Sugar Skulls are a traditional folk art from Central and southern Mexico. They are customarily used in Day of the Dead celebrations. Local village open air markets offer mounds of colorful sugar skulls for sale during the week preceding the Day of the Dead.
Now you can make your own Traditional Sugar Skulls. This set actually includes two molds - one for the front of the skull and another from the back. The Your final skull (with front and back together) will measure 4 inches high by 3-1/4 inches wide and 3-3/4 inches from front to back.
Over the last few years, people have been producing non-traditional candies and other items such as soaps and plaster images in the same manner of the sugar skulls.
Our molds can be used to make the traditional sugar skulls, chocolate skull candies and even soaps and plaster items.
If you are going to make plaster or soap skulls, please do not use the same mold for making edible items.
