Being a recipe tester, I keep a pretty stocked kitchen. But I’m only human and occasionally don’t have what I need on hand. But that doesn't always mean I’m headed back to the store. Many ingredients can be easily made at home. Powdered Sugar is a great example of something we think we need to buy, but can be easily whipped up at home.
Powdered sugar is so easy to make yourself! All you need is a blender or food processor and the recipe is essentially in the name - pop some sugar in your blender and blend until it’s a fine powder. Use a little more than half the amount you need so if you need a cup of powdered sugar, use a little more than 1/2 a cup of granulated sugar.
