On My (Kitchen) Shelf: Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World

Ever wonder how to make delicious, petite desserts with nary a molecule of animal-derived foodstuffs? Sure you have. Well, thanks to Post Punk Kitchen hosts Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Romero, you can. Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World offers 75 recipes for moist, sweet, tasty cupcakes that just happen to be completely absent of dairy. I’m wearing out my copy—I can’t seem to stop myself from making cupcakes every other week or so.

The friends who gave me this cookbook even hosted a cupcake-baking party, during which we made, I don’t know, like, seven different kinds of cupcakes, including strawberry “tallcakes,” some nice red velvet numbers with the best icing ever, and tiramisu cupcakes.

This Christmas, your gift from me might be a batch of gingerbread cupcakes (with yummy crystallized ginger) with lemony buttercream icing. Just so you know.
