Celebrate the new school year with this sharp-looking dessert, great for a classroom potluck or back-to-school social.
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.
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.
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.
