You are probably thinking what I thought when I saw this idea, “I am so not a cake decorator.” The good news is that if I can make this cake, anyone can.
Simply bake a box cake in a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Cut the cake in half lengthwise and cut the 2 top corners off to create the pencil tip. Decorate as seen in picture. I used white icing and colored it myself. You will need at least 2 containers of store bought icing.
For added fun. I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drew lines to look like paper with Sharpies. The math problems were my daughters idea.
Again, if I can do it – you can too.
