Happy Groundhog Day!
Posted on February 2nd, 2012

It’s Groundhog Day! Be sure to watch and see if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow this year! You can watch at www.groundhog.org live at 7:20am today, Febraury 2, 2012. Already missed it? Check out the site to see the footage not-so-live!

I’ll be honest, I’ve never made any Groundhog Day desserts before, but I found these cute cupcake decorations at a different site online. Here’s the recipe to make them yourself!
.What You Need:

■Baked cupcakes
■Almond Joy candy
■White frosting
■White jelly beans
■Black decorators’ gel
■Watermelon slice candy
■Brown M&M’s Minis
■Chocolate cookie
What’s Next:

Step 1:
Remove a piece of cake the width of an Almond Joy candy from the center of a baked cupcake. Set the candy upright in the hole, then spread a layer of white frosting on the cupcake.

Step 2:
For the groundhog’s eyes, trim the ends from a white jelly bean, stick them in place with frosting, then dot them with black decorators’ gel. Add a tiny triangle cut from a watermelon slice candy for a nose, brown M&M’s Minis for ears and cheeks, and a tiny rectangular piece of white jelly bean for teeth. Sprinkle chocolate cookie crumbs around the partially emerged groundhog, and he’s ready to greet his fans.

Happy Groundhog Day!
