Fill foil liners about two-thirds full with unwrapped crayon stubs in assorted colors, place in a muffin tin, and bake at 275° F until melted (about 10 minutes). Then freeze for cool colors with zigzag edges.
To skim excess fat from soup without refrigerating it, fill a metal ladle with ice cubes and glide it along the surface a few times, wiping the ladle as needed. Excess fat will cling to the ladle’s bottom (and not yours).
Place liners in a muffin tin and fill with batter. In each cup, slip a ball of foil between the filled liner and the tin. This will create a notch at the cupcake’s top, shaping it into a “heart.” Bake as usual.
