How to Make Flavored Powdered Sugar

Powdered sugar can be used instead of icing to add sweetness to baked goods such as donuts or cakes. It can also be sprinkled over French toast or other breakfast dishes. The addition of the powdered sugar makes a nice presentation for a special treat, including a surprise breakfast for a loved one. Make your own powdered sugar at home, and enhance the flavor with the addition of spices to create several varieties.
