We are unable to purchase boxes where I live... or at least to my knowledge.
A full measured cup of powdered sugar weighs 92 grams. Any recipe will call for measurements rather than weights as the degree of fineness varies with manufacturer. I use a my electric spice grinder, cleaning thoroughly after each use. You can use a food processor to make powdered sugar by pulsing to the desired fineness.

92 grams per cup powdered sugar

a cup of powdered sugar weighs 92 grams. However, one does not use weights of powdered sugar in any recipe I know, but rather volume measurements.
