Should be fine...may sink a little in the middle. Any particular reason you want to use it?

I try to limit the types of flour I keep on my shelf. I keep cake & pastry flour. I also have bread flour. I was wondering if for a cake the cake & pastry flour would be even better. Or would it be better to use a combination of the cake & pastry four to emulate all purpose flour?

I would just give it a go with the pastry flour....you may prefer the result.
