How to Make Birthday Cake Truffles

I recently found a list of possible book titles for a book I wanted to write in college. My favorites included…

– How to Guarantee Yourself a Spot in the Friend Zone

– How Not to Flirt with Boys

– How to be Single…Forever.

– How to Avoid Relationships…Even if You Want One

I thought dating in college was terrible – or that I was just terrible at it. But now that I am out of college, I realize it’s not me that’s the problem, it’s dating. Dating is the problem.

Best Quick and Easy Truffle Recipe

Let me tell you why…

When I moved to NYC after college, I thought things would be different. People would be more mature now. For example, no one would be using their keg stand record as a pickup line – and on top of that, there was this whole new online dating world I had yet to tap into. I thought – this is great. A whole new way for me to meet people. And you always hear all these success stories about people finding love on these sites. “He was the first person I matched with” or “I talked to a few guys, but once I saw him, I knew.” And yes, this does happen. I have seen it happen. It just hasn’t happened to me. Not even close. I have been in the online dating game for two years now, and here I am…single as ever.

Truffle Recipe With Oreos

I have tried a lot of different things. And I have been on a lot of dates. I even took notes on this Ted Talk on how to hack online dating in order to increase my chances of finding love. It didn’t work. I have been ditched, belittled, and lied to. And even when I think I found a nice one…something happens. It just doesn’t work out. Dating is the absolute worst.

Do It Yourself Homemade Truffles

I have so many stories I could share, and probably will share down the line, but I am going to wrap it up since this is already a pretty long rant. Just know, that if you are out there feeling terrible about yourself, or that there is no hope in sight – you are not alone AND you are not the problem. Dating is. Dating is the problem. And probably one day, when I do find someone, I will look back and laugh at this post and say something super cheesy like “All those bad dates were worth it because it led me to the person I was supposed to be with.” And that’s fine. But right now, it sucks.

DIY Cake Truffles

Now go make yourself some birthday cake truffles because they are delicious and way more reliable than any boy will ever be.

Oh, and if you really want to know how to guarantee yourself a spot in the friend zone – give me a call. I am basically a trained professional at this point.

  • 1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons sprinkles + extra for decorating
  • 1 lb. white melting chocolate

Instructions

  • Once it is fully melted, use a fork to roll each ball in the chocolate. Make sure the ball is completely coated before returning it to the sheet pan.
  • Let truffles sit until chocolate is dry.
  • Using a fork, drizzle melted chocolate on top of the truffles and add sprinkles.
  • Allow them to dry before eating.

It doesn’t matter if you are a baker, chef, content creator, or any other kind of artist.

If you are undercharging for your work, you are only hurting yourself.

Your time & money = wasted. And that sucks.

Becuase you are TALENTED. You should not just be....

-Bringing in a few bucks here and there.
-Breaking even.
-Or worse, losing money.

You deserve to be paid good $$ for your work!

But in order to actually grow your business, you have to have accurate prices.

And that’s exactly what The Ultimate Pricing Calculator helps you do. It is 100% customizable and tells you exactly what you should be charging for all your goods and services.

Time is one of our most valuable resources - especially if you run a business. Yet, so many people don’t charge for it when it comes to setting their prices.

I get it. Trying to figure out how much your time is worth is complicated.

There are a variety of factors that go into it - location, skill, demand, and more.

But we need to learn how to charge for it.

That’s why I dedicated an entire section to labor in The Ultimate Pricing Calculator. I make sure you add in your time so it is factored into the final price.

Then the calculator does all the magic math for you!

And becuase I know setting your hourly rate can be a little intimidating, I made a bonus video that helps you figure out exactly what it should be.

So tell me...how are you charging for your time right now? Do you think you should be charging more?

Requiring a deposit is a simple way to protect yourself from all the 👻 out there.

They have already agreed to pay you. So in order to start the work, you should ask for some of the money up front.

How much?

It depends on if your prices are set up correctly.

When you have accurate prices, anything from 25-50% should work just fine.

But if your prices are too low (which is the case for MOST new bakers and content creators I work with), you are still not getting enough to make this worth your time (in case they still do 👻).

If you want to see if you are undercharging, my Pricing Calculator can help you check. It’s 100% customizable and will tell you exactly what you need to be charging for each item you sell.

If you think you are undercharging - you probably are. 😬 The best thing you can do for your business right now (especially with all this inflation going on) is to make SURE your prices are helping you, not hurting you.

And if you are not sure how to do that, I highly recommend using The Pricing Calculator. It makes pricing easy.

It tells you exactly what you need to charge for all your goods and services.

No more uncertainty.
No more complicated math.
Just the right prices every single time.

And the best part is, you never have to worry about undercharging again.

Things change. So should your prices! You should be reevaluating your prices 1-2 times a year just to make sure you are still on the right track. And if you have not raised your prices in a while...it’s time.

🤷‍♀️ But how much should you raise them?

Here are some options:
1. Pick a random number and just got with it.
2. Do a tiny bump up and hope that inflation is not killing your business.
3. Use my Pricing Calculator - it will tell you exactly how much you should be charing for all your goods and services (while making sure you are still making money).

If the Pricing Calculator sounds like something that would be helpful for you and your business, join the waitlist in my bio.

That way I can notify you as soon as it is released next week (and you can get access to a sweet discount)!

I can’t wait for you guys to use this magic calculator!

Pie Season is here! If you are looking to upgrade your pie game, the crust is a great way to start! You can find the recipe in my blog here: sprinklesforbreakfast.com/decorative-pie-crust-tutorial

Also, these photos are from one of my earliest blog posts (before my mom lost her battle to cancer). The photos definitely could use an upgrade, as I was just learning how to take food photos. But my mom is the hand model - and I just can’t bring myself to redo them.

It’s so crazy how a photo of some fingers pinching a pie crust can make me so happy and ugly cry at the same time.

Grief is such a strange thing. It comes in so many different shapes and sizes and colors. It shows up for big life events, and it shows up on a random Tuesday when you are diving home from the market and you go to call them and realize they are not there.

Or when you are sitting on your couch posting about pie on Instagram...although that one feels pretty specific.

I know there is no right or wrong way to deal with grief. And everyone has to find their own way to heal.

But I just wanted to say this:

To anyone who has ever experienced loss in any way - I am so so sorry. And while I know words can’t fix it, I just wanted you to know you are not alone❤️
