This sweet bread is prepared as part of the traditional celebration of Día de Muertos (2nd of November, Day of the Dead) in Mexico. Its classic presentation is powdered with sugar, however there are other recipes that call for sesame seeds, it depends on the location and tastes.

You can find the original recipe here (in Spanish and with video demonstration)
