…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 […]

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 […]

I’ve been having this weird hankering the past couple of months for Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal. Now I realize that for most people, they would simply go out and purchase their hearts desire, possibly consume it all in one sitting and then move on with their lives. In case you haven’t learned yet though, I’m […]

When I first stumbled upon a cookie recipe incorporating tahini, I thought to myself “whoa dude, isn’t that like, the stuff that I love to slather on falafel pitas and other such savoury delicacies?” (apparently I also decided to embrace my inner surfer while contemplating my usage of tahini. Because, you know, surfer’s are extremely […]

Recycling? Me? 😉 Trust me though, this is the kind of recycling even the most notorious climate change denier can get behind. Remember last week when we made those peanut butter sandwich cookies with the chocolate hazelnut spread? Yeah, they were gone so fast that they’re barely a twinkle in my eye still either. Fear […]

Unless you guessed homemade Nutella (err….homemade chocolate hazelnut spread. Can I be sued for using the word Nutella here? Let’s keep our collective fingers crossed and hope not 😉 ), at which point you would be right. I have no idea how you managed to crack my diabolically complicated cipher in that headline, but well […]

Ok, I’ll be the first to admit that the photo does not make this look like the most appetizing thing in the world. For presentation here, I most definitely get a score of negative a million (or thereabouts). But rest assured dear reader, it tastes much, much better than it seems when first meets the […]

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.
