Grab your knife and fork - these cupcakes are worth doing the dishes!

Allow me to set the stage. It's an office-mate's birthday and you decide to present them with a treat inspired by their favorite doughnut, a Top Pot "Feathered Boa."

The typical reaction? A muffle of sounds (their mouths filled with golden cake) and then "What makes these so good?!"

Simple answer? 6 sticks of butter, 5 eggs, 2 packages of cream cheese, confectioners sugar...and on and on. 

She's no Paula Dean but Ina Garten has mastered the art of taking butter and transforming it into heaven. 

Dense, moist, rich...hefty. These cupcakes are best enjoyed with a fork and knife. 

The Barefoot Contessa's Baking Line carries the mixes but I recommend trying them from scratch. They're fairly simple and are far more flavorful! Try it for yourself!
