sourcing a great non-dairy birthday cake (eggs fine!)

My son is allergic to milk but fine with eggs. I'd love to get him a really good non-dairy birthday cake and find the texture of many totally vegan cakes to odd. Does anyone know of a bakery that does cakes with eggs but without the dairy. I only knew about Bleeding Heart and they are gone. I am thinking maybe kosher bakeries but a lot of them don't seem to feature cake?

Our attempts at non-dairy muffins at home lately have been acceptable for family but not good enough for company so I'd rather go professional than DIY on this one since we'll be having a bunch of folks over to celebrate.

Dried Marrow Beans Chicago?

I am trying to make a Thomas Keller recipe that calls for Marrow Beans. I called Whole Foods and none of their stores carry them. I also called Piatti Pronto (our local Italian store). Any ideas where I can find this special kind of dried bean?

I also struck out at Treasure Island and Southport Grocery and Fox & Obel.

Also I hear the Rancho Gordo brand is a good kind...
