    Great post 🙂 I’ve never thought of confectioners sugar – is that the same as caster sugar?
    Keep going you’re doing great with your blog 🙂

      Thanks 🙂
      Confectioners’ sugar is powdered sugar, it’s not the same as caster sugar which is a very fine sugar. I think it’s also called icing sugar in the U.K.
