Box of Powdered Sugar - Weight or amount please?

The recipe I'm using calls for 3/4 to 1 full box powdered sugar.
How much is in a full box?
We are unable to purchase boxes where I live... or at least to my knowledge.

3 3/4C sifted. Be SURE to sift, no matter how much you use, unless you are creaming it with butter with an electric mixer.

Gobo, 1 cup is 8 oz which is about 250gm. 250gm is equivalent to 250ml.
1 cup of sifted icing sugar is 185gm

By the way Gobo, a box of icing sugar in most recipes should be 1 pound which is about 500gm.

250 gm is only equal to 250 ml when measuring water! One is a measure of volume and the other is a measure of weight.

A pound of anything is equal to 454 gms.
