I just bought Glutino Icing Sugar (www.glutino.com). However, it has no directions on how to prepare it since it definately needs something done with it since it is just very finely ground sugar. I was thinking of adding water, does anyone know how to prepare this? Also, I was wondering why I would buy Gluten-Free Sugar when I could use Confectioner's Sugar and make icing too...does the latter contain gluten or what is the difference of this icing?

Any help would be very much appreciated since I am hoping to prepare cupcakes this weekend.

Thanks in advance.

yep, you usually add just a little tiny bit of water to get it to the consistency you want. milk is fairly common, but I've used orange juice for the flavor of it as well.

I haven't tried this particular product and am not gluten free yet- BUT!

I am a baker and make tons of icing.. some brands of powdered/confectioners/icing sugar (all names for fine sugar) have things in them to make them stay nice and powdery... these items vary, but from an icing making experience standpoint- the ones that work best are just pure sugar and cornstarch.. and that is gluten free.. I tend to buy Meijer Brand in 4 pound bags on a regular basis!

I am waiting to go gluten free until my test results come back and they do the biopsy...
