Alfeniques, A Sweet and Colorful Tradition

San Luis de la Paz, Gto. Tuesday, November 1, 2011.  Alfeniques are figures of flour sugar or sugar icing that are made to decorate the altars of the dead.  The most common ones are shaped like skulls, coffins, fruits, animals and angels.  At the Plazuela, we talked with Mrs. Guadalupe Granados, whose family has there a stand of this candy, and who told us about the long history they have manufacturing them.
