Default Powdered Sugar Box

How many cups or ounces are in a box of powdered sugar? I guessed 16
oz, but I was probably wrong since my frosting was very runny.

How big is the box?

One way to tell is to look at the fine print on the front.

Boxes of powdered sugar typically contain 16 ounces (1 pound weight). Bags
vary by size, but are usually in increments of a pound. I usually buy a 2
pound bag (32 ounces).

If the package doesn't tell you directly you can always look at the nutritional
label and multiply the serving size times the number of servings in the whole
package.

What were the other ingredients in the frosting? Butter maybe? From
experience, if you get butter more liqued than softened, you end up with
runny frosting. IMO, this has more of an impact than the amount of powdered
sugar.

Default Powdered Sugar Box

I was using a recipe that called for a box of powdered sugar and the
recipe didn't have the equivalent in ounces or cups. I had a used 32
ounce bag, no scale and too lazy to go the grocery store since it was
late at night. Since there are 8 ounces in a cup, I thought I'd try 16
ounces by volume. I know 16 ounces by volume is not the same as 16
ounces by weight, so I was wondering if 1). how many cups\ounces were
in a box.

According to issue number 6 of Everyday Food, a 1 lb. box of powdered sugar
is equal to 3 and 2/3's cups. If you used two cups, you were off by 1 2/3's
cups...
