Does anyone know where to buy Softasilk cake flour? Super Target has discontinued it. The Super Walmart Discontinued it too. Thanks.

You should be able to get it at the regular grocery store (Jewel/Osco in your area or Hy-Vee?) in the baking isle. I found mine at Cub if you have those.

I got mine at Smith's Grocery (I think it's called Kroger in other parts of the country).
It was with the cake mixes; not the flour.

I find mine at all the regular grocery stores, sometimes with the cake mixes sometimes with the flour.

I make my own cake flour. For every cup of flour, remove 2 Tablespoons and put in 2 Tablespoons of corn starch. sift it together a few times over a bowl. It's cheaper for me. Our grocery store charges A LOT for the Soft as Silk brand ...

WOW! I didn't even know you could make your own. I learn something new everyday.

FYI, that's a baking substitution not a true equivalent for cake flour....
(Cake flour has a lower protein content than AP flour...)

And if you have access to Gordon Food Service, cake flour can be special ordered in a bulk bag. (Think it was 25#.)

Yep this can be done. I just read somewhere that 1 3/4 T flour is to 1 T corn starch. Or it might be the other way around. It was in an old cookbook my MIL just gave to me. The problem is she gave me a whole box and I can't remember which book it is in. As soon as I find it again, I'll post the correct one.

King Arthur flour does this too. They call it a cake flour mix. It is unbleached flour and cornstarch. It is also expensive. I used it a couple of years ago, but can't remember the results. I'll have to try it again as they have now found that bleached flour leaves fat like deposits in animals that accumulates and never leaves the body. it has been not to be harmful. But if I can get the same light cake using unbleached flour and corn starch, then why not use that instead.
