Hi, I'm trying to find a large bag of cake flour so I can try JanH's Master mix. I usually get my flour in 25lb bags at sam's, but they only had bread and all purpose. I can only find the small boxes of soft silk at the grocery. They really add up!
Thanks,
Jodie

Try King Arthur Flour.com. They have a lot of baking supplies.

If you live near a GFS they will order one for you.

I don't know where you are located but if you have a GFS (Gordon Food Service) near you they can special order 50 lb. bags. They may take a few weeks but the savings is well worth it!

You may want to make your own cake flour by reducing each cup of AP flur by 1 Tblsp and sifting in 1 Tblsp of corn starch. It would seem to be much more cost effective when doing a large project.

icon_eek.gif I think the OP was talking about getting a 50# bag.

GFS has Express Order .... they can get most anything the next day. Flour is a pretty standard commodity, so you should be able to pick up the flour in a day or two at your local GFS store.

That's what I get for simply scanning the posts instead of really reading!

mom2spunkynbug Posted 4 Oct 2008 , 12:24am

I have been wondering the same thing!

Where else can I find some? (I'm no where near a GFS)

Thanks icon_smile.gif

indydebi Posted 4 Oct 2008 , 12:39am

Have you talked to Sam's about ordering it for you? They actually have a person in each store who is a Customer Liason. I've had them check into pricing and ordering special items for me all the time. Some they can get ... some they can't. Just talk to someone at the Cust Svc Desk.

sillyjodes Posted 7 Oct 2008 , 5:16pm

Thanks so much! I'll look for a GFS here in Las Vegas and give Sam's a call.
Thanks again,
Jodie

Thanks! I'll ask next time I go!

Are you anywhere near a Dawn Foods? Many of their warehouses have a Will Call Desk. That's where I get mine.

sillyjodes Posted 10 Oct 2008 , 6:13pm

Ok, so no dawn or GFS, I still need to give Sam's a call, it may be my best bet.

tripleD Posted 27 Oct 2008 , 12:02pm

try the buisness section in the phone book.look for bakery supply wholesale . I use a bakery supply buisness in my area. they have every thing that a bakery uses all in large sizes. they sell to me all the time they beat sam's in price by alot.
good luck

They only sell cake flour in 6# bags for $5. By comparison, Restaurant Depot sells 50# bags of cake flour for $15.

leah_s Posted 30 Oct 2012 , 8:20pm

Jodie, You've got Freed's right there in Vegas.  One of the largest bakeries in the whole country.  Maybe they would sell you a 50# bag?  Or just ask where they buy their flour.

AlicesMadBatter Posted 7 Dec 2012 , 5:39pm

Does anyone make their own cake flour? Does it work just as well? Cake four just seems $$$ to me.

aprilismaius Posted 7 Dec 2012 , 6:09pm

I order my cake flour from Honeyville Grain  store.honeyvillegrain.com/sno-kingcakeflour50lb.aspx
