SUGAR SKULL BAKERS 2015 - HUITZILOPOCHTLI
Dia de los Muertos tradition honored by Cake Decorators
The Sugar Skull Bakers – a group collaboration of cookie, sugar, cake decorators, and artists from around the world. For its third year the group brings its tradition to life with a beautifully curated collection of sweets honoring the 3500 year old Mexican holiday – Dia de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead.
I love to study about these amazing cultures and find links between the old civilizations and the modern cultures. This year I did a Day of the Dead celebration with quetzal plumage and rose and dahlia flowers. A nod to the Mexican (Aztec) god, Huitzilopochtli. It was believed that fallen warriors after forming part of the sun’s bright hues, would return as hummingbirds forever. I thought they would add to the composition a beautiful touch and make great observers and guardians for this sugar celebration.
