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.

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.
