November 1: Sugar skulls

November 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

You need:

1 cup white sugar

1 t meringue powder (can be found in Mexican stores and online)

1 t water

sugar skull molds (found in the same Mexican stores).

Mix the sugar, powder, and water with your fingers until the mixture resembles beach sand. Put the mixture into a mold and pack it as tight as you can. Put the mold on a postcard and gently push the skull out. Done. Let  the skulls dry for 8 hours, then decorate with glitter, paint, feathers, sequins or whatever else you wish. We haven’t gotten to the decorating part yet, but here are this year’s skulls:

And remember: sugar skulls are not for eating!
