Groundhog Day Cupcakes  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

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.

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!
