Ah crème brulée, is there anything that could sound less vegan if it tried? If you take away the cream, what do you have left? Not that there’s anything wrong with straight up burnt sugar (of course there isn’t! Who doesn’t love picking burnt sugar bits off a baking pan after you take cookies out of […]

….Based on this photo, I apparently can’t 🙁 I thought about not posting this one at all because they didn’t turn out quite the way I had envisioned them, but in the interest of full disclosure, I’ve decided I should post the not-as-successful attempts as well. About a week ago, I received my first submitted-through-the-website challenge […]

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 […]

I bring you both the legend, and a photo of the cookies in their “real-life” ready-to-be-transported form. I figured I would add multiple visuals of this eye “candy” for your drooling pleasure 🙂 (yes! a terrible pun that works on both levels!) Here’s the sneak preview of the Christmas cookie offerings for 2014 – I can’t […]

Kevin randomly said to me the other day that one of his favourite cookies growing up was the fig newton. First of all, I called bulls*** on that assertion straight to his face because I know him well enough to know, that if it doesn’t have chocolate or peanut butter (or even better, some combination […]

Sometimes I have way too many things that I want to make all at once and I find it difficult to determine which thing to bake. Do I want to go healthy(ish), or go for all out decadence? Will I have anywhere to bring said baked good afterwards and if so, what will this audience […]

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 desserts

I obviously always love the opportunity to create something new and unique in the dessert department, so Kevin’s birthday coming up was an excellent opportunity to flex my creative muscle. I figured I should offer him the opportunity to challenge me to make him something crazy (or just tell me what kind of flavours he’d […]

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.
