How to make icing sugar at home: step by step
The first thing is to mix the sugar with the cornstarch and grind everything little by little at maximum power as much as possible. You stop the mincer, stir and spray again until it reaches the point that you like the most.
Once you have all the crushed sugar as fine as possible, you have to aerate the mixture so that it does not become excessively caked.
Sift several times to make it as loose as possible.
My tips and tricks
- For every 100 grams of sugar you need 3 grams of starch or cornstarch.
- The starch is put so that it absorbs the moisture from the sugar and does not cake. It is used as an anti-caking agent.
- Apart from the grinder you can use a blender, a coffee grinder or the thermomix.
- You can also sift it with a fine mesh strainer.
- This icing sugar can be used to decorate cakes , cakes , cookies , meringue to make it softer …
