Death by chocolate, is there really any way to go that sounds sweeter? Maybe drowning in boiling melted chocolate would not be so great due to the whole burning your flesh thing (and also, you’d likely get chocolate up your nose and that just sounds both unpleasant and incredibly wasteful 😉 ). So my book […]

See? Didn’t I promise you no more peanut butter? (well…not no more ever, just not this week. Don’t be crazy 😉 ). I’m a super fan of citrus, so I might be a little biased here (I eat straight lemons (although maybe not? They don’t share their sexuality with me before I devour them 😉 ) […]

Have you been thinking to yourself recently “I just don’t have enough peanut butter in my life?” I mean sure, you can put it on toast, and I’m sure you’ve consumed the odd peanut butter ball, but have you found yourself in the position of thinking “Yeah, that’s enough peanut butter”? Because it never is […]

This week is hands down the best tasting of my “trompe l’oeil” desserts to date. The pound cake I used for the sandwich “bread” was amazing. I think the loaf of pound cake was actually supposed to be much larger then it ended up being. Possibly because I kept tasting the raw batter and “accidentally” […]

We all know that I clearly have no illusions about this being a “healthy” blog. Despite common misconceptions, just because something is vegan does not mean it’s healthy. Now can we all please pass this message on to the blogosphere and/or the internet/world in general? To be perfectly honest, I’m sure more people would come […]

Ok, I know I said a couple of weeks ago that I was willing to admit that summer was over and I should get on the fall train, and chew chew chew my way to more autumnal based desserts (well, maybe I didn’t use those exact words, but you get the idea 😉 ). However, […]

…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 […]

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.
