There's no way this is supposed to have 2 pounds of powdered sugar. 2 cups is very common in homemade frosting, I would try that.


So I finally just got around to trying this recipe.  The cake part is pretty good.  Nice and moist and not too dense.  The icing though ended up being way too runny.  I ended up adding soy milk to it to make it more of a glaze, which worked out pretty well.  With a few tweaks, this was great!


i imagine the p.sugar measure isn't far off. it says to add it 1/2 c at a time. p. sugar really "melts down" when mixed with wet ingredients, so i think it should be fine.


Is it really 2 pounds of powdered sugar?  This sounds good and would really like to try it for an office party tomorrow, but just wanted to double check the measurements.
