Gosh!  You guys are all so helpful!  I posted this topic on another websites forum and no one seemed to care.  Everyone here is so welcoming and nice compared to other website message boards I've read.  I got my "Sinfully Vegan" cookbook in the mail today so now I'm all hyped up about baking something!  Becoming vegan has really opened my eyes to what I put in my body and has educated me more about different kinds of fats and stuff like that.  The only thing that is in my way is the fact that a lot of the things I need for the recipes are pretty expensive, and I'm a poor college student.  I will probably try to experiment with cheaper substitutions (bananas, applesauce, etc) before I buy a lot of the expensive stuff. Keep the good advice coming!

I've always just used water, not coffee-- but I like to do up fancy frostings in mocha, peanutbutter, almond, raspberry, etc.

PB frosting is especially easy as you can just whip pb directly into powdered sugar, and drip soy/rice/almond milk (or water) in til it reaches the right consistency.

A note on powdered sugars: powder your own using the blender!  That way you can use fructose crystals or organic cane sugar-- something that doesn't use animal bones to make it shiny white.

thanks for the tip susan! and in response to your question goddess- I genearally use coffee, but water works out fine if you don't have or don't drink coffee. once I was jonsin' for some vegan chocolate cake so bad that I would not let the fact that I didn't have any vanilla extract stop me from baking one.  I just added some cinnamon instead... this recipe is nearly foolproof!
