Sugar Skull Cubes

Skull Sugar Cubes


Sugar skull cubes for the win! These are little sugar cubes in the shape of skulls that will make your drinks extra sweet- even before you dip in your pan de muerto. Yup, when it comes to Dia de los Muertos – I embrace every moment I can. Even down to the sugar I put in my cafe con leche.

They are super easy to make too! One year I made heart-shapes, I thought, why not skulls?

I filmed this tutorial while at YouTubeSpaceLA and my special guest was one of my BFFs, Mark Montano!

NOTE: THis project is also featured in the new e-book: Ofrendas, get your free copy here!



Here are my tips – only add a few drops of water at a time to your sugar, just enough to create a mixture that resembles wet sand. Press firmly into the mold, let set and then flip onto a flat surface and let harden.
