John baked a Spanish Bread called
Pan de Muerto (Bread for the Dead)
as a project for his Spanish Class
Pan de Muerto is a type of bread traditionally baked in Mexico
during the week leading up to the "Day of the Dead"
which is celebrated on November 1 and 2.
It is a sweetened soft bread often decorated with
bone like pieces.
