Happy Dia De Los Muertos I was delighted to be asked to take part in SUGAR SKULL Bakers this year to celebrate this Mexican Celebration of the Day of the Dead. I would like to dedicate my contribution here to “LIFE”… to grab each moment and embrace it. In the words of Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor) states in his Meditations: “Death smiles at us all, all a man can do is smile back.”…/SUGAR-SKULL-Bake…/555676987836198

HAPPY DIA DE LOS MUERTOS! (@ SUGARSKULLBAKERS) This piece is a tribute to the memory of my mom. This is all cocoa-butter-painted fondant-over-RKT, with traditional sugar skull details, though I did add the words "LIVE LAUGH LOVE" as an inscription on the top of the skull. These words are engraved on my mom's tombstone and always remind me of her. You may also notice the rosaries, crucifixes, and prayer beads included as part of my photos. My mom had a lot of faith, and I also wanted to depict this in my creation as Dia De Los Meurtos or Day of the Dead is seeped in faith and tradition, and is a beautiful celebration of the lives of our loved ones who have passed away. I also wanted to share these touching words, which were read as my mom was laid to rest: "Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die."
