I’m clearly on a bit of a cranberry kick here…because my new challenge is apparently how many berries can you cran into one blog? Wakka-wakka-wakka!! (or sad trombone sound depending on how cheesy you like your puns ūüėČ ). I still had some white chocolate chips kicking around, and those definitely go with cranberries as […]

Aren’t these pretty? What is it about frosting things in sugar that just give them that deliciously ethereal look? As much as I hate winter, visually it can be pretty stunning. If only real snow were like this though. You know, not actually cold and deliciously sweet? The cupcake version of these really only exist […]

These were not in any way what I had originally intended to make. I was weirdly thinking about bananas, so that part still came to fruitition (get it? FRUITition? Waka wakka waka. You know you love it ūüėČ ), but I was actually initially intending some kind of banana bread-esque thing with icing. But then […]

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 […]

THEMED MONTH!!!! I’m super excited about it because there is just so so much potential for disaster here. What can I say? I just love livin’ on the edge like that (which then reminded of that Aerosmith song. I ‚̧¬†the teenage nostalgia of that tune). To get you in the mood for this month, I […]

I know you’re probably tired of seeing peanut butter posts from me, but you’re going to have to learn to live with it, because if you’ve learned anything yet from this blog, it’s that I love that crazy nut (it’s very a-peanut-ling ūüėČ Ugh, that was terrible, even for me), so if you hate it, […]

…or “Short(bread) Circuit” because technically¬†these are supposed to be shortbread. However, I’m incredibly incredibly picky with what I deem shortbread, so, not sure really if it’s an appropriate title in this case, but I don’t care because honestly? In the words of Ned Flanders, they tasted rather scrum-diddly-umptious and I would totally make them again. […]

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 […]

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.
