Made this cake in July 2010 for a bachelorette party. The bride loves mojitos and our spa trip had a Cuban theme. The cake was amazing and the fresh mint made a big difference. I'm definitely going to make this again this summer.

Orange-Frosted Cranberry Cookies
I made these for a cookie exchange at work and they were a big hit! Like a previous reviewer mine weren't flat and looked like small biscuits, plus they were more cakey, but still delicious. I decreased the white sugar by 1/4 cup and they weren't over- or under-sweetened. Two tips that may help future users:
--don't try to chop your cranberries by hand, you'll go nuts; use your food processor!
--line your cookies up on a foil-covered baking sheet and use a silicone pastry brush to frost them, then stick them in the fridge for 10 or 15 minutes so the icing can set (I then left mine out overnight for good measure). The silicone brush is fast and very easy to clean.

Lemon Cheesecake Bars
I had this recipe on my "to-bake" list and am just disappointed I didn't try it before now! It was so easy and was a perfect dessert for our Memorial Day BBQ. Everyone ate it with strawberries and blueberries on top and it was a perfect combo. I loved how light it was, yet still tasted creamy. And again, it was SO easy! You have to try this. I followed the recipe as posted, using lemon cake mix, and made them the night before. I refrigerated overnight and didn't have any issues with a soggy crust. It was a big hit!

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake
This came out great! I added a little extra milk when I was mixing to make sure that the dry ingredients would be covered. It took some elbow grease to spread it into the pan. I checked on it at 30 minutes and the top was still too watery, so I cooked an additional 8 and then another 5, for a total of 43. At about 40 minutes I could see the cake baking up more from underneath. I left it out for about 10 minutes and the liquid layer thickened up nicely. It was delish, so easy, and we'll definitely make it again.
