I would like to second another reviewer who pointed out that the recipes don't ask you to use egg replacers or other "substitutions" common in vegan baking (usually because someone is trying to veganize a non-vegan recipe); instead, the recipes are just designed vegan from the ground up, and call for simple ingredients that anyone would have (oil, baking powder, etc.). Also, there are tons of beautiful color pictures of finished cupcakes throughout, which is one of the most important things about a cookbook, to me. Then, too, they suggest enough variations on each cupcake recipe (there's 6 suggested ways to dramatically alter the chocolate cupcake recipe alone) that this book will keep you occupied for quite a long time.
Since every baker likes a little external validation, here's mine: I have gotten absolute raves on every cupcake I have made so far, and most of these raves were from non-vegans who were comparing my vegan cupcakes with regular [non-vegan] cupcakes. For example, last night I fed a chocolate cupcake with cookies 'n cream frosting (vegan buttercream frosting with Newman's O's mixed in... this is a recipe from the book, obviously) to a friend who didn't just enjoy it, but was absolutely WOWED. "Geeze, it's amazing what they're doing without dairy or eggs these days; these are better than regular cupcakes" was one comment that I particularly appreciated because most vegan desserts can taste good, but in my experience it's the rare vegan dessert that can taste identical or even BETTER than the regular omni thing.
I would recommend this book to anyone, vegans and omni's alike, because even if you're not vegan (or lactose intolerant), the cupcakes taste fabulous. The recipes are so simple they're basically idiot-proof, and I have seriously never in my life had better chocolate cupcakes than the ones I made from this book: moist and fluffy and ooh... just perfect. And I'm not even a chocolate person.
Anyway, do yourself (and everyone in your life who will be eating your baked goods) a favor and buy this wonderful book! I'd give it 10 stars if they'd let me...

As with Vegan Cookies, Vegan Cupcakes Is NOT a health food book. It’s a baking book, a cupcake book, and not a healthy cupcakes book, but a book about how to make delicious and decadent cupcakes the way we’re used to. It’s a book full of classic recipes and innovative ones. Stuff that’ll really knock the socks off even your most die-hard omnivore friends. I know, because I’ve done it. I’ve made many a cupcake from this book, and impressed all of my omnivore friends and family, never one complaint and always requests to bake them more!
Like Vegan cookies this is a lovely little book with a great lay-out and beautiful photography. Not every cupcakes has a photo but the photos that do exist are beautiful and mouth-watering. Isa and Terry detail their instructions in a clear and concise way that is easy to follow. They make it easy for novice bakers and their wit and sarcasm make it fun for old-hands. Really I think there is something for everyone in this book, and even though I use a lot of different books for baking, this is one of my all-time favorites. I wouldn’t hesitate to gift it to a vegan friend or omnivore friend. I only wish I had more time - and more room in my stomach - to make every recipe, but so far I’ve made the following.
