Moist, top-of-the-line muffins can save the harried hostess a trip to the bakery and a wrangle with the stove. We love these goodies from Los Angeles company Cake Monkey. Fluffy and delicately sweet, this collection features the unusual and savory (blackberry-thyme), a twist on a classic (sour cream coffee cake muffin with streusel), and the autumnal (spiced carrot topped with crumbled pistachio). All Cake Monkey products are baked to order.
