Book Description

Feb. 21 2012

A Food Network Cupcake Wars winner shares her scrumptious recipes in a new cookbook that has vegans and omnivores alike clamoring for more.

When Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats opened in 2002, it instantly became one of the most popular bakeries in D.C.-a bakery that just happens to be vegan. Soon, Sticky Fingers was voted D.C.'s best bakery by The Washington City Paper, and chef Doron Petersan found herself beating out traditional bakers on the Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

Sticky Fingers' Sweets is packed with one hundred of her beloved recipes- from indulgent snacks like Fudgetastic Brownies and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies to breakfast treats like Pecan Spice Coffee Cake and Cranberry Ginger Scones, and from celebratory desserts like Chocolate Seltzer Cake and Red Velvet Cupcakes to Sticky Fingers' most popular sweets- Little Devils, Cowvins, and Sticky Buns. Petersan also includes "love bite" nutritional tips and valuable tricks-of-the- trade techniques that every home baker will appreciate.

The number of people embracing a vegan lifestyle continues to grow. Like Erin McKenna's BabyCakes and Isa Chandra Moskowitz's bestselling cookbooks, Sticky Fingers' Sweets and Petersan's delectable-and secretly healthy-recipes will be greeted enthusiastically by anyone and everyone who loves to bake.

i have tried a few recipes, some where good but others were mediocre. It may just be my baking skills or lack of, however i was disappointed. I really enjoyed their cupcakes at their shop in DC and was hoping mine would be the same, but in the end thy weren't.

2.0 out of 5 stars Typos? Aug. 10 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Whenever we stop in DC we certainly help Sticky Fingers meet their financial goal for the day...walking out of the bake shop with so many items people have the right to stare (and the family nearly bursts into tears/has a tantrum if the Little Devils aren't available). Naturally, we pre-ordered this book as soon as it was announced.

Since its arrival, my wife and I have made four recipes and only one could we mark "delish." The classic vanilla cake was ok. The kiwi curd found its way directly to the compost pile. The creamy vanilla filling for the little devils is "delish," but the little devils themselves are nothing to talk about (over a year ago, using the ingredients list from a little devils' wrapper, I created my own and utterly fantastic version).

We can't help but wonder if this book is loaded with typos when it comes to quantities and dimensions. The little devils recipe calls for a 17x11 baking pan. The batter in no way comes close to needing that much room and as a result, you get a cookie-thin cake (yes, we followed the vinegar instructions). The kick in the pants...we could see what was going to happen, but we figured the winner of Cupcake Wars would know what she was talking about. Call us George W..."fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. Fool me -- you can't get fooled again." Yeah, that dumb.

Now, before you brush off our comments (we noticed a lot of the 5-stars were just going on about having the book, not necessarily making anything), we do bake, all the time. Unfortunately, thanks to Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, we are chubby vegans. We have NEVER had one of Colleen's recipe's go wrong, whether they come from The Joy of Vegan Baking or The Vegan Table. We've also had great success veganizing traditional recipes to the point where we are requested to make certain items (by NONvegans).

We will likely give this book a couple more tries (someone noted the Boston Creme cake was good. My wife grew up in MA and has great memories of good old Boston Cream Pies.). If these next recipes are a fail, this book will be out and we'll stick exclusively to Colleen's works (actually, we'll hide them until we've dropped a few pounds!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fantastic (with a caveat) Aug. 4 2012
By Laerkin - Published on
First of all, Doron is fantastic. She's sassy, creative, and ridiculously passionate about food chemistry stuff. I've taken two baking classes with her (and under her direction, I've made Brown Sugar cupcakes, Smores brownies, Strawberry Margarita cupcakes, and Mexican Chocolate cupcakes), so it was natural for me to purchase this book.

The first section is all about baking, chemistry, how various elements of baking work, and, most importantly, how vegan baking works. Understanding these principles means you'll have more confidence in the future if you want to try and convert other recipes into something vegan.

So far, I've made a handful of the recipes in the book.

First - they are always delicious.
Second - they aren't foolproof (while the champagne cupcake with passion fruit frosting was mindblowingly delicious, the cake came out a strange consistency that I wouldn't share with friends). I followed the directions to a T and I've had other vegan baking successes, so it was a tad disappointing.
Third - this book is gold for anyone who loves do NOT have to be vegan to enjoy these treats.

My other warning is that in both of the classes I took with Doron, she talked about recipe creation mistakes - servings being 10 times what they were supposed to, etc. Hearing these things makes me a little nervous about how comprehensive their recipe testing is at Sticky Fingers. It's always delicious, and I adore them more than words can say. However, I suspect the issue with the champagne cupcakes had more to do with the measurements included than my technique. advice is BUY THIS BOOK. COOK FROM THIS BOOK. DEVOUR EVERYTHING YOU MAKE FROM THIS BOOK. Just don't be surprised if one or two of the recipes yields something unexpected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Feb. 21 2012
By TheVegetarianShopper - Published on
I was so excited to get Doron's book! I pre-ordered it WAY back. Then I saw her article in Vegetarian Times and was delighted to get the chance to preview some of her recipes. The book is pretty amazing. I love how Doron is very specific in her directions - very specific! I tried the Boston Creme cupcakes and they were to die for. I seriously can't wait to try more - especially the whoopie pies! I love how she shares the recipes from her winning cupcakes from Cupcake Wars as well as the recipes that made her bakery famous, including some tasty looking sticky buns. I would have liked to have seen some more pictures, especially for the cake frosting directions, as they were a little complicated. I also was disappointed to see coffee in almost (not all) every recipe that involved chocolate cake. I am not a coffee drinker and hate the thought of adding extra caffeine to sweets; I wish there was an alternative to that besides decaf. Other than that, I am very pleased and cannot wait to try more recipes! I would LOVE to see a sequel ;)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Vegan Baking Book EVER! Feb. 20 2012
By BeingAliveNYC - Published on
I tried one of Doron's recipes out of Vegetarian Times for Valentine's Day (the Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting) and my very non-Vegan family LOVED them (didn't even realize that there weren't eggs/dairy in them). Her book is full of all sorts of wonderful baking, including pies, cakes, frostings, sticky buns, candies, and more! They are all animal-free and delicious! She also has some great tips for Vegan baking and cake decoration in the introduction. Definitely a must-have addition to your cookbook collection!

My non vegan friends love these recipes and beg for cookies and cupcakes I've made from this book. Easy to follow and no exotic ingredients required.
