What do you mean by sifted cake flour? Is that regular white flour or another kind of flour?

Jassie - from Houston, TX

Cake flour is the most highly refined flour is milled from soft wheat. It is used where a delicate and tender texture is desired. Most grocery stores sell cake flour, but unlike all-purpose flour, which is usually sold in bags, it is sold in 2 pound boxes. If you don't have cake flour available, remove 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour from each cup, then stir in 2 tablespoons cornstarch.
