Amazing German Chocolate Vegan Cupcakes

Last year David said he'd like a carrot cake but because he's vegan, I got very nervous and ended up buying him one from PCC. Everything changed this year when my boss, Nick, let me borrow Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World: 75 Dairy-Free Recipes for Cupcakes that Rule. The recipes weren't scary and I already owned most of the ingredients. This year I would not wimp out!
One afternoon when David was walking past my desk I handed him the cookbook. "Pick anything. Choose whatever you want," I said proudly. "I'll make it!" David looked a little giddy, "Really? Wow. " A few hours later he surrendered and said everything looked good and gave me his blessing to pick whatever I wanted to make. With Nick's prodding I decided to make the Basic Chocolate Cupcake recipe with the German Chocolate frosting.

The recipe, as basic as it was, was a bit viscous. I was sure that I had done something wrong and they wouldn't look like the pictures in the book. But after exactly 18 minutes at 350F, they were perfect. And the frosting was easy and probably the best Coconut Pecan frosting I have ever had. The only mistake I made was that I didn't make enough! I made two dozen and probably should have made double that. Everyone loved them!

Happy Birthday David! Thank you for helping me face my vegan baking fears. Now I want to make every recipe in this cookbook! Oh and out of respect for the authors and copyright laws, I've decided not to post the recipes that I used. I just don't feel that it's right. You can find this book at Amazon, any bookstore, or at your local library. Be sure to check it out!
