Question about self-rising flour and baking mix differences

Can someone tell me how to convert recipes from all purpose flour to----rising flour or -------baking mix like Bisquick. If I knew what to leave off on which ones, it would be helpful in saving time. Hope someone understands these differences. Thanks!! Eva

Hi everyone! I haven't been here in a while. Not been well.

I did want to see if anyone could clarify the difference in Cake flour, All purpose, bread flour, and self-rising. Is cake flour the same as self-rising?

I also wanted to see if anyone found the recipe that was mentioned in a previous post. It was a base cookie recipe that you mix up & keep in a jar, then when you want to do cookies, you just add a few ingredients, then your chocolate chips or whatever, and bake. Makes it much faster. Mom had the recipe & there were probably 6 different kinds of cookies that you could do in 1 setting if you did smaller portions of each. Did the person with the recipe ever find it? If not, does anyone know this recipe? It would be so handy for cutting steps & getting cookies going faster. Thanks & God bless! Eva :D

Oops I spelled cake wrong. The cake recipe I mentioned is one that I created. I am trying to learn on my own for a pastry chef since I can't go to school.

Hi everyone, I am new and I was reading the comments but I wasn't sure if cake flour and self rising flour was the same? I also was wondering if I used self rising flour for my cake recipe would it keep my ckae from falling as it cools? Thanks for your help.
