I use the Cake Mix extender and didn't have cake flour this afternoon...this is a last minute cake for a co-worker's daughter. I have a meeting at 6 PM and needed to the cake to be baked so I could decorate tonight, so I used just one cup of all purpose flour instead of one cup of cake flour.

I googled after cake is in oven and realize...I should have added cornstarch. Is the cake going to be edible or do I need to dump and start over? The batter was delicious.

If it was the WASC recipe, I always use regular flour in it and it comes out delicious.

Yes, what she^^^^ said. I use all-purpose flour in WASC all the time.

Awesome! It wasn't that one, but the one that adds extra egg, sugar, flour, sour cream, vanilla, and salt. I just don't have time to run back to the store for more supplies today.

My mentor told me that if I dont have a cake flour on hand, I can substitute all purpose flour minus 2 TBSP. so if the recipe calls for 1 cup cake flour, you can use 1 cup all purpose flour minus 2 TBSP. I hope this helps.
