Kitchen Dilema! So Much Drama!!! Oh... And How to Make Your Own Powdered Sugar

So I had decided to make my first dessert for the blog. I make desserts all the time but they usually consist of a mix in a box and a can of deliciousness on top. So I had to find one that's a little more interesting than Duncan Hines can offer.

Ok so I found this awesome recipe but stay tuned... The point of this post is to show you my DILEMA! One of the main ingredients in my "mystery" dessert is powdered sugar. I was so mad at myself when I realized I didn't have enough! I remember now that Dustin used it to make buttercream frosting (half of which has been sitting in back of the fridge for about 2 months. I really need to clean out the fridge.)  "Uhhhhhhh! I don't want to go the stoooooore!" I said in an incredibly whiny voice to Bette Davis Jr., who stared up at me with no reply.

I got on the ol' Google machine, trying to figure out if using regular white sugar would make a huge difference. I came upon this site that saved the day! I found a super easy way to make my own powdered sugar.


1 1/2 cup granulated sugar (Apparently you can use any granulated sweetener.)
1 tablespoon corn starch


1. Put both ingredients in a blender.

2. Blend on high until the sugar is a powdery consistency. (It took me about a minute.)

That's it! I put my homemade powdered sugar back in the canister and I was a better woman for it! I'm very pleased to know that I don't have to buy powdered sugar again if I don't want to. SO THERE!



  1. I know! After learning it I was shocked that I had never even heard of this idea. It's so easy!


Do you have a comment, question or suggestion? I'd love to hear from you!
