I've sorted out my food cupboards today and seem to have stacks of icing surgar and caster sugar for some strange reason.
Anyone have any brainwaves as to what I can do with it?
TIA xx

bake millions of cakes and ice them all?

Make butter cream and freeze it for later?

Make peppermint creams?

Why worry about it? It keeps.

Nah not worried - just want to use the stuff up. Not sure why I bought it in the first place - especially the amount of boxes I've got!

anorak - until I moved this January I had a box of icing sugar in my cupboard that came out at Christmas to be sprinkled over the mince pies - the only time I bake - I think the sell by date was 1998!

home-made fruit vodka, gin or whatever
home-made sweets
lemon curd (or lime)
candied fruits

We sprinkle icing sugar on berries.

Of course Twiglett - I forgot about that one. We make those at Parent and Toddler group. Once icing is on we decorate with sweets - smarties, dolly mixture, hundreds and thousands etc. Shall be making those in the next few days. Thanks for your suggestions everyone. x
