How to Make Icing Without Icing Sugar


Icing sugar – also called confectioners’ sugar or powdered sugar – is a staple in most icing recipes. Icing sugar has a fine, powdery consistency that easily blends with other ingredients. If you’re out of powdered sugar, you can make your own from granulated sugar, for example with a blender or food processor. Icing that uses granulated sugar without grinding it down usually requires some form of heat instead. Either way, you can make plenty of tasty icing recipes even if you don’t have icing sugar on hand.
