Personal Notes:
To make cake flour from plain flour...
Measure one cup of flour and take out 2 tbls. of flour...now add 2 tbls. corn starch. This makes
one cup of cake flour. (for 3 cups fl. take out 6 tbls. fl. and add 6 tbls corn starch. Now sift 3
times then measure out the 3 cups called for in the recipe.

FYI; When a recipe says cups of (flour sifted) it means measure before sifting
When a recipe says cups of (sifted flour) it means measure after sifting.
