Notes about this book

  • rzperllian on January 07, 2010

    There are only two bad things I can say about this book: it will make you fat, and it uses a fair number of unusual ingredients, even for a vegan epicure (chocolate extract? green tea powder? seriously?). Nevertheless, there are some really simple recipes, and some really elegant ones, and I saw the weird ingredients as a fun challenge. I've made most of the cupcakes in here over the course of 2 years, and only a few have been short of delightful. Even my non-vegan roommates liked getting in on the action, because a good cupcake is a good cupcake, and there are lots of those in here. Pretty much all vegans ought to own this book, I think, unless they don't like dessert.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Apricot-glazed almond cupcakes

    • rzperllian on January 07, 2010

      These are delicious, sophisticated, and simple (relatively, anyway). One of my favorites, and a hit all around!

  • Green tea cupcakes with green tea glaze and almond flowers

    • rzperllian on January 07, 2010

      Matcha powder is expensive, but a little goes a long way. My boyfriend loves these cupcakes; to me, they're just really almondy. Interesting, for sure.

    • rionafaith on September 22, 2016

      Unusual but tasty. Go to the effort of making the marzipan flowers -- they're quite easy and make a beautiful topper.

  • Orange pudding cupcakes with chocolate ganache

    • rzperllian on January 07, 2010

      Marmalade chocolate = heaven! These take a lot of time to make (which is obvious from the recipe), but they're pretty impressive. I remember there being way too much pudding.

  • Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes

    • rzperllian on January 07, 2010

      These are rich, spicy, chocolatey, interesting. I like that they're not frosted. They're sure to please even the non-vegans; a sure winner, and the ones I make most often.

  • Crimson velveteen cupcakes with old-fashioned velvet icing

    • CRCarroll6 on December 11, 2010

      I love, love, love these...

  • Chai latte cupcakes

    • imaluckyducky on June 23, 2013

      These are quite good! A good quality black tea will go a long way in this recipe. They bake up extremely moist, so if you're transporting them somewhere, it may be best to sprinkle the powdered sugar spice mix when you arrive to your destination.

    • Lglen on October 09, 2018

      Made them twice and they’re great! Both times I used a chai black tea rather than just black tea

  • Tiramisù cupcakes

    • imaluckyducky on June 23, 2013

      These can be a pain in the neck to make, and may not look as pretty as the pictures the first time around (I suck at cutting out a hole for the filling :( ). However, these cupcakes are amazing! Not too sweet, not too boozy (although you can remedy that!).

  • Vegan fluffy buttercream frosting

    • Hannaha100 on May 02, 2020

      I made this and added a couple of drops of almond extract which I think helped disguise the taste of shortening which I hate. Tasted good and looked pretty but as written too soft for piping - it doesn't hold it's shape with our usual margarine. Add more icing sugar next time (see Mellissa Morgan)

  • Vanilla gluten-freedom cupcakes

    • Hannaha100 on April 19, 2020

      I made this and was a total failure. At 160C they never cooked in the middle and developed a crust on top. I'm willing to believe it might be because I ground my own flour and this may have thrown the quantities off. Unlikely to repeat.

  • Gingerbread cupcakes

    • rionafaith on September 22, 2016

      Made these a while back, but I remember them being delicious. Topped with lemon cream cheese icing from the same book and a garnish of crystallized ginger.

  • Lemony vanilla cupcakes

    • Lglen on September 18, 2018

      I’ve made this twice, both times made 24 mini muffins and both times they were very good. I’m sure I will make them again since most people enjoy lemon.

  • Your basic chocolate cupcake

    • Lglen on September 18, 2018

      Made these twice, second time a double batch for my daughter’s wedding with half frosted with peppermint extract (hence the green gummy and candy decoration) these are a sure win at least when made as mini cupcakes. I used a good quality tin by Dough makers and parchment paper liners.

  • Brooklyn vs. Boston cream pie cakes

    • Octobre on June 05, 2019

      Delicious and rich! (even just using the semisweet chocolate vs. the darker option for the ganache). 15 minutes is EXACTLY the perfect time to eat these after removing them from the fridge to thaw.
