Okay so i have a spur of the moment baking urge and want to make cupcakes but im out of powered sugar....i have lots of regular sugar though haha. Does anyone have a recipe for frosting which is similar to butter cream that doesn't use powered sugar??

Any help is appreciated I have home made chocolate cupcakes looking for your help.

There are some in the recipe section here on cc, but I've never used any of them...

I use a recipe for Italian Meringue Buttercream (IMBC) which does not call for powdered sugar. It calls for whipping egg whites and using a sugar syrup for sweetening. Then you add butter. I believe there are some recipes on CC.

Here is my buttercream recipe-

Cook one cup milk with one quarter cup flour. Keep stirring to boiling- (careful not to burn)

Cool to room temp.

Cream one cup sugar with one cup butter.

Add in Milk/flour... Beat together.....You can add 1 teaspoon vanilla, but I usually don't-too sweet with that.. Perfect without.

Enjoy !

You can put regular sugar in the blender and blend for a couple of minutes and it'll turn into powdered sugar. I watched a youtube video on it.

Here's one that I really like....

One Minute Frosting
1 C granulated sugar
3 T milk or cream
2 squares baking chocolate
1 egg
1/8 teas. salt
2 T butter 1 teas. vanilla

Combine the sugar, milk, chocolate and egg in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat. Bring to boil and stir for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add butter & vanilla. Beat with mixer until thick and creamy.

This recipe makes a fudgy type frosting and it's very easy. thumbs_up.gif

I think you were referring to the post about making powdered sugar in the BLENDER, not the mixer. Using a blender does turn granulated sugar into powdered sugar even though it's not as refined as buying it that way... it will still be a littly grainy.
