What do you have, and what kind of cake? Shortening, oil (decrease liquid in recipe), applesauce or another fruit puree...

i have subbed in oil for butter and vice versa many times. the recipe just needs a fat of some kind. coconut or olive oil is my go-to, but i would think vegetable oil would work too, it's the same concept. i usually just do a 1 to 1 and don't mess much with other ingredients. with something like a cake recipe, i think you'll be ok, even if you don't decrease other liquids or anything. if you feel like it's too runny, just add a little extra flour after you mix it :)

We are dairy free & I find coconut oil works best for butter, esp when I'm baking.
