Painted Sugar Skulls

Img_2338For my girlies for Halloween, I decided to make a batch of sugar skulls as an extra treat to be tucked into a bag o' candy and decorated for fun.  Of course, I had to decorate one for myself too.

I decided to experiment with using paint instead of icing this year.  I chose t-shirt pain for ease of application.  It bled into the sugar just a little--especially where I got it on too thick--but not bad on the whole, and much easier than mixing a bunch of different colors of icing!
