I loved my skull. I showed my students at school and they loved them too

Welcome to my Etsy Shop! Handmade & One-of-a-Kind! Sugar Skulls, Cards & Illustrations.

Hi my name is Kate, and I am the maker and chief inspector behind the shop Kateillustr8s!

In 2010, I lived in Patzcuaro, Michoacan; known for their magical Day of the Dead celebration! I started making sugar skulls in 2011, for a party held at the Mexican restaurant where I worked. I volunteered for the project knowing very little about molding sugar, but a lot about Dia de Los Muertos! I fell in love with the process and VOILA! This Etsy shop was born!

I love to make sugar skulls as a way to celebrate and remember my travels through Mexico! They are colorful, one-of-a-kind treasures, made with LOVE! May your purchase transport you to the candle-lit alters of Michoacan!

Please feel free to message me with any custom orders and requests!
