Piggy Nose Pomegranate Cupcakes

This is a guest post written by Sara from

When I was in high school I raised a pig. His name was Gus-Gus (like the mouse from Cinderella).

Raising a pig was quite the experience! Pigs are stinky and dirty but loving and obedient. Their noses are firm but squishy and oh, so cute! And there lies my inspiration for these fun creations – Piggy Nose Cupcakes!

Grocery List:

  • pink sprinkles
  • chocolate chips
  • marshmallow fluff
  • butter
  • vanilla
  • powdered sugar
  • white cake mix
  • milk
  • eggs
  • pomegranate (optional)

To start – make cupcakes.

Pomegranate Cupcakes

1 box white cake mix
2/3 cup melted butter
4 eggs
1 cup milk
1/4 cup pomegranate juice (I blended mine from the fruit)

Mix all ingredients together until well blended.
Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes.

Then make (or buy) white frosting. I used marshmallow frosting.

Shake pink sprinkles onto the frosting and push two chocolate chips (tip side down) into the frosting.
