MAZAPÁN MINI BROOCH
Bread making mini sculptures.

The practice  of making bread to take to the cementeries for the Día de los Difuntos, November 2nd of each year, is as old as time. The practice of making this bread more permanent is about 80 years old when residents of Calderón, Ecuador, started to make hard dough out of wheat flour and water to form the traditional babies making them last much longer than a few days. Thus, the art of mazapán was born.
