Event_lg_SugarSkullsTucson traditionally has one of the largest Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations in the United States, celebrated on November 1 and 2. Colorful sugar skulls are part of the traditional altar, or ofrenda, that is put up to honor the recently departed. Sugar skulls are very easy to make, and in this class you’ll learn how to make the skulls using simple ingredients and special molds. Pre-made skulls will be available to decorate with brightly colored icings while those formed during the class harden.
