The vegan world is all a twitter over the release of Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and with good reason. We love us some cupcakes so like many other sweet-toothed vegans out there we had to buy a copy of this book. We started at the beginning with the vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting, then branched out to the cookies and cream because, well... OK I admit it, I'm addicted to Newman O's. I'm no psychic but I think some weight gain is in our future.

yum yum yum!
I haven't made any yet ... I'm still just enjoying the idea of it. I'm sure I'll get started sometime soon.

Funny, I just got some new cookbooks too: Vegan Italiano, Cupcakes, and Dreena's "Everyday Vegan"... It's overwhelming!

Ahhh! Cupcakes everywhere! You all are going to cause me to break down and get that book, even though cupcakes are the LAST thing I need to have around the house! :)

I really like your blog--I'm going to link you.

PS--The ones with the cookies on top look decadent!

Hey Amey! One of our new books is Everyday Vegan too! We got it at the same time as the cupcake book so we could get the free shipping from Amazon. (I know... that's how they get ya.) I think the first thing we're going to try from there are the tofu "neat" balls.

Thanks Laura! We don't need cupcakes around the house either but they're so fun to make and so good to eat. I gave some to our neighbor but we still have too many left here. I want to start bringing them to work to wow all the omnis.

thanks for stopping by Allie. We're lovin the book so far. and I'm with you urban vegan - there really isn't a recipe in there I don't think I'd like. So you're right Teddy, maybe a little extra cupcake weight for the winter'd be just fine.
