I always thought cake flour was all purpose flour cut with cornstarch. A quick glance at the King Arthur Flour box shows me something different. And that was a tremendous lesson to learn. The answer is to combine and create what works best for any given situation. While I may not make a blend like King Arthur's, I am now looking at blending strong and weak flours to create flavorful and functional blends for moist delicious tender cakes.
