“Another gem by Isa Moskowitz, this cupcake bible includes 75 different recipes for cupcake batter and frosting…Vegan Cupcakes will tantalize and inspire, especially with the beautiful photos of each recipe.”

The Auburn Citizen, 12/29/10
“Will satisfy almost everyone’s sweet tooth and visions of sugarplums.”
iVillage.com, 1/18/11“These [Peanut Butter] cupcakes are pushed to maximum peanuty capacity and still remain moist and fluffy. Chunky peanut butter, molasses and flaxseed give them an intense flavor and nutty texture.”
iVillage.com, 1/18/11
“[The Sexy Low-Fat Vanilla Cupcakes are] vanilla-scented gems.”

The RetailMeNot Insider, 5/23/11“Granted, these authors aren’t on restricted diets due to allergies or celiac disease, but their wildly inventive vegan desserts are dairy- and egg-free, and they have a whole section on how to make cookies without wheat.”

BizIndia.net, 11/21/11

VegNews, September/October 2012“Marks an important milestone for veganism in that it proved to the mainstream that vegan food can be awesome.”

VegNews, September/October 2014
“’Plant-based’ went from earnest to awesome with two words: vegan cupcakes. Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero started it all in 2006 with Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World—which, along with their 2007 Veganomicon—still leads the pack in vegan cookbook sales.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegan Cupcakes Have Taken Over My Kitchen! Nov. 18 2006
By S. Wise
I'm a huge fan of Vegan with a Vengeance, so it was only natural to buy this book too. It's a cute little book with lots of recipes for fun, creative and different cupcakes that are sure to wow anyone (even my non-vegan friends and family!). So far, I have made the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Cinnamon Icing and Brooklyn vs. Boston Cream Cupcakes. They are to die for. I've also made the Cookies and Cream variety, as well as the Chai Cupcakes - they are sooo good! The intro goes into detail about the tools and ingredients necessary for the best cupcakes, and also offers a troubleshooting guide. There are a number of photos in the book, and these photos convinced me to buy a pastry bag to try and achieve the same piped icing look! I highly recommend - vegan cupcakes are so fun and cute, and make a nice substitute for other desserts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ONLY Cupcake book you'll EVER NEED. Sept. 29 2008
What makes this book so much better than average is that Isa's recipes and instructions are clear, concise, and easy to follow. Better still, if you want to make an ingredient substitution, Isa often mentions which ingredients you MUST have on hand, in order for the cupcake's flavor to work out properly. Insights, tips & hints to the recipes are scattered throughout VCTOTW.

This book was my first(by authors Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero, and Sara Quin) and definetly not the last. In fact, I was so delighted with VCTOTW, that I bought the more recent Veganomicon. Every recipe Ive tried so far has been just as dependable as VCTOTW. So, In case you ever feel like eating dinner sometime, I highly recommend Veganomicon too.


Probably what sets these authors apart from ALL OTHER Vegan cookbook authors (and I mean ALL - I have many vegan, veggie books on my shelf), is that ...

#1, the recipes taste absolutely delicious (and not like traditional vegan food fare books)

#2 The recipes are dependable(you get what you are hoping for and not another vegan creation). As long as you "basically" follow the instructions, you'll be consistently rewarded for your efforts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrumptious, Never fail Recipes May 19 2009
I love this cookbook from small details like the pictures and the ease of use to significant inclusions of great trial-tested recipes that work for the beginning baker (Cake Princesses Unite!) I made the vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with vegan frostings in great quantities for a fund-raiser for the 3 Day Weekend to End Breast Cancer. The deliciousness of these cakes convinced dozens of non-vegans that vegan baking is not tasteless, dry or boring. And neither are their bakers!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love, love, LOVE this book!! Jan. 29 2010
By Lisa
I don't think I'll ever bake a non-vegan cupcake again! I'm not even vegan and I just LOVE this book. I bought Veganomicon hoping to try some new kinds of recipes that didn't always require the usual ingredients, milk, butter, eggs, etc. I have a million normal cookbooks so I decided to expand a little on variety. I LOVE all of the vegan cookbooks by Isa! I just ordered all the rest because I am so impressed with this one and the others I got from her. The vanilla cupcakes are just awesome! Moist, soft, great texture, easy to frost, not too delicate, and great flavour! No one could believe they had no eggs or butter in them. The variety of flavours in the book, plus all the frostings, I can't wait to try them all!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! Jan. 13 2008
I absolutely LOVE this cookbook. Every recipe I have tried has turned out just as amazing as they sound. Even my omnivorous roommates and friends love them and were shocked when they found out they were totally vegan. You don't need to be a vegan to enjoy this delicious and witty little book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome recipes May 28 2012
This is an awesome book. I bought it because I have an allergy to dairy and I was looking for easy, dairy-free recipes.

The basic recipes - chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, etc - are all very easy. I didn't have to go out and buy anything extra. There are some unusual, more complicated recipes but even many of those don't require much additional shopping.

I have so far tried about half the recipies in the book and they have all turned out beautifully. They are delicious and very popular amongst my friends, who cannot believe (and don't really care) that they are vegan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! May 7 2010
By Lee
I generally wait to give a rating to a cookbook until I've tried a number of recipes. I made the chocolate mint cupcakes (page 73) and took them to a party where they were a hit. 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.
