Longmont Museum 2012 Day of the Dead Mercado, an exhibit in the form of a village outdoor market. They made 2500 sugar skull blanks. Very clever!

Kim Keech - Night Ofrenda, 2012

We made about 20 or so this year, some to give away and some to keep. I made six special ones honoring friends' loved ones and the ones we kept were for our home ofrendas that honor all of our family members and pets. The Empress wasn't for a specific person, but she is kind of the ringleader. Here's a night picture of our big home ofrenda with some of the skulls. It's in front of a painting by Latino artist Carlos Fresquez called "Talking to the Spirits".

decorated Frida Kahlo sugar skull

Hello! This year, my daughter is having her Quinceñiera and since she decided on November 2nd as her day of event, she went along with "Dia de los Muertos / Day of the Dead" theme. I have bought quite a bit of things from your site and I wanted to share with you - Kiara Mia's Day of the Dead Cotillion/Quinceñiera. Thanks for being great with your service!

decorated catrina sugar skull

One of my dearest friends ever was the one who introduced me to the celebration of The Day of the Dead. She dressed up every year as Catrina when we would attend the Oakland Museum celebration. Miss Linda passed away almost six years ago but she is loved greatly and her presence is felt strongly during this time of year. So after seeing your Catrina skulls my friend Bea and I decided to make our own Catrinas. I bought the medium sized mold from you, but the hats we created were so big that I had to order the biggest mold.

Thank you again for your amazing and inspirational website. I tell everyone about it.

one of our happy custom happy customer's dia de los muertos wedding cake
We ordered the pre-made sugar skulls, the hand-painted calavera bride and groom glasses, and a Dia de Los Muertos cake topper from you guys a couple of years ago for our wedding, and I wanted to give you the pictures. My husband and I had small Alturas as centerpieces, for those of our family that could not be there, and decorated the sugar skulls for them. In the other picture, you can see our cake topper and the glasses we ordered. Everything we got from you was beautiful, and everyone who was at our wedding asked where we had gotten everything. Thank you so much. - Jeff and Angela Broaddus

The last row of banners are ones congregants made with names of their loved ones; the church is an 1843 building; I love the juxtaposition!

These are a few sugar skulls from the last batch I made last year. They're all made of real sugar and bonded with royal icing, but I take the non-traditional road and paint them with real paint and not icing. I'm not sure this is exactly the kind of art you would display on your website but I'm a big fan of the site, the products, the projects and tips etc., and my skulls have been quite a hit with every single person I've shown them to. It has become one of my signature art mediums.
