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 Mini Traditional Sugar Skulls. The final skulls measure approximately 1-1/2 inch high by 1-1/4 inch wide and about 3/4 inch thick. Finished skulls will be flat-backed.
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.
Our traditional mini mold is great for chocolate or soap as the intricate details are harder to decorate, but the traditional sugar mixture works well in either mold.
If you are going to make plaster or soap skulls, please do not use the same mold for making edible items.
Instructions included. Finished skull not included.
