What is a poke cake you ask? No, what you are thinking is 100% untrue, it is not in fact a cake created by children who simply stick their fingers into it. What kind of backroom chop shop do you think I’m running over here? Not that that would stop me from eating it of […]

..anyone else a lover of Judy Bloom? I’m sure she’d punch me square in the face for sacrilegiously using her book title in this clearly not-intended-for-childhood-audiences way, but…what are you gonna do about it Judy? Huh???!!! Yeah, that’s what I thought (ummm…please don’t sue me, I’ll provide you with free Margarita cookie samples! That should […]

…is surprisingly the Sangria infused madeleine cookie. Shocking I know. But you combine a little Spanish flair with a little French sophistication and you are now fully within your rights to call yourself classy and worldly. Am I right? (Don’t answer that, I’m right πŸ˜‰ ). It’s funny because, although whenever I’ve had Sangria I’ve […]

…is actually in my thumbprint. Thumbprint cookies that is πŸ˜‰ . But not just any boring ol’ thumbprint cookies of course. These little diamonds in the rough are virtual poster children for summer beach relaxing time (which I could really go for right now. I miss you summer. RIP πŸ™ ). One bite of these […]

Or alternatively, “See My Zest? See My Zest? See My Zest?” Because who doesn’t love this Simpsons song? (I just couldn’t let that slide…although now that song is totally stuck in my head so possibly not worth it? No, that’s a lie, I always find that song awesome πŸ˜‰ ). Technically though, I think this […]

This would actually be a useful skill if by “Pepper” we were referencing Iron Man’s Pepper Potts. Having a bit of pull over a super hero seems like a useful tool to have in your back pocket πŸ˜‰ . With these treats, I opted to go even more “super” crazy and make them gluten free […]

I think I have Ghostbusters on the brain because Kevin and I recently went to the Rec Room in downtown Toronto and did their fully immersive VR Ghostbuster experience thing (It’s a little pricey, but super cool and totally worth doing at least once. You get to shoot at the Marshmallow Man – at which […]

C’mon, don’t roll your eyes at me – you know you loved that one πŸ˜‰ . Just because you’re jealous that you didn’t think of that pun first is no reason to go all hater-y on me and pretend you’re too good to laugh at my nonsense. Anywho, not sure if you’re sensing a theme […]

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 πŸ˜‰ ). I still had some white chocolate chips kicking around, and those definitely go with cranberries as […]

About Amber

Amber Profile

Hi, I'm Amber Trudeau. Β 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. Β 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. Β To recreate some kind of traditional dessert that tastes amazing without using animal products.
