    I only have chunky peanut butter… will that matter? ‘Cause it looks like we’re gonna be frozen in for the next coupla days, and I have all the other ingredients. I could do some serious damage to this over the weekend, if I can use chunky… (and then I’ll BE chunky…er….)

    TRAVESTY!!! I don’t have enough powdered sugar!!! Maybe I’ll pulverize some granulated in the food processor…

      Ok, cake’s in the oven. I substituted granulated sugar for powdered sugar:

      for 1 c. powdered sugar: combine 1 c. granulated sugar with 1 tsp. corn starch. Pulverize in blender until kinda powdery. It won’t have the same pack-y consistency, but it still seems to work.

      I’ll letcha know in about an hour…
