Sugar skulls? What the heck are those? Maybe it’s because I’m Canadian. Maybe it’s because I’ve never been to Mexico. Whatever the reason, I had never seen or heard of Mexican sugar skulls. That is, until a couple of weeks ago when I was surfing for kid’s halloween costumes and then came across this site for Mexican sugar skulls. How enchanting! These would make fabulous favors for a Halloween wedding!

Mexican sugar skulls or calaveras de azúcar are used to adorn altars on The Day of the Dead.

Then I found this tutorial on how to make sugar skulls. And this one too. And this one.

I will definitely be making these for halloween next  year!
