Celebrate Day of The Dead with some decorated sugar skulls.

I got my skull moulds from Mexican Sugar Skulls but you could simply mould the skulls by hand.

No, they're super easy to decorate if you've got writing icing (hehe that rhymed). They measure about 2" by 2". I'm going to make some with clay so I can decorate my flat for Halloween.
