Pan de Muerto

The origin of “Mexican Day of the Dead bread”, is known as “pan de muerto”. First and foremost, let’s clarify that it’s not made from the deceased! The name reflects the season in which it’s enjoyed. This delectable treat is steeped in tradition and is typically consumed in October and November.

If you’re a fan of Disney’s Coco, you might already have a soft spot for the vibrant culture of Mexico. In the movie, Miguel’s journey through the Land of the Dead showcases the importance of this holiday, and pan de muerto plays a starring role as an offering to honour loved ones who have passed away. It’s not just a delicious pastry; it’s a symbol of love and remembrance.

For all our fellow Mexicans who are already well-versed in the history of pan de muerto, we’d like to invite you to try it right here at The Clever Cupcakes. We’re proud to say that we received countless positive reviews about the quality and flavor of our pan de muerto last year, and we’re up for a challenge.
