Sugar Skull, Sugar Cube Tutorial
By Leandra Witchwood
These are great for Halloween and Samhain! I am so excited to share this with you!
Sugar Skulls for many years now, have been one of my most favorite elements of Halloween and Dia de los Muertos. So naturally I turned into a giddy little girl when a few years ago a friend showed me how to make “sugar cubes” out of candy molds.
The sugar takes on the shape of any solid object in your mold. Of course as we made dozens of fall leaves, I was thinking of making SKULLS!!!
This is an easy project. The hardest part is waiting for them to dry & harden.
We have made it a tradition to host a Samhain Tea every year and these Sugar Skull “Sugar Cubes” are a huge hit!
So here is how I make it happen!
Store your skulls in an air tight container.
The mold I use holds about 1 Tablespoon of sugar per skull. Your mold may hold less. Make a bunch for your next gathering. Or make them for everyday use. You know that’s what I do!

Through persistence, I found the honest answer… I can have both! I realize that I could forge my own path using the skills and knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques.
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute. Okay… well, enjoying almost every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where I combine food and spirituality. To my delight they play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach a variety of cooking classes for adults and covens on subjects ranging from making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable, to cooking together as a group, and recipe-spell creation.
It only made sense that I would begin writing and sharing my experience. From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most mundane task and make it Magickal!
The Magick Kitchen is about connecting to Divinity through food and the ritual of preparing and sharing food. It is about developing a sacred balance between nourishment, ritual, and spirit. Food has the power to heal, sooth, and bring us together as friends, families, and community.
I am so glad you joined me! Sharing knowledge, experience, and personal perspective with you is an honor. Thank you!
