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!
