Self-rising flour / cake flour recipe

I know how to make self-rising flour using all purpose flour, baking powder & salt, but I just have cake flour available. Does anyone know how I can use cake flour as a substitute in the recipe?

Thanks in advance!

So I realized the recipe (coconut cake) is very similar to a yellow cake recipe I swear by so I used 3c cake flour + 1 Tbsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp salt. It came out just fine. :)
