the surface at the edge and steam starts to rise. Pour the hot cocomut milk over the chocolate and leave to stand for 5 mins- don't stir.
After 5 mins, stir until glossy and smooth (about 2 mins).
Stir in vanilla extract. Use warm or slightly cooled.

Hmmmm looks like I'm getting my cake! Lol
For the record, its not the cake itself I want. It's the tradition. I don't ever ask for anything materialistic through the year, ever, except for cake on my birthday. I would much prefer someone else to make it or organise it but if this is the only way I'm getting cake for my birthday then so be it. Lol.
