I know, I know, now you think you’ve accidentally stumbled upon the complete opposite of a vegan dessert blog. Since when does avian murder find its place in this sweet cruelty-free world? I’ll break it down for you. Believe it or not, “killing two birds with one stone” is actually a supposedly well-known expression meaning […]

I would like to officially invite you all to Dessert Mashup Month! (or, in case you only know it by it’s other more “traditional” name,…May 😉 ). What is Dessert Mashup Month you ask? Well in case my photographic (in)abilities haven’t given you a hint, it’s where we over here at Sweet Ultimatums combine two, two, […]

Viva Las Puffs

May 03 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Candy, Cookies

Or, what happens in vegan marshmallow cookies stays in….err, gets shared with everyone? 😉 Shouldn’t that really be Las Vegas’ slogan in this day and age anyway? I think we’re closer to living in a Big Brother-esque society than we’ve ever been, so keeping anything secret seems virtually impossible. Which is why I totally can’t […]

Cottage season is almost upon us, and I’ve finally had it with my inability to toast marshmallows over the fire anymore 🙁 . When Kevin and I first bought our tiny cabin in the woods in 2011, roasting things over a roaring flame was, to me, by far the best part. So much so that […]

Even I’m saying “groan” about that title, I’m just off my game in the pun department this week. Feel free to offer your own (presumably much better) hazelnut and/or date related puns in the comments below 🙂 . These little doozies have no added sugar if you care about such things. Which of course is not […]

Spring!!! There was a small part of me that was tempted to leave the entire blog post at that, and then maybe just have a picture of me running outside with glee and joy (we can go outside again!), but fear not dear reader, I will still regale you with my usual weekly nonsense (but […]

Le sigh. I’m in need of better puns, I’ve most definitely gotten lazy of late. Anyhow, obviously I wanted to make something in honour of Easter. Of course, as per my usual inability to be in-season and with it (which takes me back to my not-at-all-cool high school days. Plaid shirts and crop tops anyone?), […]

As the ides of March (aka March 15th) flew past this month, it took me back to my grade nine high school Latin class with the renowned Mr.Keys. Now there was a man with a true mastery of the pun. He could take the lowliest of puns/jokes and spin them out into epic tales that spanned a ridiculous […]

Pecan Pi R squared

March 22 , 2015 by Amber Trudeau - in Pie

Happy (belated) Pi Day! Yes, yes, I know I’m way past the date at this point, but what can I say? For me, every day is a reason to celebrate with pie, so it’s way too easy for March 14th to slip by me unnoticed. Also, there’s 3 big days in a row, so it’s hard […]

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.

Have a challenge for me? Send me a note:
