Groundhog Cookie & Cupcake
Updated: Aug 29, 2020
This is a dessert I came up with after looking around at different YouTube videos, but it's different than what I have seen. The groundhog cookie is standing up and peeking out of it's cupcake burrow.
You can use this technique w/ standing up a cookie in a cupcake for other designs. For example, a bunny in a garden.
I made a sugar cookie and decorated it with Non-Royal Icing Icing as I wrote about it in the previous post. It's not chocolate frosting, just white icing colored brown.
Before decorating, I cut a hole in the top of the cupcake to fit the cookie and stood it up.
I also made some of the icing black and painted on some of the details in icing as well.
The teeth are white marshmallow fondant. The chocolate cupcake without frosting looked like dirt to me, but you could also add chocolate frosting or chocolate frosting with Oreo crumbles on top.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
