Make your own caster sugar by putting a small amount at a time in a blender or food processor, until you get the desired texture. Keep going and you will end up with icing sugar.
Sorry, can't help with marg, don't use it.

I use Remia margarine works very well in cakes. A lot of people I know just use the granulated sugar they sell here instead of caster sugar. It seems to work just fine in everyday cakes and I only splash out on caster sugar if it's a special occasion
