Whole Weat Pastry Flour ... Can I use It?

As a special request, I am baking another carrot cake this week . My recipe calls for a combo of all purpose and whole wheat flours, but I was in a hurry today and I bought whole wheat PASTRY flour by mistake. Is this a huge mistake, or can I use it anyway. I don't really have time to go to the store again, but I could just use the all purpose.

    You absolutely can use it. Combined with all purpose, it will likely make a lighter-textured cake than regular WW does. You can also use just the WW pastry flour alone, and you'll likely end up with a similar result to your normal with AP/WW. I use all WW pastry for many quick breads/muffins and denser and casual cakes like this.
