About this mold

Last year, when I was in Michoacan for Day of the Dead, I ran across a sugar skull vendor selling from a rickety wooden table under the arches of the town square. He had just brought in a new batch of his famous sugar Guadalupes, and women were clamoring to buy them for their ofrendas! It would make a very special offering for their departed loved ones. They were iced with green frosting for the Virgin's cape, golden yellow flames of the resplandor, and little gold "teacher stars" stuck into the icing of the cape. They were true works of folk art!

We have tried to make a similar Guadalupe mold for your enjoyment... for those of you who can't go to Patzcuaro to get the real thing. It's made with the same sugar skull, meringue mixture as the sugar skulls. Dry the back and front and put together with Royal Icing before decorating.

Large Plaster Skulls

Large plaster skulls are attractive when you don't want to make traditional sugar skulls. Good for young children who don't have the dexterity to operate an icing bag. Also good for ofrenda builders who must leave their altars outside in variable weather where sugar skulls would be getting moist. Artists enjoy a plaster skull when making finer artwork.

Large plaster skulls are usually made with just the face side of a two piece mold; however, advanced crafters can bond both back and fronts together using fast drying epoxy (make sure to "rough up" the mating sides with coarse sand paper to get a good bond). We recommend the Original Large (W3500), Original Medium (W3501) or Oaxacan Medium (W3492). The Oaxacan X-Large (W3480) and Guadalupe (W3485) molds are just pretty big and take a long time to dry, but they can be used.
