My friend's fudge recipe calls for frosting sugar? Could someone tell me what it is?

          Thanks, Babette. I did not want to assume that "frosting" sugar was same as "icing" sugar, logical though it seems. And I did not see the word "frosting' while researching. Thanks so much.

        Frosting Sugar is sugar meant for frosting one's hair or giving highlights... No seriously, it's sugar which has been left out in the cold when the temperature dips below 32°F/0°C... No, seriously, it's poison, pure poison... ;-)
