We're back! The 2nd annual "Sugar Skull Bakers" are here!
Dia de Muertos or the “Day of the Dead” is a Mexican religious holiday to celebrate the memory of our dearly departed, it has grown in popularity over the years. One of it's icons is the sugar skull, the "claverita", made with sugar and decorated with flowers... it's where we get our name! This is how we became sugar skull bakers, a combination of the passion of 120+ bakers and cake designers from around the world.
The love of skulls and our tradition has grown so much since last year's SSB2013, that we decided to celebrate again this year, a lot of our SSB2013 came back to play with us, and we have new sugar skulls hope you all enjoy Death has never looked this SWEET!!
Check out all of the glorious skull cake art at SUGAR SKULL Bakers!
My cake was inspired by the artwork of the talented Ali Gulec www.facebook.com/ali.gulec.art or www.iiiki.com. The cake sits on a 14”x19” cake board. The cake itself was carved from a 12” round Red Velvet cake. It is coated in dark chocolate ganache and then covered in black fondant. The white shapes were hand cut and molded from fondant. Everything is 100% edible and it served approximately 18 people.
