Sanding Sugar, sometimes also known as Coarse Sugar, is a coarse grained Sugar that is perfect for making a very dry Frosting that can later be sanded or carved into desired decorations and shapes.


Sanding Sugar is made from refined Sugar Cane Sugar or Sugar Beet Sugar.

Culinary Uses

Sanding Sugar will also allow a frosting to dry to a smudge-proof state on pastries and cold Desserts, while lending both items an extra dimension of texture. The large crystals can also reflect light and give a shimmering appearance to dessert presentations.
