Is icing sugar the same as powered sugar?

We realize that not everyone has metric equivalent information available, so we have updated the recipe to include standard measures as well.

What's the cup equivalent for 50g flour? 4 what of water? 2 what of butter? Ingredient list needs to be more precise.
