Making your own cake flour?

Forum: Cakes & Cake Decorating

I do, exactly that method – and it works great! I’ve been doing it for years now and have never noticed a difference between that and actual cake flour. Saves a ton of $$ :)

Sweetapolita has a post on flour – it’s very helpful – here’s the link. Fairly certain I remember her mentioning a method she has used or that you could use to make your own.
