I'm starting to run low on cake flour and will need to purchase some more.  The only brand I've seen in stores around here is Soft A Silk (I think that's what it's called).  I don't have any complaints about it.  I order several other ingredients from King Arthur Flour via the internet and I buy their unbleached all purpose and their bread flour at Raley's.  I was wondering if anyone has ever used their cake flour and what your thoughts on it are.  I've heard of a couple other brands, but I haven't seen them in any of the grocery stores here.  Is it worth purchasing on the internet and having shipped to me, or should I just stick with my current brand?

AI use Swans Down, but that's just because that's what's available here. I've heard good things about Soft a Silk. I say if it ain't broke don't fix it. If you're happy with your current cake flour I would stick with it

That's what I was thinking, too, Morgan, but since I do purchase from KAF, I was just wondering what their cake flour was like and whether or not I should try it with my next order from them.  Not changing definitely eliminates problems that could crop up changing my regular products, though.

AOn King Arthur products, for me, their bleached Queen G cake flour, yes. Their unbleached cake [I]blend[/I], no. I also like using White Lilly for cake flour. But I also use SwansDown and Softasilk, too. I'm fickle I guess.
