Kevin,
How about coming to Atlanta for awhile and teach me how to cook like this? You make it look so easy, yet when I try it

These sound great! I'm not a big fan of mint, though, so I'll probably try to sub peanut butter flavoring. Yum!

You know Tyler that reminds me of a story about when I was young.(OMG look what you have went and done now!! ) Anyway I promise I will try and make this short. A couple of friends of mine had mothers that were great bakers. Everyone who tasted their wares told them they needed to go into business to open a bakery and they would make a million dollars from all the people who would comes from miles around. After hearing this same advise many many times they decided that it might be a good idea and went out and bought some equipment, leased some space and away they went.
(This is where the story gets short....I promise, )
Anyway for months everything went great. Many repeat customers made it look like their bussiness was a great success......Until, one day a government rep. came in their store and put a book full of regulations down on their counter and told them that if they did not include the approved list of preservatives in their products that they would shut them down. They did,(because they had to), and they lost all their customers because the taste and flavor of their baked goods was lost forever. That experience has always kept me from attempting what you just suggested..... Sorry , we old guys get set off telling old stories every once in awhile.
