Hi...I'm new to baking and have a dumb question. icon_redface.gif Do you sift the flour or confectioners sugar before measuring, or do you measure first and then sift? Thanks!

Hi and Welcome, Deanna1968. icon_smile.gif

Decoding CC acronyms:

When measuring flour or confectioner's sugar, you should always aerate first, then gently spoon the flour/sugar into a measuring cup. Draw a knife across the top of the cup to level.

Don't scoop and drag your cup through the flour or powdered sugar; and don't shake off the excess to level - this will not give you accurate measurements.
