VegWeb has a ton of recipes too if you're not looking to purchase anything, and post punk kitchen is Isa's website (which has a nice gathering of recipes and reviews).
Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World is a good book to check out on the subject
There's a recipe here in Peggy's Kitchen for an Applesauce Cake that I've made a ton over the years. It's vegan and awesome.
I have been searching for the same thing for my daughter's birthday...my problem isn't so much the cake part, but the frosting. I have tried a few different vegan frostings and they tasted horrible.
here's the grit vegan buttercream frosting recipe (it's over the top):
1 c. vegan marg (softened)
2 1-lb. boxes of powdered confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2-3 tbsp soymilk or water
cream the margarine then add the sugar cup by cup, mixing as you go. then add vanilla, and the soy milk or water (you can add more liquid if it's too thick).
