You can use sifted flower if desired. sifting ensures there are no lumps of flour sticking together, which is also supposed to make a cake lighter. Plain flour is not sifted. Usually sifted flour is used to help certain recipes rise like biscuits, breads and such. cake flour is lower in protein than regular flour so there's less gluten in the flour, meaning the texture will be less stretchy and more crumbly. . In general, any additional ingredients that will prevent long gluten chains from forming (fats, oils, egg yolk) will help give the cake a more crumbly texture. You can use regular flour too.
