Happy Groundhog Day

I played with my food again.  I made Phil and these cakes for the after school kids today.

 I started by making three decadent chocolate bundt cakes.

 Then I made a silky ganache for the icing.

 Chopped up a bunch of chocolate cookies for the dirt.

 Then covered the cakes with the ganache and sprinkled the cookie dirt over them.

 Surrounded the cakes with green tinted coconut.

And made a totally goofy looking Phil to put in the center of one.  BTW...Phil saw his shadow so we should have 6 more weeks of winter. Which means I still have a chance for snow since we have had a horribly mild one so far.  Tomorrow I'll show you what I made them for their meal to go along with these.
