This is a borrowed recipe I just found. will be making these this year for Imbolgc (Groundhog day)

On February 2, a certain groundhog in Pennsylvania will emerge from his winter burrow. Legend says an early spring is on its way if he doesn't see his shadow, but it's six more weeks of winter if he does. Whatever Punxsutawney Phil predicts, you will surely dig this adorable Groundhog Cupcake.

almond joy candy bar
white frosting
white jelly beans
black decorater frosting
watermellon slice (candy)
chocolate cookie
brown m&m mini's
baked cupcakes your choice of flavor. (i like chocolate)

Directions Step-By-Step

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.
