I was wondering what powdered sugar is? I haven't been to many cake decorating shops, but I haven't seen Domino or any other brand I have seen on this forum (I'm an Aussie).
Does anyone know what the equivalent is here to Domino etc?
Powdered sugar is simply regular sugar that has been pulverized into a fine powder instead of granules. It's also called "Confectioner's sugar" here in the U.S. All grocery stores here carry it in the baking aisle. It's not a specialty item. You can make your own using a coffee grinder.
It is hard to make your own. You really can't get it as powdery as needed
It is mixed w/cornstarch (usually 3%) so it doesn't lump together.
To make fondant you must have an equivilant but I don't know what it would be called.
It can also be called icing sugar or I've even heard it called 10x sugar. It should be in any market or grocers right along with your granulated sugar.
ahhhhhh, now icing sugar IS something I have heard of!!! Thankyou!
