Powdered Sugar

Powdered sugar, also known as confectioners' sugar, icing sugar, or XX sugar, is very fine sugar produced by pulverizing granulated sugar, especially a coarser variety used for fruits or cold beverages.

Recipes

  3. Orange Cake

    Whipped cream and orange sections fill these light-as-a-feather cake layers. Forget frosting-- powdered sugar and mint leaves keep the dessert citrusy fresh.
