A really fun little book - so far, I have made two kinds of cupcakes, and three kinds of frosting from the book. Both cupcake recipes were delicious, and two of the three frostings were *great*.

I realize that vegan baking is a exercise in creativity and there is a true art to substitution... but I couldn't help but think that there may have been some other subs for all of the soy products and the sugars in the book. I used almond and hazelnut milk in place of the soy and had very good results. I also cut the sugar amounts in half on the frostings and they were still very sweet and perfect for the recipe.

All in all, it is a great book and one that I will turn to for years to come for quick delicious recipes for myself and for all my friends - vegan or not!

Leeann I haven't seen this book yet, but from vegan recipes I've looked up I share your concern about all the soy & other "imitation" dairy/egg-replacement products. Somewhere out there there must be a vegan sweets cookbook that's more focused on natural ingredients. If you find it please share. :)
