So has anybody else bought the cookbook "Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World" yet? It's by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, authour of Vegan with a Vengeance.<br><br><br><br>
I got my copy about a week ago and have been cupcake crazy ever since. So far I have made the cookies and cream, cappuccino, hazelnut with mocha filling, and the S'mores cupcakes. I have loved all of them.<br><br><br><br>
The next ones on my list are the Boston Cream, tiramisu, peanut butter, and maple cupcakes.<br><br><br><br>
So, are vegan cupcakes taking over any one else's world? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

I knew she was working on such a book, but I didn't know that it was out! Thanks!

I don't have it because I don't really have the time to bake cupcakes and I would make way too many instead of doing other things, but I drool daily at cupcake porn on the Post Punk Kitchen forums.

Guys, do the recipes call for a lot of vegan shop bought substitutes or things that are pretty much unique to the US and/or Canada? I've had probs before with non-uk cook books where I just can't get hold of the damn stuff!

Anyone who knows me knows that there are two things I will run through fire for.<br><br><br><br>
And one of them is cupcakes. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br>
I must get this cookbook.<br><br><br><br>
This is, to this point in my life, the greatest news I have <i>ever</i> received.<br><br><br><br>
That is <i>not</i> an overstatement. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:"><br><br><br><br><br><br>
ETA: I have, almost literally, begun to weep openly.

Considering I have a first-grader and to a first-grader, it eems ANY occasion is a reason to bring cupcakes to school...<br><br><br><br>
I can see where I need to buy this cookbook posthaste.<br><br><br><br>
So - no chance of you posting a recipe for those of us who would like to sample ONE recipe before we take that plunge and actually commit to BUYING the book?

Oh hell yeah... pre-ordered that baby weeks ago and got mine as soon as it was available to ship. I got it 2 weeks ago but thus far had only time to try 1 recipe (regrettably... between work, getting ready for 'ween, having a broken oven and having to drive to philly to use my mom's and not having the $$$ to buy ingredients) which was the apple cider cupcakes with buttercream frosting and caramel glaze. Well, I'll just say I made 3 dozen - took a few to work, left a few home and they were gone in a day in a half. And I'm not even a good baker. Isa Chandra is a goddess...

I don't have a copy but I'm sure if you drop Isa (the co-author) an email she'll probably be happy to send you a recipe. You can get in contact with her via her website, <a href="http://www.theppk.com" target="_blank">www.theppk.com</a>, she's a really nice and funny person. Alternately, if you join the forums there and post a message explaining that you just want a recipe to test I'm sure someone will type one up for you.
