Review by sussabmax
Very nearly a perfect book. I know that wishing the recipes were a bit healthier is kind of missing the point, but I wish it anyway. Still, this book is a totally awesome answer to assertions that eating vegan is boring. The cupcakes are gorgeous, and very delicious!
Review by comfortinsound
this cookbook is used so much in my house (by both my mom and me) that the pages are literally falling out of it. the cupcakes in this book are awesome; i often bring some to school to share with my english class, and everyone loves them. (at first, i made the mistake of telling everyone they were vegan, and they totally lost interest in them, just like in the movie "year of the dog.") my favourite cupcakes are probably the maple-pecan ones, but i also love the cookies and cream and orange pudding cupcakes. a fabulous book.
Review by Eurydice
Quite frankly, the book is mood-altering all by itself. The ideas are so much fun - and so often, such great grown-up fun - that it's impossible not to love. - And this though I am not a vegan, and not a cupcake fiend! Add to that the excellence of the recipes and techniques, and the results I've had thus far, and you have a ringing endorsement. Vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore, I say: buy it. For your own happiness, if not your health, you (or some baker you know), needs this book. Look at the recipes (- and grin). Bake some (= bliss). Give most of them away (know the joy of altruism - and restraint!). Eat your own (for pure sensual indulgence). Hear kudos and requests for more (always gratifying). Then buy ten copies, and give away... :)
Review by VegAnne
This little book is great! For my first foray into baking in many years, I made Cashew Butter Cardamom and despite making lots of mistakes, the final product was lovely and light and the frosting was gorgeous! I gave some to non-vegan friends who couldn't believe there was no butter and eggs. No more shop-bought cakes for me, it's all out of this book from now on.

5 stars for the chocolate cherry cupcakes w/chocolate buttercream alone and plus the fact that I now have birthday cakes for my dairy allergic daughter!
