Confectioner’s Sugar, also called 10-X, is nothing more than granulated white sugar that has been finely ground to 10 times smaller than its original crystal size, and then cornstarch is added to prevent clumping. This sugar is prized for its “dissolvability” and is used in candy and icing applications. Lula’s for Lunch…and More! Catering makes a FABulous Citrus White Chocolate Ganache using 10-X – enjoy this pic of our 7-Spice Cake with the ganache drizzled all over it.
Did you know you can make your own confectioner’s sugar? Simply put one cup of granulated sugar in a blender (NO…not a food processor – it doesn’t work!!) with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch added, and blend away for exactly 3 minutes. Poof! You’ve magically whipped up your own 10-X!! Give yourself a smooch.
