"The first vegan winner of Cupcake Wars--and of any reality cooking show!--Chef Chloe, author of the popular Chloe's Kitchen, brings her signature creativity and fun to the best part of every meal: Dessert!Chloe's fantastic-tasting, beautiful desserts are what first got her national media attention when she wowed the judges on Food Network's Cupcake Wars. And her famous desserts are what her enthusiastic fans always demand. Now Chef Chloe offers her first all-dessert cookbook--and you will just not believe these delicious dishes are vegan. Instead of relying on the tofu, applesauce, egg replacer, and mashed bananas that many other vegan cooks use, Chloe works a different kind of food science magic, with liquid proportions and leaveners like baking soda and vinegar to make cakes rise and remain moist and to give her food a texture and taste that vegans and non-vegans alike crave. Go ahead and lick that spoon! There're no worries when you cook vegan. Chloe re-creates classic desserts and treats from crÈme brulee to tiramisu to beignets as well as store-bought favorites--made with a humorous taste twist--like her ChloeO-type Oreos and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies. Chloe also serves up brand-new triumphs like her dreamy Lemon Olive Oil Cake with Rosemary Ice Cream, Coconut and Chocolate Cream Pies, Coconut Sorbet with Cashew Brittle, and a dozen innovative cupcake creations. Who can possibly resist? With 100 fabulous, easy-to-make recipes and gorgeous color photography, Chloe's Vegan Desserts is the next great innovative baking and dessert book with a universal appeal"

not very good

I was very excited about this new book. I own the author's previous book, and it is excellent. The recipes in her previous book are no fail and spot-on with measurements and flavors. This new books seems to have been rushed. I have tried the brownie recipe and the New York coffee cake recipe and both were terrible. The brownies had way too much oil and the coffee cake had way to much topping--I hope/suspect it is a typo. Many of the recipes are filler like pie crust and cobbler or are repeats of previous recipes. Overall, a great disappointment.

so good

Delicious!

Oh, Chloe! Your desserts are so fabulous! I made the Bollywood cupcakes (saffron in the cake, cardamom in the frosting) two weeks ago and the Salted Caramel cupcakes last week in their gluten-free forms - both were really good. The Salted Caramel ones even passed inspection with a non-gluten-free non-vegan! The cupcakes are really quite delicate so make sure you don't overfill your liners, otherwise there won't be enough support to keep them from collapsing. Also, I generally find that I can halve the frosting recipe and still have enough to frost a full batch of cupcakes (a goodly sized shmear, but not a mountain of frosting like on the cover!).

Update: I tried making the chocolate chip cookies. Failed miserably. They tasted fine, but they came out flatter than a pancake. Also didn't get great results with the Vermont Maple Cookies, but I'm willing to partly blame that on the kind of maple syrup I used. However, the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are AMAZING!!
