Deep Space Wine

December 03 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Brownies, Cake, Cupcakes, Icing

Let’s pretend we’re classy here for a week OK? OK. How do we do that you ask? I think if you douse anything in enough wine (provided you don’t tell anyone it came from a box), only a fool would think it hadn’t become a little more artsy and high brow. Now I know I’ve […]

The final week of single serve! I don’t know what it is about the final week of one of my nonsensical themed months, but they always make me a bit sad ๐Ÿ™ . It’s amazing how attached one can get to a ridiculous gimmick in such a short span of time. There is no time […]

I am definitely a person who has a not-so-secret love affair with liquid smoke. I don’t know what it is about it, but it makes me swoon rapturously, and I am admittedly pretty heavy handed with it if I’m making soups, stews or chilis (particularly if I won’t be foisting it upon other people. This […]

More cake! I know, I should’ve made this a layer cake themed month, I just didn’t realize I’d have so many opportunities to make full on cakes and take them places! September for the win! (too many exclamation marks in a row? Yes. Since you’re already judging me – !!!!!!!!!!!! – just had to get […]

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). So my book […]

A pun by any other name would….well probably be better than this one, so there’s that. This week, I’m going to bring you what I’m going to call the “real estate agent” version of dessert bait and switch (except in a good way I promise! ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Because I know what you’re thinking…”Amber, do you […]

Week two!! I know, youโ€™re super excited, I can feel it from here. The air is practically palpable with your barely contained exuberance. Just breathe, we still have two more weeks after this one, so reserve at least some of your enthusiasm for future posts ๐Ÿ˜‰ . I know I said last week that I […]

What is a person to do when they make a recipe and realize they ended up with way way too much leftover icing? My usual go-to method in this situation is to put it in my coffee for a week or so until it’s used up (makes for some surprisingly delicious and strange flavour combinations, […]

So I came across the idea for these from one of the random cooking / baking shows that I’m obsessed with (do I remember which one? Of course not ๐Ÿ™ I have a sneaking suspicion that it was from the couple of episodes of “The Great Australian Bake Off” that I watched after my sadness […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau. ย 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. ย 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. ย To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
