By downloading any 4-H resource you agree not to use, distribute, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, publicly perform and publicly display such resources (in whole or in part) for any purpose other than delivering the 4-H program. You also agree to give credit to the original creators. Your provincial or national 4-H organization may have restrictions on the types of 4-H projects or activities which can be completed in your area.

The Environment & Healthy Living
You can substitute all-purpose flour for cake flour but the substitution is not one to one. The general rule of substitution is 1 cup of all-purpose flour minus 2 tablespoons is equivalent to 1 cup of cake flour. Find out more about caking decorating in this 4-H project!
