Sugar Skulls

One last hoorah for Sugar Skulls this year. I had all the colorful icing left over from my last set of skulls I just did. I figured I would make good use of it and make some more. As most of us cookiers know mixing all the different colors is tedious and time consuming but oh so pretty when you have all the colors lined up in their perfect little piping bags ;) So it is good timing when you can use all the colors on a different set of cookies if possible.

Usually when I bake cookies I will make a batch of dough then just cut out various shapes with plans to decorate in the next few days...weeks or months. The nice thing about decorating cookies for my own creative sanity is doing them when I want and how I want. I usually have undecorated cookies in the fridge just waiting for me to get inspired and get all colorful on them lol.

So I made these super colorful Sugar Skulls with cut out flowers for the eyes. I used a Plunge Flower Cutter (usually used for fondant) to cut out by the eye area. Baked the cut out pieces and used the extra little flower cookies for eyes. Flooded the skulls and the flowers white then colored with airbrush. After they were all dried then I added all the colorful piping designs.
Here are some close ups of the eyes as cookies and cut outs..

Thanks for stopping by ♥ 
Happy weekend to you ALL!!!!



  2. You are a spectacular with your art work on food. I always look forward to seeing your new creations. I am wondering, Do you sell these cookies? I have a friend who could use a pick me up and these, or any of your cookies, would definitely lift her spirits.
    Do you have a group class or lessons or simply others who can sit in with you to decorate?

    1. Thank you so much. No I do not sell. I make cookies for an artistic outlet. I also do not hold any cookie classes. Just like to make cookies when I have the time and for my own creative sanity lol.

  3. I guess the white skulls are probably more traditional, but, heck, who needs tradition?? These are amazing!! LOVE how colorful!!!! Please continue to satisfy your "creative sanity". I enjoy seeing the results!!

    1. Oh thank you so much Karen. Yea going of the grid from tradition can be fun lol. Especially when it is cookies!!
