    BJ, why not make sure and weigh out a pound on some scales? then measure it by the cupfull.? But actually, according to my measurements iin my cooking text, 1 lb. of powdered sugar is 2-2/3 cups. That is why bakers are taught to measure everything instead of using the cupfull system LOL

    According to all the references that I checked it is 3 1/2 -4 cups equal 1 pound of powdered sugar. Here is a link for many substitutions and equivalents for cooking:
