    Try this website: http://www.mexicansugarskull.com/mexicansugarskull/

    It's probably too late to order them, but you could make them.

    And by the way, I learned about this from a 'Trixie Beldon' book my daughter had.

    Good luck trying to get away with this one, too.

    Seriously. Good luck.

    Are there any ethnic stores near you? We have a couple gorcery stores in the area that have "ethnic aisles" that sell every type of thing you could imagine and some you never knew existed... I'd check there, first... :)

    When I was in high school, our Spanish Class made peanut butter skulls for Day of the Dead. I don't remember the recipe, but I know it was easy. I remember peanut butter and powdered sugar. It made a "dough" then when made balls and used our (clean, sanitized) fingers to pinch in the chin and make the eyes. We also made tissue paper flowers. We used sequins to decorate the eyes of our skulls, but took them off to eat of course. You could use decorative candies though.
