These authentic Mexican sugar skulls are colorfully decorated and ready to adorn any ofrenda.
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!
Made in Mexico
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!
Note – These are for decorative use ONLY, not to be eaten!!
