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.Read more ›
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 sweets...you 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.
So...my 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.
