Pan de Muertos (Mexican Bread of the Dead)

I made the bread for a project I had to do in Spanish class. I actually haven't presented yet, but I will tomorrow. I set aside a little for my family to try and they all thought it was really good. If you can't tell, I tried making the bread into the shapes of skulls and crossbones. I doubled the recipe in order to make two loaves, which I judged to be enough for my class. It really is a sweet bread, especially with the sticky glaze, which is really good too. The bread seems dry without it. I've never made bread before this, but I think it was a success!
