Make It At Home: Powdered Sugar

So, I was making a dessert this afternoon and it turned out pretty good. But it would be amazing if I had some kid of dipping frosting to go with it.

I checked the cabinets. No powdered sugar.

In Japan, powdered sugar is a ridiculous price and I was dreading going to the store to buy it. I looked up different frosting you could make without powdered sugar and there wasn't a recipe to make what I was looking for. Then I had an idea. What is powdered sugar? It is just really fine regular sugar. So, I decided to put some sugar in a blender. And it worked! Beautiful fluffy powdered sugar. Just what I needed! So if you're ever in a situation when you need powdered sugar and you don't have it, or you just don't want to pay for it here is how you make it:

Powdered Sugar
1 cup of regular white sugar*
A Blender or Food Processor

1. Add the sugar to the blender
2. Blend until it turns into powder
3. Smile, because you just saved yourself a trip to the store

*You could do this with brown sugar as well!!

Does anyone else have shortcuts to baking/cooking products? I would love to hear about them!


  1. Welcome back to blogging and great idea! I wouldn't have thought to do that! LOL

  2. What an easy way to make powdered sugar. Who would have thought it? I can even make this. haha. You know the playdough that you and Michele made. Aiden mixed it all together and now it looks like rainbow playdough. Keep posting. Love reading them.
