    I wouldn't but if you decide to go ahead, will you please post the result? Swansdown cake flour comes in 2lb boxes, doesn't cost a lot and keeps well.

      I wouldn't recommend adding rice flour because it changes the texture of your cake. You can still use all purpose flour; it just wouldn't be as soft or light textured as it would be.
