Happy Groundhog Day!

Yeah, I know it's tomorrow, but I'm just so excited that I can't wait!

Groundhog day is one of my favorite holidays of all time because:

#1 Groundhog Day is probably my favorite movie ever.

#2 I get to make these cupcakes every year with my friends.

Groundhog Day Cupcakes

Baked cupcakes
Almond Joys (Yum! I LOVE these!)
White frosting
White Jelly beans
Black cake decorating gel
Watermelon slice candy
Brown mini M&M's
Chocolate cookie

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.

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.

#3 ... and actually that's about it. Wow. I thought that there were more things. That's okay. I still really like this holiday!
