  1. Cover the pointed end with white frosting. Tint 1 cup of frosting yellow, then spread it over the middle of the cake.
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
