Sugar Skull Kits

Because of the wildfires that burnt down our warehouse last week, we can’t send you a kit.

Please consider buying 4-5 of the Original Medium Molds or the Big Eyes Mold as a substitute for the Original Large mold. Please just order from the merchandise we have.

*Please read Home page AND the Sugar Skull Making Instructions page AND Teacher Tips page.

Buy the Decorating Supplies (paste food color, disposable icing bags) from your local cake decorating or hobby shop. You can find CKProducts meringue powder online or use other meringue powder but add a couple extra Tablespoons to OUR recipe to beef up it’s holding power.

Each of these kits comes with a free papel picado banner! Just buy your own granulated & powdered sugar.

Designed for 80 students. A 10-pound bag of granulated sugar will yield 44 tangerine size sugar skulls. These 1-piece, flat backed skulls are the fastest, most economical & easy to make.

This kit makes up to 88 medium skulls and 5 batches of Royal Icing (this is what's needed for 88 skulls).

OR, the kit can make 308 skulls and NO Royal Icing. Make sure you buy extra meringue powder for the Royal Icing if you are planning to make more than 20 pounds of skulls.

Rule of Thumb - each 10 pound batch of granulated sugar OR 2 pound batch of Royal Icing uses 1/2 cup of meringue powder. 1 pound of meringue powder is a little less than 4 cups. Also keep in mind, each batch of Royal Icing should be split into 12 disposable icing bags.

Make your sugar skulls right! Read our step-by-step Sugar Skull Making Instructions

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 is 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. The Virgin stands 8" high. -AV
