Sprinkles For Breakfast Ice Cream Recipes Peppermint Oreo Ice Cream

Learn to Make Peppermint Oreo Ice Cream

The holiday’s are coming to an end and that means two things. 1. You have a lot of leftover candy canes, which happen to be perfect for this recipe. 2. You are starting to think about resolutions that will turn you into the new you in 2017. But this year, instead of looking ahead, I decided to reflect back on the last (really awful) year. I apologize in advance for the length of this post…but apparently I had a lot of feelings today.

Best Recipe For Peppermint Oreo Ice Cream

Homemade Cooking Instructions | Peppermint Oreo Ice Cream

Dear Lindsay (one year ago today),

Hi. It’s me…Lindsay. I know you are feeling pretty terrible right now and all you want to do is get this year over with. 2015 has definitely been the worst year of your life and you would like it to end as soon as possible. I wish I was here to tell you that the next year will be all rainbows and butterflies, but unfortunately, 2016 is worse. You will soon learn that as hard as it was to lose your mom, trying to navigate a life without her is much much harder.

In a few days you will spend NYE sobbing in the back room of a party while your brother and Natalia awkwardly try to comfort you. As you can probably guess…Natalia has much more success than Zach. While everyone else is dancing and taking shots to the face, all you can think is that 2016 will be the first year of your life that does not have your mom in it – and that’s pretty terrifying.

It kinda goes down hill from there.

Over the next year you will slip into the worst depression of your life. You will spend an inappropriate amount of time in your bed and will cry more tears than you ever thought possible. You will constantly worry about your dad and brother and feel defeated when you can’t find a way to help them deal with their pain. You will become so numb that you will forget what it’s like to feel any sort of joy or excitement. You will fight with your best friend, you will avoid most social situations, and you will have an absolutely miserable time at a music festival (but that’s probably just because music festivals are the worst. I suggest this being the last one you EVER go to).

In 2016, you will wake up almost every single day feeling frustrated and confused as you try to figure out who you are and how that person fits into this new world without your mom.

But I am here to tell you that despite all of this, you survive. Slowly, you start to live your life again. In the next year, you will make some new friends, you travel to amazing places, and even go on a few terrible dates. Just a heads up…one boy will literally run away from you when you try to hang out with him and it’s super awkward – but, you survive.

The shattered pieces of your life start to piece themselves back together. Not all at once, and not in the same way they were before – but somehow, they manage to find a way to make it work. In one year from today you won’t be 100% happy with where you are in life, but you will finally feel like you are headed in the right direction.

So as the new year approaches, prepare yourself for some really bad days. Stock up on tissues and sweatpants because you will be using both a lot this year. And know, that no matter how hard it gets or how much pain you feel, you make it through.

– Lindsay

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

Rose Gold, Gold and Black available @sweetsindeed.

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 🙌

Those dumb knives!! I was so sick and just trying to find a place to tell you guys about my amazing new Pricing Calculator. It didn’t go well. But if you do want to see how cool the pricing calculator is, the link is in my bio. ...

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!
