Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World: 75 Dairy-Free Recipes for Cupcakes that Rule
My sister went to vegan culinary school several years ago. It was a big departure from the corporate lifestyle in Silicon Valley and NYC that we were accustomed to her having but “go forth and prosper.” Our first encounter with her vegan cooking on any level which was pre-culinary school were cupcakes. I think I shoveled about 4 into my mouth in one gulp. This was before I knew they were made without butter or eggs or anything I recognized as real food. In her long weekend visit, she made a few more batches of various types and each one was better than the last. The secret? This book. Every one of the recipes was either directly or inspired by one of the recipes in this book. It’s awesome in its layout. It has the various different cakes you can make: chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, etc. Then it tells you which frostings you can pair it with for various “themes” of cupcakes. There are buttercreams, fudgy, mint, chocolate, etc. You can keep playing with all sorts of combinations of cake and frosting to your hearts content…although I wouldn’t recommend it for your heart’s sake. This is a very inexpensive, great little book for anyone who enjoys baking, eating baked goods, having world domination themed books around, or needs a gift for someone.
