Vegan Cupcakes Took Over Our World

Childhood is time for discovery, fun, play and lets face it – cupcakes. Just when I had settled in with the idea that my daughter would spend her childhood without the moist yummy goodness of a good cupcake, I discovered this little book and it turned it all around for me. While the book is not an allergen free cookbook and includes numerous recipes with nuts, it demonstrates great substitutes for eggs and dairy – I just leave out the nuts and nut extracts that many of the recipes call for. Some of the recipes are completely out of our reach, but for the most part Autumn can shop this little book for the perfect treat to make next. What more could we ask for? The photo here is a simple vanilla cupcake with some pink sprinkles inspired by this book.

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World
by Isa Chandra Moskowitz & Terry Hope Romero

This book returned a silver lining to our cupcake-less lives, and continuing to inspire our cooking adventures.
But…Watch out for ingredients – make sure they stay in line with your allergy concerns. When in doubt, leave it out.

    Best cupcake book EVER for food allergies!! Try her Vegan cookbook for great side dish ideas, etc. Also, not relevant to cupcakes, but if you haven’t tried Daiya shredded cheeses yet – please do. Finally, I can make my son “real” pizza with cheese that melts…they have cheddar and mozzarella versions that actually taste great! you can make mac and cheese, all kinds of stuff that used to be tough. And it makes the pizza birthday party issue that much easier!

      We just had that “cheese” today at lunch! Love the Mozzarella sprinkled over pasta. Autumn doesn’t like it melted… but her tastes change daily so I keep trying. For now she just likes her crust plain. We call it pizza toast 🙂

        LOVE it! Isn’t it amazing the stuff that they *will* eat?? I agree with what you said about the healthy eating…my son eats healthier than any kid I know…even my 2 year old who doesn’t have any allergies. Us allergy Moms do what we have to do to keep our kids safe and healthy and feel included – as long as my son is happy, I’m happy!!
