Cookbook shout out: Vegan Cupcake Take Over the World

I love baking.  I make an amazing chocolate chip cookie, however, that was before I began a vegan.  I now find I do not bake as much as a used to.  This is not because I don't enjoy it, but rather because I don't always have the time.  So I use any special occasion to bake.  My new obsession is Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World by Isa Chandra Moskowitx and Terry Hope. The book is full of creative and delicious cupcake recipes.  I have made a variety of different kinds and they have all been well received by vegans and non-vegans alike.
This week is the last week I will work at a job I have had for the past 2 1/2 years.  I am sad to leave my co-workers because they are great people, but excited doesn't begin to describe how I feel about the new opportunity that is on the horizon.  So as I said I use any excuse to bake these days, and my departure from work is a great reason to bake cupcakes as a farewell/goodbye to my colleagues.
This time I made the Marble and the Chocolate Stout cupcakes.  I am going to use their "Buttercream" Frosting to top them off, but even without the frosting they look delicious!

I can't wait to share them at work tomorrow.  This will be a particularly hard week so the sweet treats are needed as a little pick-me up.
