|In the spirit of Los Dias de Muertos (Days of the Dead), I had a small sugar skull decorating party with a few friends. I made a LOT of sugar skull 'blanks' and 9 colors of royal frosting. We had chicken en mole and margaritas. It was a good time. We all decorated a BUNCH of skulls, which we distributed to friends around town. During the preparations, I used 1 pound of meringue powder, 12 pounds of powdered sugar, and about 35 pounds of granulated sugar. Our house smells SWEET!|
|Benjamin decorated his very own sugar skull. He actually decorated it 10 times, because he would keep licking the frosting off and then putting it back on. It's a germy little keepsake, let me tell ya.|
|Here are some of the skulls I decorated. The large one took 6 pounds of sugar by itself. I decorated it for Dylan, in his likeness.|
|Here is a photo for comparison! Dylan is doing his best Salvador Dali impression.|
Trick or Treat!
