A Few Great Bakeries

Bonus Scene: Mama Ines Mexican Bakery

The Mexican Day of the Dead is on November 2, and bakeries in Mexico make special sweet breads and colorfully decorated sugar skulls that people place on altars to honor their deceased love ones. In Lafayette, Indiana, at Mama Ines Bakery, Rosa Montoya shows us a “mortito” or little dead man, and some of the skulls that she sells from mid-October through early November.
