How to measure

How do you measure oddly shaped things? For instance, I'm currently cooking my cornbread dressing, and the recipe calls for 12 cups of 1 inch chunks of cornbread. I'm no geometry whiz, but I'm pretty sure that rectangular pieces don't fit well into round measuring cups. Is there any better suggestion than just guessing? Soggy (or dry) dressing would be so sad!
