Whether you bake as a hobby or bake for a living, powdered sugar is probably a big part of your life. And if you're really into it, then you know the stuff gets everywhere. Where have you found powdered sugar? Underneath the microwave. Stuck to the side of the coffeepot. In the pocket of your apron. Inside your shoes. In your hair. Smeared across your face. On the paws of Fluffy the cat.

After awhile, you just get used to it. If your kitchen is layered with a thin dusting of confectionary sugar, you might make a great pastry chef. Extra points if you've ever left the house and gone out in public with a powdered sugar handprint on your butt.
