I once read somewhere that failure is life’s greatest teacher. And as a self-proclaimed perfectionist, just saying those words out loud make my skin crawl. I mean, aren’t we taught to AVOID failure at all costs?!

But that was before pop queen Ariana Grande put things into perspective for me with her new single “thank u, next”. Instead of taking the usual sad or bitter route when it comes to talking about past relationships, Grande declares that she is actually so f*cking grateful for them. She celebrates her ex’s for what they have taught her and for shaping her into the woman she is today. She is thankful for these “failures” and even shows her fearlessness in welcoming the next one. Pretty profound for a pop princess – huh?

So if you haven’t heard it – do yourself a favor and listen HERE.

And then take a second and think about the failures in your own life. The times you were upset or ashamed or heartbroken – and try to think about what you learned from them. I know in the moment, those experiences probably SUCKED and actually…they might still suck to think about. But when you take a longer look at them, did they teach you something about yourself or the world we live in? Did they actually make you stronger?

If not – you can totally just ignore me and Ariana Grande and just make this cake. Because I guarantee this is something you and anyone else you let taste it will be thankful for. The Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting is INSANE. Like the kind of thing you could just eat off a spoon it’s so good. And when it’s paired with the pumpkin cake it’s pretty much pure fall heaven.

Instructions
 

FOR THE PUMPKIN CAKE

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare three 8" cake pans (or four 6" pans) with parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk oil, pumpkin pureé, eggs, and sugar until combined.

  • Divide the batter evenly between the three pans. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Allow the cakes to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the cakes from the pans and set them on a wire rack to cool.

FOR THE FROSTING

  • Prepare a small tupperware container with parchment.
  • In a medium saucepan, cook butter over medium heat. Allow butt to sit until butter starts to give off a nutty aroma and butter begins to foam.

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.
