As the clock strikes 12 on the morning of November 1st, Halloween black and orange is traded in for the bright, energetic colors of Dia de los Muertos. The Mexican holiday honors loved ones who have passed with private altars covered in sugar skulls, marigolds and their favorite foods.
We were inspired by our Dia de los Muertos party invite to create edible sugar cookie skulls, fit for your spooky and sweet celebration. Because we’re all for making things simple yet chic, we used pre-made cookie dough and skull-shaped cookie cutters we found online. Add in pre-made gel frosting in multiple colors and you’ve got Dia de Los Muertos cookies your guests will swear you spent hours making. We won’t tell you didn’t.
