I am super in love with these. I know you probably have just stopped believing me on that front by now because I say it so often it’s lost all meaning. However, I don’t understand what’s not to like here. This week I’m actually incorporating two different condiments. Double the chance for disaster? Of course. But, despite […]

Ok, so being the big liar that I am, I’m opting to do a “real” (aka what I’d actually intended to post last week) New Year’s post. It’s a week late technically, but if you really think about, today is actually my first post of 2018 so it’s really my first post of the New Year, so […]

A Boy Named Tiramisu

December 31 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Bars, Candy

I mean, who wouldn’t want that for a name? Oh Johnny Cash, things could’ve been so different for your titular song character if only a “Tira-” had been added to his name. There’s a reason people always nickname their loved ones after delicious treats (Sweetie Pie, Sugar, Honey, Babe….uh…that last one might mean your loved one […]

Deep Space Wine

December 03 , 2017 by Amber Trudeau - in Brownies, Cake, Cupcakes, Icing

Let’s pretend we’re classy here for a week OK? OK. How do we do that you ask? I think if you douse anything in enough wine (provided you don’t tell anyone it came from a box), only a fool would think it hadn’t become a little more artsy and high brow. Now I know I’ve […]

See? Didn’t I promise you no more peanut butter? (well…not no more ever, just not this week. Don’t be crazy 😉 ). I’m a super fan of citrus, so I might be a little biased here (I eat straight lemons (although maybe not? They don’t share their sexuality with me before I devour them 😉 ) […]

….or “After I Got Out From Behind Bars, I Was “Bour-Born” Again” 😉 I was so distraught and melancholy at the conclusion of Canada’s 150th dessert month, that there was only one way to drown my sorrows. You guessed it. Bourbon. But how to consume it midday (or early morning for that matter – I […]

Week two!! I know, you’re super excited, I can feel it from here. The air is practically palpable with your barely contained exuberance. Just breathe, we still have two more weeks after this one, so reserve at least some of your enthusiasm for future posts 😉 . I know I said last week that I […]

Thanks Kevin! This title was much better than my original “Wasted Away Again in Margarita(Truffle)Ville” – that just felt awkward. Puns just shouldn’t be forced am I right? 😉 Just do what comes natural that’s what I say. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a love-hate….actually, even that’s too generous – the truth […]

You can clearly see that I was kind of terrible on the dipping side of these truffles. Don’t worry, I’m sure that you’ll do a much better job than me. I was also visibly bad at cutting a truffle in half (see picture below). I was rushing and when I saw that I didn’t cut […]

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.
