I have a small digital kitchen scale and use it to measure my baking and candle/soap ingredients.

Here's a conversion chart from Domino Sugar:

1 lb. = 3-3/4 cups unsifted

But you should always sift your powdered sugar to remove lumps so the sifted amount of sugar would closer to 4 cups of powdered sugar in a 1 lb. bag.

I am so glad I'm not the only person left without a kitchen scale. I am convinced I do need one. I have tried the conversion of lbs to cups and its not the same. My icing recipe calls for 3 lbs of PS and when I buy a 2lb bag and 1lb bag the icing always comes out perfect but if I try to do cup measurements its always seems to be off.
