Homemade Cupcakes with Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Today is a very special day. On top of giving you the recipe for these very delicious Cinnamon Toast Crunch cupcakes, I am also going to share with you a few secrets on how to be successful in online dating. I have been online dating on and off for about 5 years. I have used almost every app possible, and some are better than others. But at the core, they are all pretty much the same. I guess you could say I am somewhat of an online dating expert.

Homemade Cupcakes with Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Unfortunately, today’s guide is only for men, because let’s be real, if I knew how to be successful as a woman I would already have a boyfriend and not be complaining about my terrible dates. So if you know a guy looking to get into the online dating world, or one that is already in it – pass along this guide. It will help a lot of women out there.

Make Cupcakes From Scratch

So here we go. How to Kill It in the Online Dating World. (I realize that most of these may seem like common sense….but in my experience, boys are sometimes lacking in that department).

THE PROFILE

  1. The Photos: Please make it clear who you are – I am not trying to play detective while swiping. Have multiple photos but also limit the group photos and the far away shots. It’s really great that you like your blurry windsurfing photo taken from 2 miles away…but I need to be able to see your face – at least once.
  2. Shirtless Mirror Selfies: Just no. SO MUCH NO.
  3. Children: If you have children, that is fine. But make that clear. And if there are children in your photos, make sure it is clear they are not yours. I’m not trying to guess whether or not I’m going to be a step-mom.
  4. Info: Just tell us how tall you are. I know it sounds shallow…but my roommate is 6 feet tall and this kind of information is important.
  5. Animals: This is the most important one. If you really want to maximize your profile potential, make sure you have some kind of animal in your pictures. I strongly suggest a dog (even if it’s not yours), but baby goats, and teacup pigs are also fan favorites.

THE MESSAGES

  1. Sexual References: C’mon. Your mom taught you better than that. For more information, please refer to Number 2 above.
  2. Bodily Functions: I am not sure why boys do this…but they do. And often. While it may be fine to talk about those kind of things with your bros, girls are NOT INTO IT. So stop doing it.
  3. Emojis: Be cautious with these. I’m not saying you can’t use them, but over using them is not a good look. You don’t want to miss out on finding your soulmate over a crying cat emoji.
  4. Keep your matches straight: If you are talking to multiple girls on an app at once, that is fine. Girls are doing the same thing. But know who you are talking to before you message them. For example, after two weeks of talking, don’t message me “Hey You! How’s Chicago going?” when I haven’t been to Chicago or spoken of Chicago in 5 years.
  5. The Copy and Paste Message: A lot of people have different opinions on this, but I think it’s fine. Just make sure it works for everyone. One time a boy messaged me “Hello gorgeous. Those are some beautiful green eyes you have there”. Spoiler alert…I don’t have green eyes.

Like I said, most of these are common sense. But you can make your profile a SUPER PROFILE if you make sure you follow them all.

Ok that is all for now. Hopefully one day I can write a guide for girls on here. Stay tuned. Also, these cupcakes are to die for. Make them. Eat them. Enjoy them.

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.

It makes pricing quick and easy.

You never have to stress about undercharging again.

Basically, it’s the best thing EVER.

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.
