~Skull Sugar Cubes~

sugar1.jpg

My Owner hates coffee, but he would really use these Sugar Cubes in his hot chocolate or some soft tea~ Just like me, he loves the skull form so much, since it’s a dark element~ But I have to admit that they look so lovely and creepy in the darkness of coffee. Though my Owner is agree with me, he says that it’s a waste of sugar to use it for coffee. Though of course, use it as you wish~! ^w^

Sugar skulls are closely associated with the Dia de los Muertos, or the day of the dead. The traditional folk art have been made for centuries in Mexico. The skulls represent the souls of loved ones who have died.

All you need is Zulka Sugar, water and if you wish, just a dab of ready made cookie icing to accent their teeth and nose.

The Zulka Sugar is good because the sugar is non GMO and better tasting in my coffee.

Sugar skulls tend to be time consuming and messy, if they are the bigger ones to use in the Traditional Day in Mexico. But these ones are easy and small~

Nuevo LienYield: Makes 18

  • small skull mold

Nuevo Lien

Preparation:

  1. In a medium bowl combine sugar and water. Mix with spoon until a wet sand consistency forms.
  2. scoop sugar mixture onto small molds and pack the sugar tightly. Turn the mold over onto a cookie sheet or cardboard, remove the mold and let the sugar skulls dry for approximately 4 hours.
  3. If you wish to accent their nose and teeth, use white ready made cookie icing to dot the teeth and outline the nose. Allow to dry for 2 more hours.

If you get a sugar skull mold, it can be easier for you.
