Sanding Sugar in BKK

Recommended Posts

I am baking some items which call for using  "sanding sugar" as part of the icing (frosting).  I have checked at the bake supply shop that I usually use and they do not have it.  At least not by the name "sanding sugar".  Sanding sugar is a large crystal sugar (coarse grained sugar) that does not melt easily.  It is used in decorating mostly. 

 

The shops have "castor sugar" and "donut sugar" (in addition to the regular granulated sugar and icing sugar) but I do not think those are sanding sugar....

 

 

 

Thanks in advance.

Otherwise know as Crystal sugar, or Sugar crystals.

 

You could use "Coarse" sugar as an alternative but you wont get the "twinkle" result.

I would try coarse sugar as long as it is white.  I've only seen tan-colored coarse sugar.

 

My project is to apply the sanding sugar (or white coarse sugar) to white icing to look like snow.  

It is a cake for Christmas.

 

Do you have a source for white coarse sugar?

Sorry no, but you could try, spreading white icing sugar thin on a baking tray, let it set then break & blitz it in a blender to make grains that will give the appearance of textured snow ? sprinkle that on top of wet icing to set.
