Happy Dia De Los Muertos ~ Day of the Dead!

Today is Dia de Los Muertos - Day of the Dead. I celebrate this holiday as well as Halloween. The Day of the Dead is about celebrating the dead. We honor their life and what they meant to us.

To celebrate Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) I made a Sugar Skull Pull Apart Cake.

All I did was make cupcakes. I then frosted them in white and put them all together to make the skull shape. I added a little more frosting to fill in the gaps. Then I decorated the "cake". I used Oreo cookies as the eyes and nose. I used the little tubes of frosting gel for color.

I am certainly no expert in sugar skulls but this one came out quite nice. I looked up some images on yahoo, then tried to create my own masterpiece. I also added one of my Dia de los Muertos Grim Reaper ornament to the top of the cake. It's not half bad!

I hope your day is wonderful. And honor the loved ones who passed in your life. I usually light a candle for my loved ones.
