    You're getting some wrong answers here, which might matter.  If this is just to sprinkle over a cooked cake, no biggie.  But if it goes into something you're baking, it will matter. 

    The first one means you take 1 cup powdered sugar, sift it, and what's left is what you use.  The 2nd means you keep sifting until you have a 1 full cup of powdered sugar (probably start with 1 1/4 cups).

    Nothing...........

    Sifting the powdered sugar will aerate it and remove lumps. 

    If the recipe says..1 Cup powdered sugar, sifted you measure it out then sift. 

    If the recipe says 1 Cup sifted powdered sugar you sift then measure. 

    You would get more sugar in a cup if you do not sift it than if you sift it then measure it.  One of the reasons that weight is better/more accurate than volume.
