Non dairy (inc egg) recipe needed for "cream" on kid's b/day cake.

The cake is a vanilla flavoured non dairy cake with faux egg.
Any ideas for a cream filling??
This is for a 5 y/o b/day cake.
whole foods carries a whipped cream that comes in a can that is made of soy. there's also a product called "hip whip," somewhat similar to cool whip. neither is as nasty as you might think. maybe one of them would do the trick?
I can't offer you a specific recipe, but I'll mention that I had a vegan carrot cake last week with a delicious almond butter frosting. You might try googling for vegan frosting to find a recipe. Several for peanut butter frostings popped up.
Several Duncan Hines frostings in a can are dairy free. I cannot, however, swear that they are egg free so check the ingredients.
Also, this brand -- Cherrybrook Kitchen -- is egg free and dairy free. They have frostings. They sell it at Whole Foods.
Actually, being in Australia puts most of these things out of my reach, but the vegan recipe site is great!
Thanks for the link!
There's a number of chocolate mousse recipes that are basically tofu,, melted chocolate and sugar that make a tasty filling, although there's a slight beany taste. It might work for a frosting as well.
There's also a number of vegan kosher frosting recipes, many use vegtable shortening or margarine.
One beats vegan margine, sugar and vanilla soymilk. I haven't tried it.
Finally there's what I had at summer health food camp as a kid;
sliced bannanas covered with shredded coconut. Guarenteed to suck all the fun out of the party ;-)
