Decorated Sugar Skulls

Authentic Sugar Skulls from Mexico

Sugar skull making is a tradition passed on from generation to generation. These boiled sugar confections are the "real deal", true folk art, made by artisans in fewer and fewer places each year. If kept dry, they look beautiful for years!

Sugar skulls date back to the Colonial period in Mexico where they represented a departed soul. Skulls were personalized with names written in icing by the market salesperson. Skulls adorn home altars and cemetery tombs and are a festive icon of the holiday! Boiled sugar that is molded in clay skull molds are the norm but the few that decorate in fine detail take center stage. Sugar skulls are to be kept as folk art - not to be eaten.
