Homemade Powdered Sugar

You know by now that nothing gets us more excited than finding our we can make homemade versions of things we normally would buy in the store! But powdered sugar seemed like one of those things you just HAVE to buy. There's no way you can make your own....right? WRONG! Just like brown sugar, you can DEFINITELY make your own! Homemade Powdered sugar is not only one of the easiest things you can make, but it is also cheaper than the store bought stuff! Plus you can make just what you need, so you know it will always be fresh! (Thanks to My New Old School for this great idea!)


What You Need:
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • Blender or Food Processor
  • 2 Tbsp. Cornstarch (optional)

In your blender or food processor, add the sugar and cornstarch (if using it). Supposedly commercial powdered sugar has cornstarch in it to help prevent it from clumping.Blend it up for about 30 seconds or so. Check on it and blending more if needed.

Ta-Da! You now have powdered sugar! Crazy, right???

Pin It!


  1. This will be great for powdered sugar treatment of our bees (for varroa mites). They really don't need the cornstarch!

  2. does it actually taste and work like store bought powdered sugar? Like could I make icing with it?

  3. i actually just use plain sugar in an electric coffee grinder and it always works just perfectly! i use it for icing and everything. :) lisa

  4. So good to know! I always seem out of powdered sugar when I need it. Pinning it!

  5. I love any idea that simplifies my happy!
