How to make icing with no icing sugar?

I'm stuck at home making a cake and can't find any powdered sugar. Can you make icing without powdered sugar, and how?

    Silky Vanilla Butter Frosting

    This is not your usual butter-cream made with powdered sugar. Butter is beaten into a flour-thickened base to make an exquisitely light and creamy frosting. Not gaggy sweet like those made with powdered sugar, but sweet enough to be the perfect compliment for a cake. Make sure the base is completely cooled before beating in the butter. I added in 15 minutes cooling time, but it will vary depending on conditons.

    1 cup sugar

    1/2 cup all-purpose flour

    1 1/3 cups milk

    1 cup butter, softened

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    3 1/4 cups

    1. In 2-quart saucepan, thoroughly combine sugar and flour.

    2. With wire whisk, gradually stir in milk until smooth.

    3. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture has thickened and boils.

    4. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

    5. Remove from heat and cool completely.

    6. In medium bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter until light and fluffy.

    7. Gradually beat in milk mixture; beat in vanilla

    2 cups milk

    10 Tablespoons flour

    Set the burner to a medium flame. Cook milk and flour together and stir until it achieves a slow boil. Continue to stir until it thickens to the consistency of pudding or custard. Chill. Combine granulated sugar, Crisco and vanilla in mixing bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Add flour and milk mixture until well blended and light.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here https://biturl.im/aU0WR

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    If you have a food processor you can put regular sugar in and pulse it until you have a finer grain sugar, then just mix in a bit of corn starch. Most powdered sugar that you buy has corn starch in it.
