Ingredients 8-inch square pan of brownies, uncut
1 3/4 cups white frosting
Yellow and pink food coloring
1/4 cup chocolate frosting
- Turn the cooled pan of brownies upside down and tap on the bottom to remove the brownie square. Cut it as shown (A) and arrange the two largest pieces into a pencil shape (B).
- Cover the pointed end with white frosting. Tint 1 cup of frosting yellow, then spread it over the middle of the cake.
- Tint 1/2 cup pink for the eraser. Pipe on a chocolate frosting zigzag and pencil point using a sandwich bag with the corner snipped off.
- For an added effect, set the pencil on a piece of foam core decorated to look like lined paper and pipe on a chocolate frosting message. (Courtesy: Family Fun magazine)
