I was very happy to get the new recipe book by Ms Cupcake “The Naughtiest Vegan Cakes in Town”, I have been looking forward to it for a while, ever since I ordered some of her cookies and cakes on line. The recipe book covers cupcakes, muffins, tray bakes, large cakes, cookies, muffins and so much more. It all looks really yummy.
I have had a good look through and I am impressed. This book is great if you are just starting out vegan baking or as a veteran baker it has lots of new ideas to try that I have not seen before.
The book starts with a basic run down of ingredients and how they work, it is so useful to have this as some recipe books use strange sounding ingredients and methods. There are also gluten free and diet restriction alternatives. There is a trouble shooting section which explains what can go wrong with suggestions on how to fix it.
The recipes are very easy to follow and the recipes have lots of hints and tips to make things look and taste great. Plus there is plenty of little helpful notes from Ms Cupcake herself (Mellissa).
I am so looking forward to trying out some of the recipes very soon. The one that took my fancy is the Vegan Lemon Curd, I used to love that when I was younger, so it will be lovely to have that again. Also I have never made a really good vegan cookie, so I will probably try that first. I will add another article when I have tried some of the recipes. But I must say that this is my new favourite vegan baking book.
The book is launched May 9th 2013, sold at good book sellers including Amazon.
Please note that my reviews are always honest and unbiased, however I feel it only right to point out that Ms Cupcake did supply this product for me to review.
