Unless someone disagrees with me on this ID I'll go with A. farinacea. This is a species of Amanita, if you find it early enough, with be dusted all over pileus and stipe with as you call 'icing sugar', mycologically called floccose or flocculose - with delicately cottony fibrils . Often as the pileus opens more there will be pendulous remnants hanging down from its edge. Nice looking fungus.
