It might sound strange, but my girlfriend's favorite holiday is Groundhog Day.Every year she decorates the apartment, buys gifts, and tunes in live to see what Phil is gonna do. The highlight of the day though is always the Groundhog Cupcakes.
She makes lots and lots of these little groundhog cupcakes to bring in to work. This time of year is the busy season in her profession, so she ends up baking and decorating these little guys through all hours of the night.Decorating the cupcakes are not as hard as you might think. All you need is some candy and frosting and you are on your way.
First step is to make the cupcakes.
Then gather all your ingredients for the groundhogs. Marshmallows for eyes and teeth, nonpareil sprinkles for eyeballs, Reese’s Puffs for ears, Fruit Roll-Up for a nose and M+M’s for cheeks.
Adding the ears.
Groundhog army attack!
I love winter, but by the time February comes around every year, I am hoping for an early spring. So here's to Phil not seeing his shadow! Dan Whalen is usually sleeping while his girlfriend makes these. He has been blogging for over 4 years at The Food in my Beard
