Sugar Skulls

The Mexican festival of Day of the Dead is celebrated this weekend. The children made these traditional sugar skulls. They are easy to make. Just mix about 3 cups of sugar with an egg white. Then pack the sugar mixture into skull moulds. You can scrape off excess sugar with a credit card! Turn them out and bake in a cool oven (about 90C) to dry them out. Use icing pens to decorate them.
