In the Mexican tradition of El Día de los Muertos, calaveras de azucar (sugar skulls) represent a departed soul. When decorating sugar skulls, it is custom to write the name of the dead on the forehead and then place the sugar skull on the home ofrenda, or on the gravestone, to honor the return of the named spirit. Sugar skull art reflects folk art qualities of whimsy, bright colors, sparkly tin, and glittery adornments. Originally, sugar skulls were made out of clay molded sugar and then decorated with feathers, colored beads, foils and icing. Decorating sugar skulls is a fun and joyful way to honor a deceased love one.
