I use 4 ounces as the conversion.

Is it "a cup of sifted cake flour," or "a cup of cake flour, sifted?" Those directions might sould the same, but they really are not. A cup of sifted cake flour will likely weigh less than a cup of cake flour, sifted. And will make a big difference in the outcome of your cake. I'm big on weighing.

It is a cup of sifted cake flour -- and I see now how vague I was in my question. I want to make this layer cake: http://food52.com/recipes.... But then I started noticing how all cake recipes on this website (which I love, don't get me wrong) use cup rather than weight measures. Any reason? I'm so big on weighing I think twice when a recipe doesn't include weights.

Thanks for the help!
