You baked exactly 9 more days in Januray than I did. Devil's Food Cupcakes sound AWESOME!!!

More--I didn't do the cupcakes but a 9x13 cake from doubling the recipe. Then a smear of peanut-butter truffle mix left from Christmas, then the chocolate ganache frosting. Mostly because there would have been only 24 cupcakes even if I doubled it for the office and that's not enough for 40 people. Doing the 9x13 cake allowed for more pieces. I was going to do those for the library but didn't have the mayonnaise for that recipe so I went with the "infamous" chocolate-chip poundcake of my sister's, with a dark chocolate ganache on top and a sprinkling of Heath bits to lighten things a bit. I still want to make those cupcakes and actually have the ganache in the fridge to do it--just need the mayonnaise (which I forgot at TJs). :)

Those Lime Shortbread bars sound yummy. I bet they ship well too :D Did you use regular lime or key limes?

Carol, I used a combo 2 times. First time it was limes, lemons and Meyer lemons. The second time I got away with only lemons and limes. I doubled the batch and it originally called for 1/2 c. of lime juice. Let me tell you it takes a lot of limes to get that!! Both times I didn't have enough lime juice and had to put in a sub for the rest. But, everyone said they were very tasty. They would probably ship well--not as soft as lemon bars...more jelled on top so pretty sturdy. :)

I do not eat it, Emily. I bake for my coworkers, librarians, cleaning gal, lawn gal, just about any person who works at my house, not to mention a few friends and family...and a few Humzooers as well.

ooh, that makes sense. I bet the people who work at your house look forward to coming! I've got a baby shower at work tomorrow, going to bake chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies...keeping it simple because I've waited until the last minute...will make them after dinner tonight!

If you want to "kick it up a notch", Amber, you might go with these. A little different than a cookie. If not, keep it in mind for the next time.

I'm making these for the weekend--I'll let you know how they turn out. I'd think they would be even easier than cookies.
