3. Mix Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until combined. Set aside. Pro tip: Cake flour is much lighter than regular flour, which helps to create red velvet's signature texture. If you don't have cake flour, you can use all-purpose flour. Sift together 2 and 2/3 cups of all-purpose flour with 1/3 cup of cornstarch, and measure 3 cups from this mixture.
