Sugar Skull Bakers 2017

My inspiration this year came from papel picado, that is commonly found in altars during Dia de Muertos. There is so much art and creativity in them that I was compelled to recreate them in sugar by carefully cutting out the shape that I want from very thin pieces of fondant.

Standing proud on top of the two tiers of square cakes is a stylised version of La Catrina x Frida Kahlo, as she dances and twirls her dress. I was so happy to create movement with the dress to bring the figurine to life. Her face was painted with Edible Art Paint, including the Sweet Bakes range of Watermelon Pink and Bright Melon Green.

The edges of the square tiers were trimmed with colourful pom pom ruffles to celebrate the colour and pomp that is noticed during the Day of the Dead.
