Decorated Guadalupe Sugar Art

Last year, when Angela was in Michoacan for Day of the Dead, she ran across a sugar skull vendor selling from a rickety wooden table under the arches of the town square. He had just brought in a new batch of his famous sugar Guadalupes, and women were clamoring to buy them for their ofrendas! It would make a very special offering for their departed loved ones. They were iced with green frosting for the Virgin's cape, golden yellow flames of the resplandor, and little gold "teacher stars" stuck into the icing of the cape. They were true works of folk art! We have tried to make a similar Guadalupe mold this year for your enjoyment... for those of you who can't go to Patzcuaro to get the real thing. It is made with the same sugar skull, meringue mixture as the sugar skulls. Dry the back and front and put together with Royal Icing before decorating. The Virgin stands 8" high.

About the Virgin of Guadalupe

On December 12, 1531, only 10 years after the Spanish invasion of the Aztec nation, Our Lady of Guadalupe first appeared to a humble peasant named Juan Diego. She asked that a shrine be built in her honor on the Hill of Tepeyac in Mexico City, the site of her "birth".

The Spanish bishop wanted a miraculous sign to verify this request. When Juan Diego opened his tilma, (a coarse-woven mantle made from maguey fiber), a cascade of rare and beautiful Castilian roses fell to the ground and the Virgin's image was imprinted upon the cloth. After nearly 500 years, her image remains mysteriously unaltered!

Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe (Our Lady of Guadalupe) is considered the symbol of the spiritual heart of the Mexican people. She can be found dangling from rear view mirrors to elegant home alters... even tattoos! She's as much a cultural & spiritual icon as a Catholic symbol. Her image is found everywhere in Mexico and is made from a myriad of materials including wood, clay, stone, paper, concrete, metal, cloth and sugar!
