Chris, yes, "flower" was a middle or elisabethan spelling of flour - and in italian they might say "fior di grano" even if the usual word is farina - fior means flower. so i figured bloem sounded enough like bloom to be flower, therefore flour. (there's a bit of the detective in me). so poedersuiker is icing sugar, but isn't icing sugar powdered sugar? the fine powderlike sugar without visible grains?
