Combine egg whites, pure honey and vanilla extract. Pour honey mixture into
sugar. With your hands, thoroughly combine sugar and honey until you have a
consistency similar to wet sand. You know you have the right mix if you can
form a ball by squeezing the sugar in your hand.
Tightly pack the sugar mix into the molds and wipe off excess.
Invert onto a flat surface and allow to dry for 24 hours.
You are now ready to decorate your skulls! You can use royal icing*, sequins,
and/or edible paint to create your own masterpiece. Have fun!
* Royal Icing: 1 egg white for every 3 cups of powdered sugar. Add food
coloring of your choice. Mix ingredients until completely blended.
Makes 50 small calaveritas.
