Pre-Registration is Required Online

Join Sproutycakes Bakery for a fun afternoon celebrating Dia de los Muertos! During this class, you will learn about the tradition of creating Calavera (Sugar Skulls) and get to decorate your very own Calavera to bring home with you! We will have a decorated Altares de Muertos and we encourage students to bring photos of their departed loved ones to place on the altar to honor their spirits and provide inspiration. The Sproutycakes team will be on hand to teach piping and decorating
techniques and help you create a beautiful piece of art to keep and treasure.

All ages are welcome to join us but children must be accompanied by an adult.
Price is $30 per student making a skull, adults that are accompanying a child are free, as long as they do not wish to create a skull of their own.

This class will be held during the Garden’s Dia de los Muertos event!
