Day of the Dead cake
This was a cake to celebrate all the November birthdays in the choir where I sing. The Nov. 2nd Day of the Dead celebration in Mexico is my favorite holiday and every year I have an altar full of candles, orange marigolds, sugar skulls and "pan de muertos", the special bread with "tears" running down the sides. I've tried to recapture the feel of one of these altars here. Hope you like it!
