    sweet lord...I gifted this to myself as an end of school year/ran my first 5k/I'm really awesome present.

So I started off with the "Sexy Low-Fat Vanilla Cupcakes" because mama's got got some booty to work off and, besides, I was saving my caloric intake for RASPBERRY BUTTERCREAM! But I couldn't stop there. Oh no. I then made a chocolate ganache to go on top of the raspberry buttercream. Because there's nothing sexier than Sexy Low-Fat Vanilla Cupcakes with VEGAN RAPBERRY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING ANNNNNDD CHOCOLATE GANACHE!!!! Seriously, Isa is my goddess. Even though being vegan is easier than I anticipated it's still hard work sometimes. Especially when bombarded with all sorts of lovely baked goods at every work or social or whatever function you go to. It's nice to have a little book with a whole arsenal of vegan cupcake goodness to come home to. Five stars and then some.

    Even my friends who hate veganism can't turn their noses at the killer cupcakes in this book. The peanut buttercream is to die for, and the Tiramisu cupcakes got me laid. Twice. The pineapple "right side up" cupcakes are unique and yummy, and the mint chocolate cupcakes reminded me of Girl Scout cookies. The cupcakes are light and fluffy, unlike many recipes for vegan baked goods which come out like balls of clay. You will not be disappointed. Trust me.

    OMG. I had almost forgotten what a light and fluffy cupcake is like. Obviously I've been using the wrong recipes (although a nice dense chocolate chocolate chip cupcake is good now and then). I've made 4 recipes from this book and they've all been phenomenal. My favorite cupcake so far is the Cookies-n-Cream cupcake. Holy chocolate! Not only are the recipes great, but the book is a sweet little concoction with anecdotes, fun writing, and a smart layout. You can't go wrong with this one. ::::::::::::: U OMG.

This is a great cookbook for bakers who want to create amazing treats for the dairy-minded. Most people just don't realize that a cupcake (and other baked goods) don't need eggs, butter, or milk to be good. When people find out these are vegan and are flabbergasted, well, it's a good thing.

    This book is amazing and so much fun to read. All the recipes are vegan, but don't tell the eaters; they'll never know. Everyone loves these recipes: omnivores, vegetarians, and vegans. Vegans really appreciate them because most cupcakes call for animal products. Once the recipes in this book are sampled, it will be obvious that animal products are superfluous! A really enjoyable cookbook. I can't wait to make some of these with children/teens as it would make a terrific (and delicious) project! This book is amazing and so much fun to read.

Have now given it as a gift to 5 people, I'm so sure that everyone will like it! This book, and The Joy of Vegan Baking by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, are probably the only baking books I'll ever need.

    Review: A few years ago I came across this book, an entire book of vegan cupcake recipes. This intrigued me because I was interested to see how well a cupcake would turn out with no eggs or milk. Honestly, I didn't think they would be very good...they'd be too dry or dense. But I'm never one to turn down a cupcake so I bought the book and headed to the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients.

This intrigued me because I was interested to see how well a cupcake would turn out with no eggs or milk. Honestly, I didn't think they would be very good...they'd be too dry or dense. But I'm never one to turn down a cupcake so I bought the book and headed to the grocery store to pick up a few ingredients. For the next couple of months I baked a different kind of cupcake every week. And you know what? They all turned out delicious. Since I was making so many cupcakes I would share them with pretty much anyone who wanted to try them. Unfortunately, I know people who would not try these cupcakes if I told them that they were vegan cupcakes. So I tricked those people into eating them. They were all shocked to learn that the dessert they were going back for thirds and fourths for were vegan. There is quite the variety of cupcakes recipes in this cookbook. They range from your basic chocolate or vanilla cupcake to a banana split cupcake to a s'mores cupcake to green tea cupcakes to coconut lime cupcakes. Plus there are recipes for vegan frosting. Is your mouth watering yet? The peanut butter cupcakes are a personal favorite, I've made those multiple times. However, I do have one gripe about this book. It lies. There are not "75 dairy-free recipes for cupcakes". I counted. There are only 39 cupcake recipes. Then there are an additional 14 recipes for frosting or glaze. 39 + 14 = 53. So where are the other 22 recipes?? I'm thinking the authors are counting the variations listed at the end of some of the recipes. That disappointed me a little, I was looking forward to 75 original recipes. Overall, this is a great book filled with amazing cupcake recipes. If want to make a batch of vegan cupcakes or just try a new recipe (apple cider cupcakes anyone?), then this book is a great place to start.

    I, the sole vegan in an office full of vegan-skeptics, have become the designated office baker because of this book. The mexian hot chocolate cupcakes are amazing, as are the plain chocolate, the pumpkin chip (though the icing for those is weird) and the mint-chocolate, and the vegan buttercream is perfect. All of the recipes are fairly easy and I can manage them on just 2 square feet of counter space!

    How many cookbooks have a forward (hi Tegan and Sara) that speaks of a punk chef grandma? Well if it is a book by vegan cook/author Isa Chandra Moskowitz you can expect to find just that! This is not my first rodeo with Isa, but it is with her co-author Terry Hope Romero. I always read every last word in a cookbook, but only in Isa's, (and now Terry's), do I hang on every last word.

I seriously would love it if Isa wrote a novel… Or if she wanted to be my friend (Isa can we be BFFs?). There is just one thing - I don't get the dig on Dick Cheney...does he really think cupcakes are not cute? Other than confusing me on that one point the cookbook is riddled with great advice. For example: "collect a bunch of [extracts] and soon you'll be known as the Magical Extract Lady (or Man) and the local children will follow you wherever you go"! 😹 Hey this book not only gives great advice but it also teaches (file under the more you know). 1. Don't use the baking soda that absorbs the odors in your refrigerator in any recipe. 2. Newark New Jersey is an exotic and enchanting land. 3. If you tend to eat a cupcake before it cools down then you are impatient and you should probably go do a sudoku puzzle and relax!! 4. In case you come from a planet that does not have birthdays don't eat the candles... Recipes. There are some really good ones. There are several that I am so looking forward to making right now that it is Autumn. Apple cider cupcakes. Pumpkin chocolate chip cupcakes. Gingerbread cupcakes with lemony frosting. Maple cupcakes. Some others that really interest me: Orange pudding cupcakes. Hazelnut cupcakes with mocha hazelnut mousse filling. Pistachio rosewater cupcakes. Cappuccino cupcakes filled with espresso creme.... Seriously though this book leaves no stone unturned… There is even a mention of the Queen of England cat sitting! I know right! In closing, from the forward: "I plan on enjoying each one of the innovative delights found in this book while pretending that they contribute to my healthy lifestyle. Vegans need some indulgence too!"

    This is without a doubt the best cookbook I own (and that's saying a lot). I bought this book when I was assigned the task of baking for my lactose-intolerant friend's birthday. I wanted to make her red velvet cake, her favorite, and needed to find a lactose-free version. I have to admit that even I, a formerly pretty die-hard vegetarian and very open-minded kind of girl, was pretty skeptical about how good vegan cupcakes would be. I expected dry, flavorless, nasty little things. Oh, how wrong I This is without a doubt the best cookbook I own (and that's saying a lot).

I expected dry, flavorless, nasty little things. Oh, how wrong I was. These cupcakes are the best cupcakes that anyone I know has ever tasted, and these are people that are decidedly not vegan. In fact, most of them wouldn't even touch the cupcakes if they'd known they were vegan. So I whip up a batch, pawn them off on unsuspecting people who comment on their absolute awesomeness, and then scream "AND THEY'RE VEGAN!!!" Most of them don't believe me.

    A really fun little book - so far, I have made two kinds of cupcakes, and three kinds of frosting from the book. Both cupcake recipes were delicious, and two of the three frostings were *great*. I realize that vegan baking is a exercise in creativity and there is a true art to substitution... but I couldn't help but think that there may have been some other subs for all of the soy products and the sugars in the book. I used almond and hazelnut milk in place of the soy and had very good results. A really fun little book - so far, I have made two kinds of cupcakes, and three kinds of frosting from the book.

I used almond and hazelnut milk in place of the soy and had very good results. I also cut the sugar amounts in half on the frostings and they were still very sweet and perfect for the recipe. All in all, it is a great book and one that I will turn to for years to come for quick delicious recipes for myself and for all my friends - vegan or not!

    This was one of the first books that helped me on my way to becoming vegan. It showed me how easy it is to make awesome tasty treats, cruelty-free. And since cake is all that really matters to me, these recipes were a joy to try out. It has an amazingly wide variety of flavours for such a small book and I haven't yet made something from it that I didn't like! Just wonderful. Grace

    I generally wait to give a rating to a cookbook until I've tried a number of recipes. Yesterday, I made the chocolate mint cupcakes (page 73) and took them to a Christmas party. They were so easy and delicious I'm awarding this five stars. This darling little book has lots of great colour photos, clear instructions and a cupcake recipe for every occasion.

    Maybe I shouldn't have told everyone that I just got this book, because I've promised about 100 people I would make them cupcakes. Many of the recipes in this book are easy, and all of them are delicious (or at least delicious-sounding... for those I haven't yet made). I really couldn't believe how moist and fluffy the cake was, and now I'm hooked!

    I don't care about my cupcakes being vegan; I care about delicious recipes. Everything I've tried so far has been great. Well-written recipes that have been simple, with correct portions and cooking times. A range of skill level and time investment represented.

    Vegan Cupcakes take over the World was a definitely delicious find. Let me start by saying I love cupcakes! Not just eating them, but looking at them. They are just so cute! I guess that is why I call my daughter “Cupcake” as a term of endearment. Even though I have only made two recipes from this book, I feel I can leave a confident review.

Well written, easy to follow directions, extra added tips, and the healthy factor makes this a cupcake book I will return to over and over. Both recipes I made were not 100% vegan; partially because I am not a vegan and partially because I could not find some of the ingredients. Through conversations here on goodreads with vegan friends, I am now prepared to make 100% vegan cupcakes to get the full experience. The two recipes I made were the Dulce Sin Leche Cupcakes (I used regular powdered milk instead of soy powdered milk) and the Golden Vanilla Cupcakes with Rich Chocolate Ganache Topping. I made both in double batches for church parties. Each recipe makes 12 cupcakes. I only had to make one serving of the Ganache; there was plenty for all 24 cupcakes and enough to indulge in before throwing the pan in the sink. Oh my, was that divine! I made a substitution on both recipes one calling for maple syrup and the other for brown rice syrup. I used agave syrup instead. I never used it before and wanted to try it. I will say I will continue to use it, it is a winner. The cupcakes were a hit. I decorated the Golden Vanilla’s to look like reindeer which I saw in a FamilyFun magazine http://familyfun.go.com/recipes/rudol... If you are a parent or anyone who cares for children you really should check out this magazine. I am always finding something in it of value. If you don’t want to get the magazine they have a wonderful website. The candies used to make the reindeer were not vegan. Either way the kids and adults loved the cupcakes! My little girl wanted to be lifted up several times to see them on the counter. I also felt better about letting her eat the cake portion of these cupcakes. My hubby snapped two pictures for me to share with you. He is not a professional photographer, no lighting or any fancy stuff was used. You have to admit these cuppies (my little girl’s word for cupcakes) say “EAT ME.”

These recipes could easily impress anyone, vegan, vegetarian, or omni. I doubt they'd even know they were vegan unless you told them. I am so far thoroughly impressed with this book, and can't recommend it enough.

    This book is great for proving that being vegan can be totally delicious--every recipe I've tried from it so far has totally impressed the non-vegans I've fed them to! So far my favorites are the carrot, the cookies'n'cream, and the raspberry buttercream frosting (I made it with coconut cupcakes, which was awesome)--the only problem is that these are so good I just want to make them over and over again and thus haven't tried too many more recipes from the book!

    I don't usually bake how this book bakes - For example I would never use vegetable shortening for anything much less to make frosting. And I seem to never have anything I need for the cupcakes in my cupboard leading me down a slippery slope to complete cupcake failure and angst. And I am lazy and don't follow directions and don't like things that involve more than about two steps. But the Margarita Cupcakes make the entire book worth it.

    Probably the first cookbook I've ever sat down and read cover to cover. While the book definitely is an entertaining and informative read, often the recipes aren't that practical. If I have to go to 3 different stores and order ingredients online in order to make one batch of cupcakes... It's just not going to happen. Her baking advice is really useful and also witty, but I wish she could have given more readily available ingredient substitutions for each recipe.

    I am not even really a fan of cupcakes or cake in general, but this book may make me change my mind. The recipes are fantastic! I've only made about 4 recipes so far, but they were all good. In the future though I'm going to half the icing recipes, because apparently I don't like as much icing as the authors do and I always have so much icing leftover I have to throw some away. Aw, the chocolate cupcakes are so good, one time I ate the batter until I was sick from sugar overload!!

    This cookbook is highly recommended for anyone looking to eliminate animal products from their diet without sacrificing tasty treats. So far I've made the basic chocolate, basic vanilla, black forest and peanut butter cupcakes and they were all delicious. Just don't mix them up too much of the center falls. The author explains this in the technique section of the book but it's an error I continue to make.

    I love cupcakes because of this book. My friends love me because of this book. I am not a vegan, but I think veganism sometimes gets a bad rap. Seriously, nobody ever knows or suspects these are vegan because they are so awesome. Almost every single recipe I've made has been a huge hit with every crowd.

    I have made many many many many cupcakes in my life, but these are fabulous in so many ways! They are delicious, and I'd like to believe they're a healthier alternative...even though I know better! Some of the recipies are a little challenging, but if you've baked before and know your way around an oven, you'll love this book.

    Over the years, we've made dozens and dozens of cupcakes from this book. The results are delicious, better than many dairy-full cupcakes. My (definitely not vegan) sister just called to get some recipes from this book. Chocolate cupcakes with mint frosting is my favorite.
