The Mexican tradition of Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, gives families a chance to honor loved ones that have passed on. Food and skulls are two aspects of the holiday, and these cute cookie cutters and stamps are the perfect way to make some sweet sugar skull cookies.
Decorate them brightly and pass them around or leave as a treat on your Ofrenda.
This kit includes four brightly colored stamps based on traditional sugar skull designs.
The Detroit Institute of Arts, in collaboration with the Mexican Consulate of Detroit will exhibit 20 ofrenda alters, or offerings, created by local artists in the exhibition "Ofrendas: Celebrating el Dia de Muertos," running from Friday, Oct. 13 to Sunday, Nov. 12. Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead) is a tradition in Mexican and Mexican American communities that honors the life and memory of lost loved ones through creating ofrenda altars.
