Can I use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar?

I’m making a gingerbread house and the recipe asks for 1 and a quarter cups of granulated sugar. It also asks for 1 and three quarters of brown sugar. Would I be able to just add 3 cups of brown sugar?
Would I be able to use white sugar then? I’ve no idea where to get granulated sugar.

    If you’re making a gingerbread house with it; it doesn’t really matter what it tastes like, right? You’re not going to eat it. So, no problem.

    Hi Lucy,For this recipe , you will need to mix the sugars or the gingerbread would come out too soft it is the granulated sugar that will give it a bit of crispness enough so that the sides of your house wouldn’t flop over. I hope this helps. All the best. Rab

    no because brown sugar is lighter than granulated sugar but if u do want add a lot more sugar.

    In the US brown sugar is granulated white sugar with molasses added to it. Just think of the recipe as having more molasses and a little less pure sugar. If you care about the taste, you might want to try Mexican piloncillo, which are cones of heated and dried sugar cane juice. The piloncillo also retains more nutrients. The problem is that the piloncillo would have to be weighed to get an equivalency.

    white sugar = granulated sugar

    follow the recipe as written so gingerbread is strong enough to stand up and bear the weight of the decorations
