Anyone who did not get the Die Hard movie reference, I oh-so-politely demand that you watch this video asap (even better of course would be to watch the movie. Or movies? Farrah – remember our Die Hard Trilogy fest? (because it was still just a trilogy at the time….as it maybe should’ve remained in my humble […]

These were not intended to be blondies. Not even sort-of. The original intention was to make salted caramel ice cream fudge bars – not like ice cream bars, totally fridge stable and more like regular fudge, but with a base made of one of my more favourite-iest vegan ice creams (the So Delicious Salted Caramel […]

Yeah! A reason to use the madeleines tin I bought last year! I was really into making them when I first bought it (I think in the first week I owned it, I made madeleines like four times). Then I basically forgot about it, and have now opted to allow it a resurgence so that […]

I know I’ve a had few times on this blog where I’ve mentioned that I’m not always the biggest cake fan (although that is more because most cakes have one (or more) of the following issues in my personal opinion. 1. Too dry, 2. Too dense (but not in a good, fudgey brownie way, more […]

…or rum raisin’ the bar because man, these are so so good (really Amber – don’t sugar coat it, tell us how you really feel you modest modest baker you 😉 ). Here’s the thing though, in the interest of each “ice cream” flavoured cake post being slightly different, I wanted to do a different form of […]

What would a month worth of ice cream flavoured cakes be without actually consuming said cake out of an actual ice cream cone? Luckily, I’m here to save the day and provide you with this option. Portable, whimsical, and deliciously bite sized (if you’re down with using mini ice cream cones anyway. Feel free to […]

It’s actually shocking and amazing to me that I’ve even made these cupcakes this week if I’m being perfectly honest with you. Let me start by saying that the Neapolitan cake from last week had me deciding that I wanted to make cakes/ cupcakes based on classic and nostalgic flavours (so I’m sorry to disappoint […]

Welcome! Welcome! We have arrived at yet another random themed month! The entire reason this month exists was because I wanted to make a 3 layer cake with all different flavours. Well… I suppose this month would still exist – I mean, it’s unlikely the universe would’ve just completely skipped the month of June (which is […]

….but mini cupcakes are apparently ok 😉 . I don’t really know what my deal is with cupcakes/ cake. It’s definitely not really my favourite dessert. However, I understand it’s portability and variability so I can see why other people consider it the dessert of champions (although I’m sure that actual champions don’t regularly partake in dessert. Or […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau.  I bake.... a lot.

I'm also vegan, and found that whenever I went out to a restaurant my dessert choices were limited to sorbet, sorbet, and sorbet.  So I started making my own desserts. I wanted them to taste good though - so my ultimatum was to make delicious desserts that also happen to be dairy-free and egg-free. Every week or so, I challenge myself to try something new.  To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
