Sugar Skull Molds Supplies created the original Sugar Skull Molds as seen in Sunset and Domino magazines. We've offered our molds online since 1999. Our sugar skull molds have been used by Martha Stewart and "Modern Marvels - Halloween Tech" on the History Channel and featured on The Food Network.

Sugar Skull KITS for classrooms & parties

If this is your first time making sugar skulls, it can be a bit confusing to decide what supplies are needed. We offer 3 kits to make it easier - a Family starter kit, a Classroom kit for young kids and a classroom kit for 3rd grade to adult. That one is great for large adult parties too. Check it out here! We have instructions and Yield charge to help you calculate quantities. If you have further questions, call me!

Set of 6 electric paste colors - Electric Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Blue & Pink. I decided to buy these just because of the hot pink, yellow and orange!

Frankly, our paste purple W3515 is a deeper color in my opinion. These are more "liquidy" squeeze bottles than the concentrated pastes colors below so they are a bit easier to use; but if you're making big batches of Royal Icing, they won't color as much icing as the jars of paste color below. Both types have their advantages. Electric color bottles are 0.75 fluid oz.

No time to make sugar skulls?

These ready-made sugar skulls blanks are perfect for class or parties! Already made for your convenience!
Made from our ORIGINAL sugar skull molds™

UPDATE > We hope to find a group, school, museum, party, restaurant or organization tht might be interested in buying a large quantity of Original medium sugar skull blanks. $42 per dozen ~ 2 dozen minimum please ~ and full boxes of 82 skull blanks for a discounted price of $3 each! We're happy to split up the boxes if necessary. These are a perfect centerpiece to a Day of the Dead party.

To decorate for a group using 12 large sugar blanks, you'll need: 8 oz meringue powder (to make two batches of royal icing - each batch needs a 2-pound plastic bag of powdered sugar), 1 pack assorted colored tin foil, 6 paste colors, and 2 dozen icing bags (all available below!) Quantities slightly less for making Medium sugar skull blanks.

Unless you want naked white skulls, you'll need supplies to decorate your sugar skull blanks!

  • Meringue powder for Royal Icing
  • Paste food colors
  • Disposable icing bags
  • Colored tin foil
  • Sugar skull boats
  • Powdered sugar - from grocery store

Rule of thumb: 1 batch Royal Icing is needed per dozen skulls. (This will require a 2 pound bag of powdered sugar from the grocery and 1/2 cup meringue powder from us.

Once white icing is mixed with food coloring, a batch should be split into 12 disposable icing bags with a small amount of icing in each. Usually, 6 paste food colors is enough for any project - and white! An 8 oz meringue powder is enough to make 4 batches icing.

We cannot accept an order for less than 24 Medium Sugar Skull Blanks at this time.

Colored foil

4" x 4", 125 sheets

Colored foil makes the sugar skulls look traditionally Mexican! It's pasted down with the icing. Use the foil to make the rectangle on the forehead - when you buy sugar skulls in Mexico, the seller will write the name of the person you are honoring with icing there. You can use the colored tin foils sculpturally, making earrings, cigars, flowered hats, eyeglasses and such to personalize your sugar skulls. The shimmery colored foils make great eyes! If you are making chocolates, the pieces can be covered in a foil square, like a cherry cordial, to make it festive.

Paste colors

1 oz bottle - Add to your icing. These intensely saturated paste food colors are what make the icing on the sugar skulls look truly Mexican! The paste colors are edible and can be added to any food, cupcakes or icing year 'round. Long shelf life. Grocery store food colors cannot be used to tint Royal Icing. Our paste colors will not fade and will give you the deep, saturated colors for dramatic sugar skull projects. ( * = Most popular colors)

Day of the Dead Cello Treat Bags

Eureka! I finally found them. I've hunted for Day of the Dead images for years in party shops, dollar stores, big box seasonal aisles, cake decorating shops... We Día de los Muertos folks need these to package up our decorated sugar skulls and chocolates made from our molds. We need them to hold our hand made gifts. These bags aren't cheap, but they are truly Day of the Dead images - sugar skulls, Catrina and a crazy skeleton dancing in the cemetery. The good thing is that the bags are big - 6" x 11", no gusset. An order comes with all four images, printed in purple, orange and white. Made in Mexico. 25-bag packs
