Celebs like actor Jason Schwartzman, Alicia Silverstone, and homemaker guru Martha Stewart have all shown love for BabyCakes bakery, the vegan, gluten-free dessert mecca with locations in New York and Los Angeles. But if you don’t live in one of those cities, or would like to try a vegan recipe on your own, then you are in luck!

The owner of BabyCakes, Erin McKenna, is about to release her second book, chock full of yummy recipes, BabyCakes Covers the Classics.

Dale Goldberg of Publishers Weekly tried out one of the recipes from the book, and while he isn’t a vegan and was suspicious of an animal-friendly cookie, the reviewer stated, “I admit that I lowered my expectations a little for these snickerdoodles, thinking they might be good for gluten-free vegan cookies, but that they wouldn’t compare to ‘regular’ cookies.” He then added, “I was surprised by how wrong I was. These cookies are incredible.”

A glowing review from a vegan-cookie-convert at Publishers Weekly sounds good to us! The book is set to hit shelves on April 12, 2011, but if you need your sugar fix sooner you can check out the snickerdoodle recipe, published in full, here.

    This is bad. I already go to Babycakes about twice month. When this book comes out, I just know I won’t be able to resist from buying it. I’ll never stop eating, because it is so delicious.

    Hopefully it’s better than the 1st cookbook. So many people have had problems with the recipes.
