I was honoured to be invited to design a piece for this very special collaboration. Please have a look at the links below see all the pieces from “The Sugar Skull Bakers”
Dia de los Muertos tradition honored by Cake Decorators
The Sugar Skull Bakers – a group collaboration of cookie, sugar, cake decorators, and artists from around the world. For its third year the group brings its tradition to life with a beautifully curated collection of sweets honoring the 3500 year old Mexican holiday – Dia de los Muertos, The Day of the Dead.
Our group, founded in 2013, by cake artist Berenice “Berry” Rabago, of Berry’s Sweet Studio and graphic artist Yuk…i Navarro, in Mexico City, MX. Each member was invited to join based on their admiration for calacas and calaveras (skeletons and skulls).
“This is my idea just to have a lot of bakers make a Dia de los muertos cake to share on 1st of November, DAY OF THE DEAD!” It’s just a fun page … no hurry, no worries just SKULLS. No blood, no gore. It’s to remember and to celebrate our beloved.” Berry Rabago

Title ” Flores para los muertos”
“Prior to undertaking this design, I only had a vague understanding of the ‘Day of the Dead’. I found the captivating colours, intricate designs and symbolism to be enthralling. A poster for the festival depicting a lady sparked my inspiration. Using the community and family aspects of the festival, I decided to incorporate a little girl to represent my love for my four year old girl. There is a clear unity and independence evident in both characters, and this is what I desire for our future together: two strong and loving ladies.”
