Day of the Dead Celebration

 A  national holiday in Mexico, this celebration is also celebrated in many
parts of the world. It is a time to remember those who have passed.
Day of the Dead cookies decorated with sugar skulls and flowers.

This skull mold has stone eyes which can be filled in with a contrasting color, add slightly less paste than needed to allow for spreading when the top color is added. Place the mold in the freezer for five minutes to get the details to show clearly and for ease in releasing the mold.

Be sure to clean up the edges of the eye area with your finger to get a nice sharp line.

 Piping gel or buttercream icing can be used to adhere the fondant to the cookie.

The backdrop is decorated with a simple garland.

Chocolate cupcakes were flavored with cinnamon and cayenne pepper.

The rose mold and simple flowers decorate the mini cupcakes.

Chocolate Skull Pops

A wood grain mat was used on the fondant before attaching to the cookie.
