I recently fell prey to regular icing sugar (which resembled crushed concrete and was impossible to work with) and so was very pleased to find this alternative. It works a treat - the icing was smooth, easy to work with and tasted great. I will definitely use again rather than risk bodging my next baked effort with regular icing sugar.
great icing sugar
produces glossy icing. have never had mine form rock hard lumps. I always ensure that bag within is pegged to keep airtight - perhaps this helps?
Only using this because...
the plain tate and lyle icing sugar is so horribly grtity now. Yes, it hardens, but at least it makes a smooth icing. PLEASE Ocado - get Witworths.
Full of lumps that don't really dissolve. Hard in a couple of day after opening. Definitely poor quality, doesn't worth its cost.
Goes rock hard after opening
If you are planning to use this all in one go then it's fine, but it's a bit of a one use wonder. Got it back out of the cupboard and it was rock hard - not the usual thing where icing sugar gets a few lumps but the entire bag in large rocks. Have tried everything to use it - food processor on dry icing sugar, mixing as icing and then blitzing in processor. The best was some hefty pummelling with a rolling pin to get it down to between grape and raisin sized pieces, then mix with boiling water followed by vigorous stirring - only left a few lumps! But really, life's too short to have to go through that to reuse icing sugar, and it's going in the bin as soon as the (standard) replacement arrives.
Makes excellent shiny icing compared to normal icing sugar. Works brilliantly with food colour gels
