Pan de Muertos, Mexican bakery in SW CT?

Miss Sue | Oct 16, 2006 01:13 AM

Greetings, everyone. Do any of you know a source for pan de muertos, the bread traditionally served on the Day of the Dead? Perhaps a good Mexican bakery in these parts (Stamford to Bridgeport)? I'd like to try the pan and would also like to find some sugar skulls, or at least some molds to make my own. Thanks for any advice.

In exchange, here's my tip for a book on papel picado, the intricate cut-paper craft of Mexico. (Papel picado is used a lot around El Dia de Los Muertos time.) The children's picture book book is called "Magic Windows/Ventanas Magicas," by Carmen Lomas Garza. I have nothing to do with the publisher nor do I know the author; I just like the book!
