Default 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.

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.

How about looking for an office administration job for an aviation company?

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.
