Magical Rainbow Bars | Sprinkles For Breakfast

You know those people who buy a one-way ticket to a foreign country without any plan and just figure it out as they go? Yeah, I am not one of those people. I am more the full itinerary with planned tours, restaurant reservations, and a list of suggested places to shop kind of person. Basically, I am a low key control freak.

Okay…maybe not so low key.

Throughout life I have found there are a lot of advantages to having a control freak personality, but I have also found that dealing with change is not one of them. It’s actually kind of my worst nightmare. And as I am about to embark on a whole lot of change in the next few months, I am trying to remind myself that sometimes, change is good.

Without change we walk through this life doing the same things over and over again. We become stunted in our own comfort zone prisons, never giving ourselves any opportunity to grow. Without change, it becomes impossible for us to challenge ourselves or know what we are really capable of. And if you ask me, that’s kind of sad.

So I would argue that even though change can be terrifying, it can also be kind of necessary to living a happy life.

So, to celebrate change, I made these Magical Lucky Charm Bars. This year Lucky Charms introduced the Unicorn Marshmallow – the first new marshmallow in 10 years! And because we all know the marshmallows are the best part of the cereal, I think this is an amazing upgrade.

They are kind of like Rice Krispy Treats, except better because of the previously mentioned marshmallows. They are an easy to make, no bake treat, and they have a pretty epic rainbow topping. So if you are a Rice Krispy Treat purist, I urge you to switch it up and try something new!

We all need a little change in our lives – so why not start here?

- 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!
