Pros: Makes a terrific Royal icing. Very decorative.
Domino's brands are well known and trusted. I do not do a lot of baking but when I do I love to decorate my cakes and cookies to my hearts content. I'm an artist and this is where I have the most fun.
I'm also a grandmother and I find the children and I can do marvelous things with confectioner's sugar. It makes the best and easiest Royal icing.
I also love the confectioner's sugars when used with stencils. It can create lovely designs. It enhances anything you bake. Once you shake some lovely confectioner's sugar on a donut, cake or cupcake it amps it up dramatically and makes it look pretty darn professional. It's wonderful making icing but when you wnat to skip that step dusting with confectioner's sugar will make your baked item look finished and give it a great taste.
