…or “Cran This in Your Pie Hole” 😉 Summer is almost over, there’s just no sense in kidding myself any more. As a final hurrah however, I’m bringing you some deliciously refreshing, creamy (possibly also boozy? And by possibly, I mean most definitely 😉 ) custard pops. The dream of these came fairly fully formed […]

Farewell Olympics 2016 – I will freely admit that I did not watch even one single event, but I’m sure you were great. Uh, go Canada??!!! (How did we do anyway? Good? ….ok, I just looked it up because I was super embarrassed about my complete lack of enthusiasm and/ or knowledge on the Olympic […]

I hope you’re not the kind of person who has completely despised my random themed months, because we arrive at yet another one! Aren’t you excited???!!! I can practically feel your heart racing in anticipation from here (either that or you just drank too much caffeine this morning 😉 ). Either way, I won’t keep […]

Well, if you’re me, you might also end up eating a bunch of your freely acquired and provided-by-life lemons straight up, but if you have a lot of them, then I suppose one could also work them into a pie, or a tart…or something 😉 . As a kid, lemon meringue pie was probably one […]

Ok, it’s been awhile (an incredibly long while I know), since my first attempt at macarons. Since that time, I have made the wonderful discovery of a new, ingenious way of creating vegan meringue. The reality is, I first read/ heard about this not that long after my first macaron attempt, but for some reason, I’ve […]

I really made that sound appetizing didn’t I? 😉 It’s truly a gift, please, hold your applause. So, as I’ve mentioned many a time, I’m a huge peanut butter lover. It’s no surprise then that peanut butter balls are a staple during Christmas baking season. Once Christmas is over however, the poor delicately delicious peanut […]

We made it through another year! As a side note, I’ve now officially passed the one year mark of bloggerdom! (is that a thing? Sure it is 😉 ). To be perfectly honest, I did not think I had it in me to post weekly for a month let alone a whole year, so huzzah […]

Alright, we’ve reached the final beverages post for the month! For those of you who are anti liquid-ites, you’re terrible suffering will shortly come to an end. Now I can’t believe the first three posts were alcohol free either, but obviously at least one of these would be required to include some sort of intoxicating substance […]

Éclairs!!! I feel like I’m super embracing my French background this year what with the macrons, the madeleines, meringues, crème brulée and now éclairs? I probably should’ve forgone doing something French in favour of doing something from….well…anywhere else really. But is it really my fault that the French know their desserts? Why should I punish […]

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.
