Things have been nuts around here. My little one just started Kindergarten! It has been exciting and stressful all at one go.
To celebrate her first day of school I made her a pencil cake! Now forgive me cause I did not take pics of the whole process (wanted to get it done before the bus brought her home) but I did make a tutorial :)
Mix up your cake mix and bake in 13x9. Let cool
Cut cake to match picture. You can cut it all the way down long ways to make it skinnier (more like a pencil). Or you can just hack off two of the corners. Ice the whole cake and place in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. It does not have to look pretty.
Tint icing pink, yellow, and black. Place it on cake according to pic.
Add black accents to seperate sections
and VIOLA! Back to school cake :)
