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

3. Next, 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.

4. 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.
