The Sultan's Pomegranate Cupcake

The Sultan has a vicious case of the Mondays.
What this actually means is that I had a very long day and instead of having the time to bake all my arsenal for the next week, I have to resort to looking for a picture of cupcakes I made a while ago. These are dark chocolate and pomegranate cupcakes that I made as a more "sophisticated" holiday treat last year. These very rich and grown up tasting--dense chocolate cake, then a layer of pomegranate jelly, covered by a layer of chocolate ganache, and topped of with a sprinkle of jewel-like pom seeds.
