Mummy Bread

In Equador, "Guaguas de Pan" breads (bread babies) like these are made for All Saints Day and All Souls Day. People decorate the graves of relatives (usually those who died that year). They stay all day near the graveyard and "share" the food with the deceased. Typically, it goes with "Colada Morada" (Purple Porridge), beverage made of fruits and aromatic herbs.

My mom and I got these cute breads (They tasted like yummy dinner rolls) at the local Equadorian bakery along with the Colada Morada which was a warm, blackish purple liquid that had small pieces of pineapple and tasted like stewed berries.
