Hello, My name is Kasia and I’m from Poland, curently live in UK.
Day of the Dead is celebrated throughout Mexico and the Catholic world.
All Saints’ Day is an annual national holiday in Poland to celebrate the saints on November 1. It is also known as the Day of the Dead, as many people remember dead family and friends on this day. Special church services are held to commemorate the saints in various towns and cities in Poland. Many people in Poland lay flowers and candles on the graves of deceased family members and friends in cemeteries. This tradition continues through to All Souls’ Day , which is on November 2.
I love idea from Mexico where the colorful parties take place in the cemeteries to honor specific family members who have passed on.

My piece :To create my cake I used one of my favourite medium recently – cocoa butter. Mermaid’s face are hand painted with cocoa butter and edible dusts with a little touch of gold.
Hair and ship are made of Saracino model paste.

Celtic & European believed Mermaids had a deep psychic connection because the water element symbolizes: Dreaming, Intuition, Emotion, Deeper Knowing.
Mermaids know the deep and darker parts of the soul. The same way the sea holds unknown mysteries, so do our own psyche’s – legend points to mermaids being able to see clear to the core of a human.
Another version of the legend presents Mermaids as daughters of Zeus, whose task was to accompany the dead on their way to Hades. They cared for escorted souls, mourning them with sincere and wistful tears. Just in reference to their function, the images of sirens often appeared on tombstones.
