My best friend and I made cupcake crayons today! It was so much fun, but does take a little time! They turned out so cute, it makes you want to make all your crayons shaped, or at least it did me!
Crayons – Lots of them, depending on how many you want to make
Empty soda cans, we used 11, only 9 would fit in the pan at a time
Pan – one that you don’t mind getting ruined, we learned this through the process!
Stir sticks- we used wooden kabob sticks
Peel off wrapper from the crayons and place in soda cans where the top has been cut off.
Place the cans in a pan with water in the bottom of the pan. The cans will float so weighing them down with spoons or putting enough in the pan at a time to hold them in works well!
melt the crayons down and stir before pouring
Here is how it looks!
Lay candy molds out on parchment paper, just to be safe. You will need it later anyways!
Squeeze one end of the can to make a spout and pour wax into candy molds. Place molds in freezer to harder. It will make the process go a lot quicker!
Pop the tops and bottoms out of the molds onto the parchment paper. Break off any excess wax that you don't want and place back in the can for melting!
Pour some wax on the top portion of the bottom piece and place top piece on. Squeeze together tightly and turn the cupcake upside down so that the wax hits the top portion of the cupcake.
Tops and bottoms put together! So cute!
