Mexican Sugar Skulls

All finished, as you can see, we went the lazy route and used glitter glue instead of making royal icing for the decorating. It doesn't look quite right because the moisture from the glue seeps down into the sugar (kind of like pee in the snow). I do like the way the sequins and sticker gems look though. The sequin pack had all sorts of other shapes included- like the baby bottle someone put in the skulls mouth in the lower right hand corner...

The good part about using glitter glue was that I was fine leaving the project out on the table all day, the kids would stop to decorate a few, then move along- it was less messy, less supervision necessary, easier perhaps than royal icing.
Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead!
