Day of the Dead is a huge Mexican celebration. Families create altars, visit cemeteries and get together to remember those that are no longer with us. This colorful celebration is filled with flavors and aromas, and pan de muerto is one of the traditional treats for this holiday. If you're in Mexico during this time, you'll notice the bakeries are filled with different varieties days in advance. In Guanajuato, a state made famous by its creative bakeries, you can find the most traditional sugared pan de muerto with bone decorations as well as a variety of works of art in different shapes and bright colors. My favorite version has to be the one that is covered in white lemon glaze. My grandmother would come home with a bag filled with these delicious breads to serve with atole. The recipe I'm sharing with you today is inspired by these white pastries symbolizing the tombs and decorated with white glaze and a pink sugar cross. I hope you like it!
