My mom’s birthday is February 2, Groundhog’s Day. While we have teased her every year about seeing her shadow, we have never gone so far as to incorporate a groundhog into her cake. This year, I went there (and then I promised her to never do it again). 🙂
I found this cute little cupcake tutorial on Pinterest for groundhog cupcakes. They were pretty simple. I just had to buy a few kinds of candy and cookies. (And, I used cookies rather than peanut butter cups for the head because we have a nut allergy in our family.)
To build these cute little heads, you use melted chocolate chips for glue. Boy did it hold well!
Sorry mom, but it was just too much fun! (She loved them!)
My designer takeaway: Go ahead and make the obvious every once in awhile.
