Groundhog day is one of those holidays you get excited about as a kid but as an adult you seem to forget about; at least I know I do. But since tomorrow’s Groundhog Day it’s the perfect excuse to bake cupcakes, more specifically to make these Groundhog Day cupcakes by Lilly Jane. I found this recipe via Hip Hip Hooray and really like how easy they are with the DIY toppers for the groundhog and cocoa powder for the shadow. I would only want to eat one without a shadow which means spring will come quickly! Below are the four simple steps to decorating your cupcakes for Groundhog Day.

1. Bake some delicious cupcakes.
2. Frost cupcakes with a white tones frosting (so it looks like snow)
3. Using tape and a little extra paper create a stencil from your cupcake topper paper trimmings. Dust cocoa powder onto cupcake.
4. Gently push groundhog cupcake topper into cupcake, just behind your new cocoa powder shadow.
