Just to entice you further, here is a sneak peek at one of the 75 recipes
in Isa and Terry’s book.
We may be city girls but we love us some campfires. And not just because
we like to steal people’s bras and hide them in trees. These
cupcakes will bring out the rustic survivalist in you—the rustic
survivalist that knows scrumptious cupcakes.

3 T. Soy Creamer or Soymilk
1/3 C. Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips

Vegan Fluffy Buttercream Frosting
1⁄2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Shortening
1⁄2 C. Non-Hydrogenated Margarine (we use Earth Balance)
3 1⁄2 C. Confectioners’ Sugar, sifted if clumpy
1 1⁄2 t. Vanilla Extract
1⁄4 C. Plain Soymilk or Soy Creamer
Beat shortening and margarine together until well combined and fluffy. Add sugar
and beat for about 3 more minutes. Add vanilla and soymilk, beat for another
5 to 7 minutes or so until fluffy.
Spread or pipe a thick layer of Vegan Fluffy Buttercream Frosting onto each cupcake.
We like to use a wide decorating tip to create a swirly mountain of yumminess.
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over the frosting. Drizzle with ganache or sprinkle
with shaved chocolate and stick a graham cracker into each cupcake. You can eat
immediately for the authentic s’mores warm chocolate thing or allow to
set. It tastes yummy either way.
