Cornstarch in Conf. Sugar
 
Do virtually all brands of confectioners sugar contain cornstarch? Is
this something to be aware of when a recipe simply calls for conf.
sugar, or is it "no big deal"?

Yes.

Is this something to be aware of when a recipe simply calls for conf.


If you're following a decent recipe, you won't need to make any
adjustments - if that's what you want to know.

IMO, "no big deal." AFAIK, they all contain a bit - I believe it has to
do with preventing caking.

If it's not too late yet and someone's up for it, I'd love to make a collab entry. And great job to everyone as well, lots of fantastic works from this event.
