What is castor sugar? I was thinking about trying a mud cake sometime or another and all of the recipes call for castor sugar. Is this something I can find at the grocery store? If not, are there any substitutes?

Thanks.

Castor sugar is a fine granulated white sugar - It is not as fine as Powdered sugar, but not as coarse as "regular" sugar.

As most mud-cake recipes call for the liquid ingredients to be melted, you could probably substitute with regular sugar, by weight.

Hope that helps! thumbs_up.gif

Yes you can substitute castor with normal sugar you just have to make sure it has dissolved. Just test with your finger and thumb.
