Making frosting

Posted by on Feb. 12, 2012 at 2:17 AM

I'm trying to turn sweet-tarts into powder/sugar to mix in the frosting I am making, but I'm having a hard time crushing them, a rolling pin isn't working and crushing them with a spoon is taking a long time and almost to hard for me to do now, any advice on how to crush them fast and less difficult?

by hand- use a hammer on cement, put them in a bag and smash away. or try a food processor if you have one with a really sharp blade.

Triple baggy them and beat them with a hammer. Works every time to crush things.

We do this at culinary school only we use the meat mallet.

Maybe a pill crusher if you have one available.  Some pharmacies may even give them away for free.  A mortar and pestle(sp) may also work if you dont want to go all caveman with a hammer LOL.

Do you have a spice grinder? That would work wonderfully! Otherwise use baggies. Put it into a baggy & beat the crap out of it.

That worked pretty good eh?  I dont mess with the pressed candies so not sure what would break them apart.
