We're gearing up for a little getaway weekend - a surprise for Jerry so I won't tell you where we're going yet - and so we're doing some fun Valentine crafting at home. Today I made the multicolored crayons from Martha Stewart in a fun Valentine's Day palette: red, pink, orange, and purple. I used a silicone heart-shaped muffin pan and they worked great. The only thing that wasn't quite perfect is that I noticed when I pulled them out of the oven that all or some of the wax had separated to the top. I haven't noticed that this has affected how well they work, but I may need to scrape the wax layer off so that Brynne doesn't get too frustrated trying to draw with plain wax! I used washable crayons (of course!), and I don't know if this makes a difference in the baking, but maybe I'll see if standard crayons do the same thing. Anyone else have this happen?
