Yes - confectioner's sugar or icing sugar is powdered sugar with

about 3% cornflour.

You'll need a food processor, blender or mortar and pestle.

Weigh white sugar then add an additional 3% cornflour. Blitz it

ferociously in the processor or blender, or grind it in themortar,

till you achieve a fine powder.

When you rub the mixture between thumb and finger you should not

be able to feel any granules.

But... icing sugar is relatively inexpensive and it keeps

indefinitely.
