Just crummy old broken crayon melted into crayon blobs.  But they look so pretty, I had to share.

Beautiful! I think I'll make some for gifts!

Do you think it matters whether the tray is non-stick or not?  I have a great old muffin tray that has a design on the bottom, but it's not non-stick.

Suuuuper cute!!  I love them.

They will LOVE them!  I made them for our wedding reception and coupled them with wedding coloring books.  I made them in little disposable foil pans that were hearts, but I know they sell star-shaped ones, too http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190245.0

Recycling crayons is so much fun! It can become addictive trying to find new shapes to make lol.

Non stick is fine.  Once the crayon is melted and cooled, put the whole tray in the freezer for 30 minutes or so, bring the tray out and give it a wiggle upside down and the crayons should pop out, a la ice cube style.

Lowest temp on the oven.  People have also melted on the stove and poured into molds.

I've got more pics on my blog too: http://indietutes.blogspot.com/2009/10/crayon-cakes.html

thanks all!

I always wondered if non-stick trays would work, too!  Thanks!!
