Did this just happen.

As I was laying in bed after school, like I always do, watching an episode of 'I Used to Be Fat,' Billy said, "I know what we should do tonight......make cupcakes. I just found a picture of a dark chocolate cupcake with a chocolate chantilly filling topped with white chocolate ganache that I want to make."

It was the best thing I have ever heard coming from his mouth.  Not only is he becoming a runner but maybe a foodie too.  Muhahaha, my plan is working!

We used THIS recipe for the cupcakes and white chocolate ganache.

and THIS recipe for the chocolate chantilly filling.

I decided to take you on the journey of our Tuesday Night Cupcake Extravaganza.......remember, I am carb loading for Dogtown that is 4 days away.  Cupcakes are necessary.

Be prepared for a ridiculous amount of pictures.

Step 1: Drive to the grocery store because you don't have any of the ingredients for cupcakes.....I couldn't find any recipes using brocolli, m & m's and tuna so we had to go buy the goods.

Nothing is hotter than a man in the chocolate aisle.

IMG_4318.jpg

I got some sweet bicep curls in while shopping

IMG_4319.jpg

Step 2: We came home and I blasted Sarah McLachlan and Regina Spektor.  Poor Billy had to listen to me singing at the top of my lungs.  I seriously could have died happy listening to my favorite songs while Billy was hard at work and I was testing the batter.

IMG_4321.JPG

IMG_4320.jpg

Step 3: All of this baking and singing required fuel.  I was going to just have a few packs of Black Cherry Shot Blocks to get me through my glycogen depletion until the cupcakes were ready but decided I should probably make us some dinner.  We had grilled chicken with pasta, broccoli and marinera sauce with a huge hunk of garlic bread.  This meal costs a total of $2.50 and it felt kind of fancy:)

IMG_4322.JPG

Step 4: Put the cupcake, filling and frosting together and thank your lucky stars you run because you know you are about to down three of these bad boys.

IMG_4335.JPG

Step 5: Contemplate doing the dishes, washing your face and picking up your purse that dropped and spilled all of its contents but decide that nothing is better than crawling into bed with a belly full of chocolate, your best friend and a smile.

------------------------------------------------------------

What was the last thing that you baked?

-CUPCAKES and on Sunday I made brownies for the fam.

FAVE cupcakes?

-These ones

Does your significant other enjoy baking/cooking? Do you like what they make?

-Everything tastes better when Billy makes it!

What is your workout today?

-I have to be honest....I am calling what I am doing tapering because my knees are not feeling so hot, I wouldn't normally taper before a 1/2.  Probably not my best idea to do a marathon and 20 miler within 3 days of each other.  So, I am going to be super optimistic and tell myself they are just a little bit tired.  I will be teaching spin at night:)  On the bright side I got to sleep in and sleep off my sugar hangover.

Ahhhh I love watching I used to be Fat. It's almost as good as the Biggest Loser. PS. Why do these shows make us want to eat? :( Those cupcakes look DEE-lish!

Hi Janae,

I hope you have a great day! Take care of those knees. Are there any left over cupcakes? Love you! Mom

Hope your knees feel better! I bet a couple days of active rest will be just what they need. You're going to FLY in your race this weekend! I can't wait to read about it!

LOVE baking! Those cupcakes look awesome! I plan on making some filled with nutella and topped with choc buttercream tomorrow. I just made these yesterday: http://dalyauthenticity.blogspot.com/2011/02/culinary-adventure.html

I think my FAVE cupcakes will happen tomorrow when I make above said cupcakes!

Hmm..I gotta get Tom in the kitchen. This is how much he knows about cooking: His text the other day was "Are hot dogs precooked?" I might have my work cut out for me!

Cross-training day for me with weights already done!

LOVE the looks of those cupcakes. Last night I baked Mama Pea's Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Balls. I bake them at least once a week....maybe more. I tell myself I am baking them for someone else-its a lie, they are all for me! Favorite cupcake is prob red velvet. My husband likes to cook not bake and I dont like him to do either because he likes to much red pepper. Workout today: Run and a HIIT circuit....because of the cookie overload last night

What a fun cupcake adventure! Billy loves to cook. I'm getting better at cooking/baking. The last thing I baked was brownies. Can't beat a warm brownie. I had a long run Monday and an impromptu run with friends last night, so I'm taking it easy today. My knees need a break, too. I hope you are having a Happy Wednesday!

I love your zest for life!! :D I wish my man was that passionate about baking especially with chocolate. My bf just likes to cook, mostly grill. He makes all the meat in our household. And sometimes he throws together fancy salads. Oh and he makes a killer guacamole and any Mexican food you can think of. My role is baking. :)

I'll have to try to make these cupcakes soon since they're your new favorite!

 
At February 23, 2011 at 7:55 AM , Blogger Kathie said...

Oh My God! I want that cupcake so bad and RIGHT NOW!!!!! Man, nothing is hotter than a man going food shopping & looking at ingredients..it is also even hotter than he is cooking!!! yaya!! Got yourself a keeper there ;)

 
At February 23, 2011 at 7:57 AM , OpenID catiepat said...

Those cupcakes look amazing!! YUM.
My boyfriend is a better cook than me so when we cook or bake together he takes over and I get to watch and set the table... It's like having your very own live cooking show! The last thing we made were turkey burgers that were to die for! I was actually allowed to help!
My all time favorite cupcakes are probably just a nice basic vanilla with chocolate frosting. The frosting has to be really good though!
Today is suppose to be my rest day, but it's sunny outside so I might just run 3-4 miles for fun :-)

You're hilarious. I'm glad you and your man got to bake together last night. That's like the cutest thing ever. John and I used to bake muffins together all the time when we were dating but I think I get kind of bossy in the kitchen and scared him off...SHOOT! I need to lure him back now.....

Fave CCake: regular vanilla or strawberry.

My workout today will be lifting chest and tricep and then doing some cardio.

Have a fab Wednesdee!

That sounds like a perfect evening! Whenever my bf asks me to bake something special for him I get excited bc I looove to bake and I'll take any excuse to do it! Cupcakes are one of my favorite desserts! Something you should DEF try (as a fellow sugar lover) is crunchy sugar frosting - it actually is just combining store bought vanilla frosting and stirring in a lot of Sugar In The Raw - use that to frost vanilla (or whatever) flavor cupcakes and you end up with a crunchy sugar frosting that is so delicious! My family always requests "crunchy cupcakes" for any family gathering!

 
At February 23, 2011 at 8:06 AM , Blogger Regina said...

Last thing I baked was peanut butter cookies on Saturday. Aron does not bake or cook, I don't think anyone would want him to do that. (When we started dating, I was at his house and he opened up a can of beenie weenies (vomit) and put the can right on the stovetop! Culinarily inclined, he is not.
Still going slow with the STILL swollen knee, but I will be shoveling our too big driveway, and it will probably take me at least an hour- that counts, right?

Forgot to add, I will be making those cupcakes sometime soon!

Seriously, Billy is the BEST! I am going to have to find myself one of those running, cupcake-baking hubbies!! :P

I did a ruuun whilst watching the rest of Toy Story 3. SO darn sad, I may have cried and dropped my fuel on the belt which then shot off onto the floor. Ooops! Oh and I LOVE your top it is SO CUTE!!

Have a great day gorgeous!! I'm spinning either tonight or tomorrow and will be thinking of you!! And your knees will be fine I'm sure (cupcakes have healing powers don'cha know?) so chillax beautiful:)

I start track practice tonight for my half marathon training so that will be my workout today.
The last thing I baked was Valentines Day cupcakes and Nutella banana bread (the best banana bread ever!). My hubby doesn't get anywhere near the kitchen except to eat.

I baked muffins on Monday, my fav. cupcakes I've made are chocolate caked with pb filling, pb cream cheese, frosting, and a 1/4 Resse's cup! My favorite cupcakes I've bought are S'mores and Heath Bar! My boyfriend makes pancakes and that's about it. But I love pancake and for some reason am terrible at making them, so maybe we're made for each other?! I am tapering for a half, my training said to do so, I am doing yoga today=)

I baked bread last night...and rolls.

The cupcakes look good!!

Could you tell me if there is a bike to run exercise equation somewhere??? I know they aren't the same, but just looking for some way to compare. I am a total rookie on the trainer bike- and you seem to know what you are doing!

Sounds like an awesome night! You look a little like you have braces in the car picture...hmm.

The last thing I baked was banana bread this weekend. It was awesome!

My favorite cupcakes are the chocolate raspberry ones I've convinced my sister in law to make for every milestone/important occation in my life.

My husband only makes omelets, but he enjoys all of the things I bake! lol

Today is going to be another round on the killer treadmill from hades as I'm still waiting for our new treadmill to arrive!

My husband is a fabulous cook and baker. He makes this chocolate ganache cake that is to die for! His banana cream pie is also up there on the list of things that make me have to run. check out a picture here: http://jenandjanz.blogspot.com/2008/05/why-i-have-to-run-marathons.html
Sounds like your plan for Billy is working out perfectly!

My favorite cupcakes are these awesome Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting that I make. My husband does not cook but I love it so he gets to enjoy :).
OK I have a question about the dark chocolate cupcakes (I am a baker and will have to add this to my list of ones to make) did you fill the cupcakes before you baked them or after? I have seen recipes go both ways and I want to make sure that I get it right :).
Thanks,
Tiffani

You and Billy are wearing matching shirts! I actually haven't baked anything in a while, so I might have to change that. The cupcakes look delicious and so pretty! I love when my boyfriend suggests we bake something together, it's so cute.
I hope your knee feels better because you have the ability to totally rock that half!

I have never heard of the show I Used to be Fat but I think I should start watching it! Your cupcakes look better than the ones on the recipe I think. I like the idea of white choc chips on top much better than bacon.

The last thing I baked was chocolate marshmallow cookies with my mom last night. My mom is the best cook and baker I know. Everything she makes is amazing...yum!

I haven't been able to bake since winter break =( but I made homemade graham crackers then that were awesome! That is so much fun that Billy wanted to do that... happy adorable day!! I'm not sure about favorite cupcake but my favorite restaurant has banana fosters that is RIDICULOUS

Can I just say how 1) I love how watching "I Used to be Fat" turns into a cupcake war, and 2) I love how you and Billy match when you go grocery shopping.

And 3.) (because it's Wednesday and I do what I want) I wish I was there baking with you. :)

I don't remember the last time I actually baked but I do remember the last time I ate baked goods and that was today.

My fave kind of cupcake is yellow from a box with chocolate ice cream from a can. Super classy I know.

My workout today will be a lunchtime tempo run and hopefully a swim and core after work!

Funny you should ask, my husband and I both love to cook and we "argue" a lot about who "gets to" cook.

I love cake in any form...Even cup. It's been 13 days since I've had cake, but I'm trying to get rid of some of my goo that's hanging around from the winter in order to wear a swimsuit and not be thoroughly disgusted with myself (P90X is helping me lose the jiggle). So, cupcakes are off the list for a bit. Instead, I'll be a good girl and do the healthy thing. :)

 
At February 23, 2011 at 10:07 AM , OpenID drkgood said...

Haha...Billy said "chantilly" and "ganache".

They look yummy. Just the other day I had the best cupcake ever. This new cupcake and creamery opened by our house, and their "wedding cake" cupcake was both beautiful and like heaven in your mouth. I will have to go back and post about the experience. :)

Somehow I need to squeeze in a quick run this afternoon. I was up late and couldn't drag myself out of bed this morning.

It is Thursday morning and I just finished running-I check your blogs while I am sweaty and feeling rejected because my husband won't cuddle me in my post-run glow..

baking: Date scones. This was ages ago because now we are married we live in a midget house with a terrible oven and I can't bake.

P does NOT bake, once he helped me make a lemon yoghurt cake and I quickly found out he can't be left alone.

I agree-nothing hotter than a man in the chocolate section, or your man carrying a cupcake for you. hmmmm.

I love your boots!

I don't think I have one favorite cupcakae. I can not discriminate!

My husband just enjoys the finished products! he never bakes or cooks!

My work out was probabyl something you do in your sleep. lol!! I ran 4 miles w/ 5 x 400's @ 5KRP and did strength trianing for back. I will be lifting more this evening and doing push ups.

You are one lucky girl! These cupcakes look and sound incredible, yum tons of chocolate! I love cupcakes, as long as the frosting is good. There's a specialty cupcake store that just opened near me that I need to check out.
I'm the baker in the relationship, and my boyfriend is awesome at cooking. It works out well - he makes dinner, and I feed him yummy cookies.

FAVE cupcakes?
Triple-Chocolate Cupcakes: Choc cake, filling and frosting (Is it going too far to add a choc candy to the top??)

Does your significant other enjoy baking/cooking? Do you like what they make? Oh-I wish!! I cook everything. If he steps up to help out at dinnertime, it usually means a run for Chinese.

What is your workout today?
Spinning class, weight circuit and the endless rope... ahhh!

What was the last thing that you baked?
Christmas cookies. Isn't that the saddest thing you've ever heard? It's almost MARCH.

FAVE cupcakes?
A friend of mine just made these amazinggg vanilla and coconut cupcakes. SOOO GOOD.

Does your significant other enjoy baking/cooking? Do you like what they make?
My fiance loves to cook/grill, and I love to bake. We are going to have some pretty well-fed children.

What is your workout today?
Cardio-city. Elliptical/stairclimber 60 minutes total.

Yum those look so yummy, actually dinner looked just as good! My workout today was a 4 mile run (I'm pregnant and in my 3rd trimester so I don't usually run more than 5 miles right now so that's a good workout for me) and it rocked, its also my birthday so it was an awesome way to start my day at 4:30am in the dark with no one around but me and my mace!

Favorite cupcake: Red Velvet!

Love you girl you rock! Take it easy on those knees.

I love that you and Billy match, and I'm pretty sure I have the same shirt you're wearing! My husband cooks about 4 days a week at our house, and it's great! I'm a good cook, but I don't love to cook like he dooes, so I let him do it. ;o) And I completely agree that everything tastes better when the husband makes it!

Brian loves to bake but he loves for me to bake for him! WE both love any type of cake/cupcakes that are red velvet! SO yummy!

Today, I ran 3 easy miles. It was nice to catch up on some TV while running although I almost fell off a few times just because I was trying to read the captions on the TV.

If my hubby suggested I make cupcakes, I'd probably die! he discourages me from baking because we eat every bite it whatever I make and he feels guilty!

I actually just made funfetti cookies the other day. YUMMO!

Girl you are so cute!! I love your outfit in the store. I wish my boyfriend would bake with me. The one thing he can make is eggs--and this was only after I taught him. haha
