Unfortunately I'm very familiar with Babycakes store and their cookbook. I had purchased their vegan cupcakes and other baked goods several times, and I always enjoyed them, although they are somewhat pricey. A little over a year ago I decided to buy their cookbook from their store to make my own. I went to my local health food store and purchased may of the main ingredients listed, spending at least $100, and proceeded to make some. The first was a fiasco, the cake part of the cupcake was hard and dry, and the frosting never thickened enough to use, it was a grainy liquidy mess. I tried two different recipes and they were also horrible. The cookbook is a fraud. I am an experienced cook and baker and have never failed to prepare any recipe I tried; until this book. It was a big waste of money and time. If you look at the reviews on Amazon, the vast majority of them trash the book. I made the mistake of not reading online reviewes before buying the book and all the ingredients which I'm unlikely to use for other purposes. But I never bought a scam cookbook before. Apparently the owner/author Erin didn't want to share her recipies, which is her prerogative, but they why sell a cookbook with bogus recipies?
