Dia De Los Muertos Fondant Toppers2_TheMarshmallowStudio

My boys are obsessed with Halloween. Whether it’s because of the thought of being allowed to get a major sugar rush all in one day or all the fun and spooky decorations in every store we walk in to, they love it! I think Halloween is cool but I’m more of a Dia De Los Muertos person. I remember growing up in Mexico celebrating this beautiful holiday with delicious bread, traditional clay dishes, flowers and artisan crafts.

Dia De Los Muertos (or Day Of The Dead as it’s known in the United States) is a Mexican holiday in which friends and family gather together to pray for and remember their deceased loved ones. Traditionally the celebration takes place October 31st- November 2nd. People build private altars called ofrendas, honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and favorite foods and beverages of the departed. They also visit their graves and leave some of these as gifts along with a few possessions of the deceased.

{RECIPE} BAKE, FROST & TOP – THANKSGIVING CUPCAKES

Bake, Frost and Top - Thanksgiving must cupcakes

There is a huge number of sweets and dessert recipes to make for Thanksgiving but I like to stick to a classic that is sure to be a hit with little ones and big ones alike. They’re easy to make, easy to serve and they taste delicious. Pre-made individual servings for your guests to grab and go are essential when you have lots of family and friends over  and you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen serving everyone or to have an ever growing dish pile up in the kitchen.

{DIY} SPARKLY MARSHMALLOW HEARTS CUPCAKE TOPPERS

As you may remember, last month we entered a Gingerbread House contest from MyCandyCrafts.com (Candy.com’s sister company) and we won. Little did I know that this would lead to them asking me to be a blog contributor on their Ideas blog. This is a HUGE honor considering the amount of traffic this site gets and the other creative bakers/decorators that are already guest blogging for them.  I’m talking about total pros such as Kristan Roland from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen, Melissa Diamond from My Cake School, Glory Albin from Glorious Treats, and Shelly Jaronskyfrom Cookies and Cups. I was excited and nervous all at the same time!

So without further due, here is our first guest post…
