I have an icing recipe that calls for white sugar. I assume that is granulated sugar. Can I replace the granulated with powdered???? I hate the grittiness that the granulated seems to cause.
Any recipe with granulated sugar should require you to dissolve the sugar. Never should be gritty. hth
All it said to do was cream the butter, sugar and add vanilla. Maybe I should have just used powdered?? I just assumed "white sugar" meant granulated
Thats all powdered sugar is granulated sugar that has been ground fine to a powder.
Creaming should help dissolve the sugar. I wouldn't use powdered because it's been ground so fine the amount needed would differ and it's quite complicated to work out amounts. If you really dislike granulated try castor sugar which is a finer grind than granulated but the amount needed will be the same
Doesn't powdered sugar have corn starch added to it? Or is that what makes confectioners or icing sugar? I have always understood that these are used interchangeably and are all the same thing, just depends on where you are from...sort of like fondant and sugarpaste, same thing, different names.
White sugar does mean granulated, typically. Icing sugar/confectioners sugar are usually used to mean the same as each other.
