WOW! That cake looks fantastic!! And I'm sure it's all the better because of the good stuff its made of. What is white wheat pastry flour?

Thanks! There is white wheat and then there is red wheat. Red wheat is heavier and darker, better for breads. White wheat (the actual wheat kernel) is lighter in color and texture. It's better for pastries, etc. I think pastry flour is just the texture it is ground into, like a regular pastry flour- I think it's finer than regular. Not 100% sure though.
