Good things come in small packages

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero, is a little book with a lot of heart. It was published in 2006, and I’ve had it about as long. But my bakeware went on hiatus. Why?!

Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World

Headline on back cover: Prepare for total cupcake domination

A family member’s birthday this month called for eggless cupcakes. The cupcake pan came out of hiding. The book too.

I adapted the vegan recipe for Pistachio Rosewater Cupcakes pictured on the front cover. Kept them eggless but used milk, butter, and vanilla-flavored yogurt. Instead of the fluffy buttercream frosting pictured, I chose the rosewater glaze. Eat-with-a-spoon good!

The authors call these petite treats the “the perfect finale to a lavish Persian feast.” Studded with pistachios and scented with rosewater and cardamom, they were a fitting end to the Indian meal that day.

Pink sugar crystals and chopped pistachios make for hap-hap-happy.

Time to make a wish!
