Groundhog’s Day Cookies!

I have to admit, as a little girl I was always confused on Groundhog’s Day. I thought if there were clouds in the sky, we would have a longer winter so I always wished for a cloudy gloomy day. I didn’t want the sun because it meant the snow would leave and no more snow days!

Don’t laugh! I was little! LOL I have finally got it right! A cloudy day means no shadow and spring is coming soon.

Groundhog-Day-CookiesOutline a fuzzy shape for your groundhog by following the outline of the cutter and making a mouth and leg like I did here. Let it dry for about 10 minutes.

Then, with the brown outline icing, fill the groundhog and be messy! If you look closely at mine, you will see small holes.

Next, add a little black icing to the mouth. You may want to use a toothpick or a  BooBoo Stick to  get the icing to the corner of his

So the big question of the day is, “Do you want an early Spring or 6 more weeks of Winter this Groundhog’s Day?”

Happy Creating,



  1. Lisa, this is such a cute idea! The shadow is genius! :) I’d love more winter, but I just heard that Punxsutawney Phil says spring is on the way!

  2. I’m wishing for sunny skies – and it’s a sunny day to start by seeing this little creature!

  3. The shadow…..are you kidding me? What an awesome idea and the texture on the groundhog…totally amazing…totally Lisa! Love it!

  4. Adorable designs. Unlike you I am not a fan of winter and I just came in from shoveling snow so I’m glad to hear that Phil did not see his shadow this morning.

  5. These groundhogs looks like they’d be goofballs :) In my book, that’s a great thing! Also, the shadows and clouds are such a cute addition! Alas, I’m ready for winter, so hopefully no shadows over here!

    • I am a big goofball Michelle! No shadows so it looks like Early Spring wins this year. But, it is snowing like crazy here so I might get one more good snow 😉

  6. I love his shadow! SO cute!
