Happy Day of the Dead!
Today was the release date of Amy Sedaris' new book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People.
It is laugh out loud funny and actually has some worth while craft ideas. Staying with the Day of the Dead theme, Amy has a simple recipe for Mexican Sugar Skulls.
You will need:
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon meringue powder
1 teaspoon water
plastic skull molds (each one takes 1/2 cup sugar)
sequins, colored frosting
Mix together sugar, meringue powder, and water with your hands until it feels like damp sand. Pack into molds, carefully turn out onto a flat surface and let harden 24 hours before decorating. Enjoy!
