Pomegranate Cupcakes

It's finally starting to warm up around here (although we got a few inches of fresh snow last week) and this cupcake is the perfect one to wrap up the winter season with. My favorite part of winter are the citrus flavors that come in to season- I will never get tired of the light and fresh flavor. Pomegranates are sweet and tangy, and they make for a really uniquely flavored cupcake.

They're topped with fluffy citrus cream cheese frosting, that gives it a little extra tart-ness and balances the dense texture of the cake. To garnish, there are pomegranate seeds and strips of candied ginger. 

No extra coloring was added, the bright pink hue is all from the fresh pomegranate juice! These are the perfect little bites to treat yourself with in this Winter-to-Spring in between time; sweet, tangy and a little spicy from the ginger.
