I received my 18 pounds of cake flour today

Cake flour seems to the next item to be disappearing from the shelves of stores. I tried a number of my local stores, and they no longer have it, and the help says it's unlikely they'll have it for the foreseeable future. I finally found a source, and got it for a very good price, very close to what I'd pay for it locally, even after $5 shipping. There are plenty of jerks on ebay and Amazon selling 2 pound boxes of cake flour for $10-15.

Jerks? Shipping at a minimum is going to be around $10 alone. Just how much do you think they’re profiting here?

Odd. I just checked the restaurant supply house I use sometimes. one 3 miles NE, another 2 miles due south. Both show stock of both cake or pastry flour just under $24 for 50# bags. Multiple whole wheat options in 25# or 50# bags.

2 parts cake with 1 part AP (by weight).
