You know years ago when I made cinnamon scrolls I pulled the grill trays out and sat the bowl there over the oven as it warmed, Id totally forgotten! The car is a great idea too although not this morning, I had to pour water over it to get the ice off the windows so I could see to drive LOL

I had to look up castor sugar because I was thinking it was not what we call powederd sugar:

Castor or caster sugar is the name of a very fine sugar in Britain, so named because the grains are small enough to fit though a sugar "caster" or sprinkler. It is sold as "superfine" sugar in the United States.

Because of its fineness, it dissolves more quickly than regular white sugar, and so is especially useful in meringues and cold liquids. It is not as fine as confectioner’s sugar, which has been crushed mechanically (and generally mixed with a little starch to keep it from clumping).

So I'm thinking we don't have an allternative, Perhaps just whip up some in the food processor.

Helen....One of the best investment ever made was a bread machine.

CC I believe what you call confectioners sugar is what we call icing sugar - used to make frostings? We get pure icing sugar which has no corn starch added to it or regular which has the starch added.

Castor sugar is easy to create at home, I have a dry mill that does it, I dont see why a blender wouldnt do it too, its simply a finer grade of granual than regular sugar.

Bread machine would be a no go in this house hold although mum is bringing hers when she moves down here and that scares me a bit. DH is a fresh bread addict, if its there he will just start eating it and not stop till its all gone, I wouldnt bring a bread machine into this house because of him! I occasionally make zucchini bread or damper but just as a treat.
