These are actually more than just pomegranate cupcakes.
They are
Pomegranate White Chocolate Chip Cupcakes with Pomegranate Cream Cheese Frosting.
The Cream Cheese Frosting put these cupcakes over the top. It was rich and creamy and so delicious.

 

It all started with a white cake mix. I replaced the water with Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Juice, added in the oil and the eggs (I added the whole eggs not just the whites) then I added in 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
3/4 cup pomegranate arils
4 drops Lorann Pomegranate Oil
then baked as directed

 

Lorann Oils has a large variety of flavors.I buy them at my local baking store, they are available on Amazon if you are unable to find them near you.Lorann-Pomegranate Flavor

 

All golden brown and nicely baked.

 

The frosting!
Pomegranate Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
3Tablespoons milk
4 drops Pomegranate oil

I frosted them with a 2D tip in a rose pattern. Just like when I made Lemon Buttercream Frosting and Orange Cupcakes the cupcakes I’ll never forget ๐Ÿ™‚

 

then added some Pomegranate Arils on top. They look very festive to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Diana,

    These cupcakes lokk beautiful. How do you get the frosting that white? My frosting is always more yellow than white ๐Ÿ™

    1. This frosting is half butter and half cream cheese, so there is less “yellow” than if it were all butter. Different butter brands have a different amount of yellow in them so it does vary. If you want to be sure the frosting is “white” add some White Food coloring to it, Americolor is a brand I use when needing white frosting or icing. It’s available at baking supply stores and online. But I didn’t have to add any to this recipe or I would have mentioned it. It does depend on the color of the butter typically, but white food coloring is so great for a white-white look.
