Sugar skulls are a traditional food served at Day of the Dead parties, so when I joined forces with some of my favorite bloggers for a Day of the Dead party I knew I had to make some.
We had so much fun planning and preparing for our party. In addition to the sugar skulls, I made some fun cupcakes.
The Lolly Jane gals made these fun cookies and a banner!
Kate from Songs Kate Sang made these adorable printable masks that the kids colored.
Kimberly from A Night Owl made the most amazing piñata, banner, and silverware holders.
Lastly, Vanessa from See Vanessa Craft made the skull centerpieces and paper flowers.
Everything came together beautifully. Now, let’s talk about these beautiful sugar skulls. I promise they are super duper easy. To make the pressed sugar skulls, all you need is sugar, water, and a mold. And to decorate you sugar skulls you only need a batch of royal icing. Use a good quality gel coloring to color the royal icing.
Get the details for the rest of the party from these talented gals:
