We know that 1 cup of water weighs 8 ounces, but because honey is more viscous than water, 1 cup of honey weighs 12 ounces. Powdered sugar directly from the box or plastic bag weighs 4 1/2 ounces per cup; therefore, a 1-pound box (or 16 ounces) provides approximately 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. If a recipe asks for powdered sugar, 4 ounces of powdered sugar will equal 1 dry measuring cup.

Powdered sugar becomes lighter and fluffier when sifted, so it occupies more space in the cup.
