Sugar Skull Bakers 2017

This year I have dedicated my creation to Frida Kahlo who has a cult status among those of Mexican heritage.Kahlo’s life story embodies this. She suffered when young, contracting polio. Then years later was left with lifelong physical suffering after a bad accident.
Her embrace of Mexico’s indigenous roots and her dedication to social and political reform in Mexico, combined with her colorful clothing, lifestyle and vibrant paintings, colourful sex life, and bright paintings, have made her an iconic figure. 50 years after her death, Frida’s life has inspired thousands along with her paintings. In her lifetime she was not recognised as an artist, but is now studied and analysed.
In Mexico, sugar skulls is created in honour of Day of The Dead (Día de los Muertos) which is observed 1st and 2nd November (All Saints Day and All Souls Day). This tradition celebrated the family members now deceased.The Aztecs believed one should not grieve loss of a beloved, but instead celebrate their lives. Mourning was not allowed as it was believed it would make the spirit’s path treacherous.
