I am in the middle of making a cake with the white chocolate buttercream icing but I have a problem with the measurements. I want the icing to turn out right the first time. The recipe calls for 4 oz sugar. Ounces are usually used for liquids so when using a solid, would I consider it the same amount and use my 1/2 cup measuring cup? None of my dry measuring devices has ounces on it, only my liquids do.

Here is a link to the recipe:

4 oz of sugar equals 9 tablespoons + 2/3 teaspoons.

I like this link for odd measurements it says 1 oz is a heaping TBS.

HTH! ~Mindy

Thank you so much Diane! Perfect timing too as I am now ready to add my sugar to my egg whites.
