I always forget I have this book (see previous entry about searching for a birthday cake recipe). Which is dumb because every time I open it, I find 6 more recipes I want to try—S’mores Cupcakes anyone? Yes, please!
My brain always turns on at some point, and I remember the awesomeness that is this book. Take this butter-free chocolate buttercream frosting for example. You start making it and you think how is this sticky mess going to turn into anything spreadable? Beat a minute or two longer and you have fluffy, creamy, you would never know it has no butter, buttercream frosting.
Like the coffee at Starbucks this frosting can be transformed into whatever flavor you want it to be. Want mocha? Add a teaspoon of coffee extract. Peppermint? A 1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract will take you there. Or simply chocolate is good too.

It is highly unusual to find such divine goodness in vegan baked goods but Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero make magic with their book Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World.
