What it is -- A cupcake and frosting mix based on one of Ina Garten's popular recipes
What we like about it --This offering from the new line of Barefoot Contessa mixes produced delectably moist, pretty cupcakes that gave no hint they'd come from a box. (You will need to add nearly a stick and a half of but ter, plus cream cheese and eggs.) These coconut-topped goodies are fancy enough for a celebration.
What it costs --$10.95-$11.99 for a 24.9-ounce box
Where to buy --Eddie's of Roland Park, 6213 N. Charles St., or bare footcontessa.com
