Halloween is almost here and I have spent the entire week frantically working on my costumes. Yes…there are multiple. So, in the spirit of the best holiday ever, I decided to dress my cake up as well. This year, my Rice Krispy Treat Cake is going as a Flamingo!

If you follow any sort of food account on Instagram, I am sure you have seen this chocolate brush stroke technique making the rounds. It’s SO hot right now. And for good reason. Adding a little brush stroke chocolate makes anything look super fancy! But I am here to tell you, it is actually quite easy to do.

All you have to do is drop a dollop of melted chocolate on some parchment and use a brush (an offset spatula will work as well) to make the dollop into a line. Let it harden and then attach it to whatever baked item you made. That’s it! I even made my roommate do it for some videos. So if she can do it, anyone can do it.

But the real star of this cake is the Rice Krispy Treat base. Not only is it pretty and pink, but it also makes this cake an entirely NO BAKE CAKE. That’s right, no oven required to make this beauty! And with the temperatures we have been experiencing the last week (it has been over 100 degrees in LATE OCTOBER) a no bake cake is the perfect solution. And it also makes all your gluten free friends happy!

  • Divide the mix evenly between the three cake pans. Spray your hands with non-stick cooking spray and press down until the layers are tightly packed and have an even top.

  • Repeat with other two chocolates and then place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Carefully remove the chocolate brush strokes from parchment. Place onto iced cake starting from the back and moving forward.
  • Find a side profile picture of a flamingo on the internet. (I used photoshop to mirror the image as well) Print it on card stock cardstock.
  • Cut out the flamingo head and attach a toothpick at the base. (Use tape or glue to attach the two sides if you are using mirrored images). Stick the toothpick into the middle of the cake.

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❤️
