Comment on pink lady cake by Patty

Hi. I want to make this very cake for my two granddaughters’ birthdays this week. The 3 year old knows all about you. She calls you Deb and loves making the oatmeal cookies from your cookbook–mostly for the batter. She’s definitely a batter girl. I’ve been to every grocery store in Baltimore and can not find cake flour. Have you made it without? Should I try making my own with cornstarch? Thanks!
