"I ran out of powdered sugar today and decided to make my own. Since my DD (darling daughter) bought me a Magic Bullet for Christmas I used that to make the sugar. It was fast and so easy and the clean up was a snap. You can use raw cane sugar or plain white sugar for this. I added the extra 1 tablespoon of sugar in this recipe because Zaar wouldn't let me publish this with only one ingredient."

"Real powdered sugar has cornstarch added to it. My niece is alergic to corn so until I found this we had to be careful not to use powdered sugar around her. You might want to be cautious using this in recipies that actually need the cornstarch part of the powdered sugar. This is an excellent substitute. Thanks for sharing!"
"OM GOSH!!! It tasted better to me,also. I have a low tolernece to corn,also. AND corn surup is still in almost everything,cept Hunts brands. If I only use the Magic Bullet for this, It is sooo worth it. Put it in the small container,covered with lid..good to go, And shaker lids...WOW,Thanks JOEY...will look at your other recepies!"
"I do the same thing with my coffee grinder. ABout half the price of buying powdered sugar. But true, be careful of the cornstarch consideration as brought up by other reviewers. Sometimes it matters, sometimes it doesn't."
"Thank you for this idea! I was making German pancakes this morning and realized I had nothing to top them with. I can notice a difference between this and store bought powdered sugar, but I actually liked this better!"
"Wow! This is great! Brown raw sugar is purchased when it is on sale. White sugar is purchased also. I tried this with white sugar and it is great! I was given a magic bullet also and never thought of this, it is less expensive than powdered sugar! Thanks for posting!"
