It's best to stick with what the recipe calls for, but if you really want to try the substitution you will want to do it like this:

1 cup + 2 tbsp cake flour = 1 cup all-purpose flour

Here is a link to a great website describing the differences in all of the flours.

I really prefer any type of cake made with cake flour as it has a smaller and more delicate crumb than a cake made with all-purpose. icon_smile.gif

However, my twin sister really prefers pound cake made with AP flour. So I usually wind up making two different pound cakes...and there's enough left over to freeze for future treats! icon_lol.gif

Highly recommend the websites provided by lees_luv thumbs_up.gif

I don't have a single recipe that calls for cake flour, so all mine are all purpose. Check out this pic though:
