Bright colors and intricate designs combine to make beautiful calaveras cakes! People make sugar skulls, or calaveras, to present as offerings to ancestors for Dia de los Muertos. These cakes are a fun twist on the more traditional sugar skulls. If you can't get your hands on a skull cake pan, simply make some cute cupcakes for Halloween or Dia de los Muertos. Kids can use their leftover Halloween candy to decorate the cakes—now that's a tasty way to recycle!
