That’s right folks, you get double the puns for the price of one! I mean, can you really have too much pun(s)? Of course not – that was clearly a rhetorical question ūüėČ . I will have you know however, that that double punning wasn’t done just for the joy of it, but because I’m […]

I am super in love with these. I know you probably have just stopped believing me on that front by now because I say it so often it’s lost all meaning.¬†However, I don’t understand what’s not to like here. This week I’m actually incorporating¬†two different condiments. Double the chance for disaster? Of course. But, despite […]

A Boy Named Tiramisu

December 31 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Bars, Candy

I mean, who¬†wouldn’t want that for a name? Oh Johnny Cash, things could’ve been so different for your titular song character if only a “Tira-” had been added to his name. There’s a reason people always nickname their loved ones after delicious treats (Sweetie Pie, Sugar, Honey, Babe….uh…that last one might mean your loved one […]

With the release of the most recent Star Wars movie, I thought I’d pay h√īmage to the overall cannon of celestial movies and crank out this epic, Russian-doll style peanut butter ball. That’s right people, this is a peanut butter ball, inside of a peanut butter ball, inside of¬†another peanut butter ball, and all surrounded […]

I totally haven’t even read this book, and its topic seems a little too serious-sauce for my usual attempts at whimsy, but I loved how much the name fit, so deal with it ūüėȬ† (my alternative name was “Magic (Bar) Mike” Thoughts? Feel free to vote on a preference, being sure to indicate how awesome […]

Yeah!!! New themed month. You know you’re excited, stop trying to act like you’re too cool to express emotions (unless you’re Data of course, at which point, I¬†suppose I could let it slide. Yes, it’s true, aren’t you proud of me Kevin? I made a Star Trek reference. I never thought I’d see the day […]

Remember the Fresh Prince of Bel Air? I still know all the words to the theme song. Some might be embarrassed about that, but I wear it like a badge of pride. Remember the episode where they changed to a new Aunt Viv? I loved that they actually addressed the fact that she was new: […]

Because this will definitely make you feel like you’re in heaven/aka on a fluffy cloud of deliciousness in the sky. I don’t know what I’m saying, but the real point here is, despite the fact that this cake¬†technically started off as a bit of a disaster for me (a bit more on that later since […]

More peanuts/peanut butter???!!! Seriously Amber, get a room ūüėČ . OK, I promise I’ll do something not peanut butter related for next week, but stick with me here, because these are actually totally different from anything else peanut buttery that I’ve done before. I mean look at those innocent looking candy cups of joy! They […]

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.
