<Halloween Monster Doughnuts | Sprinkles For Breakfast

Last week was the first week in October, which for me usually means everything I do starts to center around Halloween festivities. I am making costumes, planning parties and of course, baking as many Halloween desserts as possible. I REALLY REALLY love Halloween.

But last week was different. I couldn’t bring myself to get excited about any of it.

This blog is supposed to make people happy. It is about sprinkles, cookies and cupcakes and is filled with so many bright colors. But how could I write about anything remotely happy when so many terrible things were happening in the world?

Hurricanes and fires are destroying people’s lives, my best friend’s father passed away unexpectedly, and Vegas.

Last week I spent a lot of time just staring at my computer trying to write this post. I couldn’t come up with anything. And then I spent even more time under the covers trying to process what was happening. Long story short, it wasn’t a great week.

But this week I decided that no matter how much shit was going on in the world, no good can come from staying in bed. So I got up and made some doughnuts – really really cute monster doughnuts. These are super fun to make, and if you are making them with kids, it is the perfect way for them to get creative. My favorite decorating tool for these guys is this Grass Tip. It makes for the perfect “hairy” monster!

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌

She’s not like a regular spreadsheets. She’s a COOL spreadsheet. Also quick shout-out to Olive’s poop bag hanging out of the drawer in the back!

But The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is truly amazing because it includes our advanced pricing calculator that factors in your costs, labor, overhead and profit in order to give you a final price (but you don’t have to do any of the math!!) You never have to stress about pricing your goods and services again.

But that’s not all.

Here are some other things it does:
- makes pricing quick and easy for anyone who works with food
- specific ingredient section to cost out your recipes
- 100% customizable (gives you final prices based off your own costs and materials)
- all the formulas and formating are already done for you - you just have to input your data in a few cells
- includes a cost per unit calculator
- lessons to help you figure out how much you should charge per hour and how much profit you should make!

Right now you can get it for 50% off. Check the details with the link in my bio.

The Ultimate Pricing Calculator is actually designed to be the opposite of a “regular” spreadsheet. It is there to make things LESS stressful - becuase we have done all the hard (and boring) work for you.

It makes pricing quick and easy. All you have to do is input your info in a few cells and it automatically gives you the price you should charge for your goods and services.

It’s the best thing ever.

See how you can use it to price all the goods and services in your business in my bio!

Pricing was one of my biggest struggles in the beginning. I was always overthinking it and trying to analyze what other people were charging.

But with the Pricing Calculator, I no longer had to stress out about it. The calculator simply just told me what I needed to charge. It was AMAZING and a total game-changer.

And now I want to help make pricing easy for you too. Check the link in my bio to see how you can use the calculator in your business!
