Cheers, scully! Good to know that would have been your answer had I asked peeps on here :D

It can be a bit messy with sugar dust though, can't it? I think I might have tried it ages ago with my Bamix upright blender and the grinding attachment. Maybe I should try again next time!

I do this all the time with my Bamix … I just leave it for a while to let the dust settle before opening ;)

When I have tried to create caster sugar from granulated I have always found it quite hard to get the consistency right. I find it too easy to end up with a more powdery sugar which I think affects the sweetness of what I'm making. It's useful in an emergency but I prefer to keep caster sugar in the cupboard - it lasts years ;) .
