I can’t even tell you how long ago I even made these cupcakes (I believe it was possibly as long ago as 2019 since I obviously haven’t posted here in a million, billion years), but they were memorable . Deliciously, deliciously memorable. So much so, that I clearly had no time to actually write about […]

Pi Day!!!! (well, to me, everyday should be pie day, but PIE-nally, it’s REAL pie day ūüėČ ). At the end of a long week (or even the start of one. Some weeks, Garfield really knew what he was talking about. Also, possibly your desire for murder may have even increased if any one said […]

Because roses are so clich√© ūüėČ Out of control? What out of control? Having eighty thousand components to a dessert is what you always do too right? Of course you do. I actually felt a little guilty about this one. Kevin was super¬†thankful for it and kept saying how guilty he felt that I’d gone […]

Yes I know, it’s been forever (I’m sure I’m the only one who’s noticed and that you’re now thinking to yourself “Has it? Hmmm…I suppose now that I think about it, there¬†has¬†been a bit less nonsense than usual in my life”). Basically, I’ve just given up on this once a week thing that I did […]

Baklava brownies!!!! For those times when you can’t decide if you want crispy and nutty or rich and fudgy. Now you¬†could just eat both things, or stack them one on top of each other after purchasing from various bakery locations. Or, if you’re some kind of crazy billionaire and also want to be super over-the-top, […]

It’s been a little while, but here I am, comin’ at you with another THEMED MONTH!!! In case it’s not blatantly obvious, this one is cookies inspired by beloved cocktails. I figured I would start with the “craziest” sounding idea, and make some Caesar (aka Bloody Mary since I’m obviously not using Clamato juice here) […]

Let’s start our day with a jolt of adrenaline shall we? If these are filled with sugar, straight up (homemade) chocolate covered coffee beans and protein-packed hazelnuts and pistachios, I think it’s¬†totally fair to call these energy bars. Right? RIGHT???!!! (Is it just me, or does it seem like there’s an earthquake happening right now? […]

Chocolate chip cookies. They’re a classic. A tried and true crowd pleaser that seemingly everyone can agree on. Delicious, chocolaty, chewy and….boring. I mean don’t get me wrong, I’m as big a fan of this staple as the next guy or gal, but that’s the problem with them isn’t it? Do you really want to […]

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 […]

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.
