making caster sugar
Hi, Has anybody had success making caster sugar from granulated? I tried in a liquidizer and broke the motor.It cost nearly 200 euros to repair.I bake alot of cakes and if some manufacturer came up with a product that can do it,it would save alot of money in time! What do you all think?

You can get 25kg bags of all types of sugar , flour and other ingredients from cash and carry or commercial suppliers, it works out much cheaper and most offer free delivery . They will sell to anyone not just restaurants etc, though you may have to set up an account. There are 1,000s of them all over the place.
Not much difference in price? Hah! Tesco...Silver Spoon Granulated Sugar, 98p per kg. Silver Spoon Caster Sugar, £1.99 per kg. That's twice as much. Can't understand the price difference but the term 'rip-off' springs to mind. Recently I've found that Whitworths Granulated Sugar seems to have much smaller grains than from other manufacturers. In fact, some of the Whitworths sugar is quite dust-like.
