(with apologies to Alice Cooper)
But, really, school IS out for one teacher who celebrated her retirement today at Winston's Grille in Raleigh.
It was hard to choose which part of this creation was my favorite. I was tickled with how realistic the edible eraser looked. Does anyone else remember how thrilling it was to take the erasers out and clap the dust out of them for the teacher?
And I really liked the way the composition book looked. I chopped up the pink sponge square that I use when I make gum paste flowers and used it to stamp the marbly design on the fondant book cover with food color paint. So now I have to get a new sponge square, but it was totally worth it.
Did you ever get in trouble for chewing on a pencil? Well, these No. 2's are made for chewing!
I delivered this cake just before the party started and got a huge kick out of the reaction it got. Thanks for making me feel like a rock star, everyone. Hope the party was lots of fun!
