Of course, you can buy garlic powder, but those of us who love working in the kitchen and having our own homemade ingredients get a sense of satisfaction from making it ourselves.  Homemade garlic powder is stronger than store-bought, so you will need to use less. 

Homemade Garlic Powder
Peel the garlic cloves and slice thinly. 
Oven drying:  Lay slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet with sides not touching.  Dry in a 120 F oven for several hours, until they are completely dried.  Turn them periodically.
Dehydrator:  Lay slices on trays in a single layer with sides not touching.  Turn pieces and rotate trays periodically until slices are completely dried.  This will take several hours. 
Place dried garlic slices in a blender and blend into a powder.  Store in a shakeable container.  I save empty spice bottles for this type of thing.
