Sugar skulls are almost synonymous with Day of the Dead, and with colors this cheerful, it's easy to see why!


Here's a little sweetie with sugar skull face paint:

(By Mary Way)

The little skulls around her feet are just the cutest things ever.


Here's an incredible sculpt of Frida Kahlo celebrating:

And a bold minimalistic style with PERFECT piping:

Here's something different: a hand painted, Day of the Dead mermaid:

(By KO's Cakes)



Another incredible - albeit kinda creepy - sculpt:

(By Imaginarium Cakes)

Look at all the detail on the skull and the face mask - and the individual curls of her hair!


A classic red-and-black beauty:

(By The CakeLdy)


And a not-so-classic but oh-so-fun Rockabilly style:

(By Man Bakes Cake)

That hair swoop! Hee!


Marigolds are popular during Dia celebrations, and these sugar versions have the most amazing texture:

And while we're talking texture, check out the incredible 3D "embroidery" on this bottom tier:

(By Dolca Llepolia)

It really looks hand stitched, and those colors practically glow. LOVE.


And one last dark beauty:

(By Little Cherry Cake Company)

So many great details! I spy a guitar, candles, marigolds, some tamales - and I *think* the fruit on top is a dragon fruit. Also, today I learned what a dragon fruit looks like. :D


Happy Day of the Dead, everyone! Here's to loved ones gone-but-never-forgotten.
