We decorated sugar skulls, yay!

Check it out!  Last Tuesday, I went over to Sew Loka Handmade Collective to partake on the SD Craft Monsters' Craft Hour on a sugar skull decorating.  Oh, I had so much fun!  The icing, the glitter, the company... all was fantastic!

Maribel from Back From Tomboctou taught the class. She gave us some history of how sugar skulls came about and told us the differences between the Mexican sugar skulls  (which are boiled) and the American Sugar skulls which made with the mold. She also gave us instruction on how to make our own sugar skulls and said to get the mold (the instructions are there too).
