I have been so excited for Peyton’s 4th birthday from the moment she announced she wanted an art party. I immediately knew I wanted to melt crayons for a background, and stumbled upon a melted-crayon-inspired cake. Challenge accepted. I think I nailed it!! Peyton had the most fun, and had a permanent ear-to-ear smile all day. After the party, she sleepily looked at me, and said, “I liked my party and I really like you!” Melt my heart moments like that make months of planning and hours of cleaning paint off tables and chairs and tiny hands completely worth it!
Here are a few shots from the birthday, with sources listed at the end!
Peyton’s actual birthday is Wednesday, and we plan on keeping it low-key with a fun family dinner, and lots of left-over cake!

The cake was a store-bought vanilla cake, I made a drizzle (1 table spoon of milk, a splash vanilla, and powdered sugar until it was thick enough for my liking), separated it into zip lock bags, added food coloring, mixed it, then cut a hole in the corner of the zip locks, and went to town!
