Anyone tried this? And how did it turn out? Searched threads, 2 came up with no conclusive answer. Thanks!

Following because the PS I usually buy at Costco is now 6x and I passed it up because I wasn't sure how it would turn out in buttercream, MMF, etc...

icon_biggrin.gif I guess we're just going to have to bite the bullet and find out ourselves. I just hate to have to buy 50lbs just to find out it won't work lol.

seriously! I wonder if only a few Costcos are carrying the 6x stuff and that is why no one has ever used it?? I just can't believe that NO ONE on CC has any experience with it....

I did just google "6x powdered sugar" and the 1st several hits I got were from the Wilton boards and there are a few discussions about it.

and this:
"Confectioners (or Powdered) Sugar:
This sugar is granulated sugar ground to a smooth powder and then sifted. It contains about 3% cornstarch to prevent caking. Confectioners sugar is available in three grades ground to different degrees of fineness. The confectioners sugar available in supermarkets is the finest of the three and is used in icings, confections and whipping cream. The other two types of powdered sugar are used by industrial bakers. "
