I have made up my mind!

Now you all know I have been after the infamous Wii Fit for MONTHS! Well I have to say that after the past two days I have decided that my obsession with the Wii Fit is done! Why? Well for the past two days I have been working out with .. Yup you heard me right! I have been working out for 2 days, I have enjoyed it very much. And besides the fact the I am not super soar and dying over here I can continue working out without a laps! So the reason I wanted Wii Fit was to have an instructional how to of what to do kind of workout. (if that just made any sense?) So now that I have FREE workout videos that are easy to pick and choose different types of workouts, I am happy to say that I am saving my 100bucks and spending it on baking goods!

what irony! So I have discussed and debated over taking baking classes at Micheal's. Well This weekend I found out that classes are 27bucks plus supplies... uhh can we say 50+ a pop! No thank you, so I am going to get some supplies with my 45% off coupon and just go online and use some tutorial videos! Ah the great vastness of the internet! I love it! First off I am trying not to bake till Halloween is over, but I fear that this is inevitable! I am itching to do something! So since I am not making dinner tonight (hubby coming home late) I will be baking AFTER I work out. Now originally I had planned since I am going to be out all day I will not work out, BUT I will get a half hour or more workout in! I have from 230-730 to go out and do everything I got to do! The only responsibility I have today is to call in dinner from the Chinese food place.... EASY!

So I plan on making Chocolate cake from scratch and butter cream frosting from scratch. Now I think I will make the frosting today and make the cake tomorrow. This way I can get a grip on what I'm venturing into and not go over board. Also the two recipes that I have are super easy.

Chocolate cake:


  • 2 cups (12 oz.) semi-sweet chocolate chips divided
  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
Now seeing how I have everything except chocolate chips and eggs, it seems easy enough right?

as for the butter cream frosting goes:

which means all I need is powdered sugar. I can't wait to get started! Home made cake from scratch not a box!
