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 […]

….because these babies are magic! So I guess I’m in some kind of weird nostalgic for Christmas (or at least Christmas treats!) mode. The faux peanut butter balls last week are probably what got me thinking about the other Christmas delectables that I make. This brought me to thinking about my maple cream cookies…and how […]

Well colour me embarrassed. After going on that ridiculously long rant the other week about muffins and how ridiculous they are, we now find ourselves with another muffin post (*blush*). I have no real defence except that making those blueberry oregano muffins reminded me of an old recipe I used to like as a kid […]

Or “Here’s the Scoop: I Came Up with this on the Fry” Dear Mashup Month, Today, I elevate you to a whole new level of mashup-y-ness in addition to combining you with a soupçon of high school nostalgia. Please just accept this honour and embrace being delicious. Sincerely yours, Amber The other day, for some […]

Although our freezer isn’t yet completely devoid of Christmas cookies, I couldn’t wait any longer to make something. I’ve had so many ideas rattling around in my brain that if I didn’t do something soon, some of them would probably have been lost to time completely and never been made 🙁 They never would’ve felt the […]

CAUTION: The following post contains “bear” nudity. I recommend skipping this one if you’re easily offended. Now that those prudes have left the page, for the rest of you, on with the post! This month for bookclub was our annual “beach read” book, so we were reading Summer Girls by Mary Alice Monroe. Loving a theme […]

Vegan Dessert - Mcdonalds

Mmmm…burgers? What are these doing in a vegan dessert blog? It’s because they’re actually dessert! Burger patties are made of dates,figs, raisins and coconut and then I cooked them on the stove to give them that burger-y look…Buns made of vanilla-almond cupcakes. There’s a “cheese sauce” base made of tofutti cream cheese+icing sugar and orange […]

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.
