NEW Big Eyes Sugar Skull Mold™ -» New for 2017

Decorated Big Eyes skull photos coming soon! Big Eyes Sugar Skull Mold from for Day of the Dead
more details
Eyes can be accentuated with colored tin foils, colorful Royal Icing, rhinestones and even round cut outs from soup labels. Anything that looks striking. In Mexico, the sugar skull makers use whatever they find to make a sugar skull special.

This 2-piece mold makes 1 extra large sugar skull. This is the largest, most realistic Mexican sugar skull mold we have. It's whimsical with the big eye recesses to decorate and it's a big skull with lots of room to decorate. Carolyn Potter and I had lots of fun making this mold!

The reason this mold is so special and has been long requested is because the back of the head is exactly the same size as the front. This means the skull sits up straight and does not recline, which is preferable to some people. For chocolate makers who wanted a big skull to make hollow chocolate sugar skulls, this is perfect. They would still need to clamp the 2 plastic molds together, but it doesn't have a smaller back of the head as the Original Large has. This skull is fun to make and in size, falls between the Original Large & Oaxacan XL mold. It's very important to use our strong CK Products meringue powder and scoop to 1/4" - 1/3" walls before assembly. Please send us photos of your Big Eyes skull decoration and we'll try to post them.

Medium Altar Sugar Skull Mold™

(face & back)
Kathi says the size of this skull is between a loquat & a guyabano! This makes a skull a bit smaller than a tennis ball. Back and front are exactly the same size so once it's decorated, it looks very similar to a true Mexican sugar skull. Petite! Nice size to mound up on top of a cake, or give as a gift.
2-sided sugar skull. 2 skull faces + backs per mold. 2 1/2" high.

Small Altar Sugar Skull Mold™

(face & back)
This precious little skull is the size of a large walnut or Barbie doll head. Too difficult for a student to decorate. Cake decorators with small tips will enjoy making these sugar skulls to top cupcakes, use as party favors or 2-bite chocolates. This adorable size is great to decorate or personalize for "angelito" baby ofrendas. Ribbon can be sandwiched between the two skull pieces during assembly to make Christmas tree ornaments!

Mini Altar Sugar Skull Mold™

(face & back)
Only if you really, really love someone would you choose this mini sugar skull mold! It's a bitch to make as it's the size of an acorn or marble. If you are enticed to make these, you will treasure them! They are precious, especially if you put gold tin foil eyes and a strip across the head. You'll have to use tiny holes in your icing bags. They remind me of the exquisite miniature Oaxacan folk art sugar skull makers who sell in the outdoor markets before Day of the Dead. This tiny size would be used on baby altars or gifted between friends at the bistro table while sharing shots in the zócolo.

2016 Small Oaxaca Sugar Skull Mold™

These small Oaxaca sugar skulls recline perfectly to look good on an ofrenda. They have the same look as all the Oaxaca line - about the size of the Altar 2 1/2 " skull, but instead of looking straight forward, this one reclines.

The front is slightly longer than the back of the head. Probably not a good choice for students (Original Medium is BEST) but great for sugar skull makers who want to make lots of little skulls as give-aways, decorate tops of cakes or place setting gifts. Very happy friendly looking skull design.
