I was wandering what the difference is between cake flour and all-purpose flour. Also, is self-rising the same as cake flour? I'm kinda new to this!

Cake flour is a finer grind than all-purpose flour. You can use the all-purpose in place of cake flour by deducting 2 T. per cup of flour.

Self-rising flour contains baking powder and sometimes salt.

Here's a link with more info than you probably want or need. icon_rolleyes.gif
