BTW, just sent my cousin some chocolate chip cookies I made last night and my Aunt showed me this picture showing how happy he was. He helped me in mixing batter and stuffs. ^_^
Kudos to the experience I've got from my five (5) years college life, I'd be able to humbly share some recipes, tutorials and DIYs with you guys. ^_^ But before we proceed, here's a little info about this strange stuff here. Icing sugar is very fine form of sugar and used for icing (obviously), dusting cakes, biscuits and other pastries. Oops! Don't get confused with caster sugar or baker's sugar! Ever heard of Peotraco, it's most popular brand here in PH. So if your recipe requires this powdered sugar in your precious cookies/cupcake masterpiece but not even available in your pantry or you're not in the mood to visit the grocery store, here's an easy peasy tutorial on how to make this very fine baking necessity.
LET'S GET STARTED!
Yield: 1 cup
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
1. Place everything in a blender or food processor. Blend for about 10 to 15 seconds, with 2 seconds interval between every pulse.
2. Check the consistency. It should be as fine as flour. Store in an air-tight container.
Of course this is cheaper than branded icing sugar, so why not try to make your own? It'll not only save you time and money but everything in between.
About the blender/grinder I used, it's an old Molinex blender. With all honesty, I can't find this one anywhere in the web. Perhaps this was one of the vintage-ish model from Molinex.
Bad news: Mom's camera was broken. Was this the end of my blogging career. Huhu. :(
